163 Ac Scored on Prime Whitetail Real Estate - Waukesha Co

Unread postby Sam Ubl » Tue Mar 16, 2010 3:48 am

Well, my hardwork is starting to pay off. I moved from New Berlin to my first home with my wife in Mukwonago. To and from work we pass some beautiful properties with constant show of deer - and so I get to drooling.

I logged onto the Waukesha Co mapping web-page and began researching the landowners by viewing the topo parcel map. I made a LOT of phone calls, knocked on too many doors, and finally reached an extremely nice woman who's graced me with sole permission to bow and gun hunt her 163 acres of butter land.

Unhunted for 3 years, the land shows promise with three 20 acre corn fields, marsh grass and dogwood inbetween with suitable stand trees mixed in. The further back you go to the south where the land butts up to the Fox River, 15 acres of great hardwoods - White Oak. On the other side of the river is Vernon Marsh, an area only accessible by canoe.

I visited the nice lady and her boyfriend, reviewed the plot maps and aerials, talked about conditions and "instances" (what if I run into a tree stand or trespasser?). . . At the end of the day, I walked out of there with a pack of brats, the go-ahead to bring an occasional friend of two, and the ability to gun hunt as well.

What does she want out of the deal? Nothing more than some venison - a deal maker that I can certainly afford :P

Check it out! More to come as trail cams are set mid summer and scouting energy becomes motivated.

Good for you Sam......I would just be hesitant posting pic's of the land with that kind of deal. You just never know who views these sites....

I'd like to, too. . . BUT, you can't edit the first post of a new topic. I texted Brittany to see what she can do.

Sam, Congrats on the land. I have thought about doing that, but was afraid of having all those doors slammed in my face. How many people did you talk to before you got permission? Do you have any tips other than be polite?

Thanks!

To answer the "Asking" question. It's always easier to be hung up on then have a door slammed in your face, or worse, have a guy like Dan's buddy met who looks both ways in a creepy fashion and asks, "Are you alone? Does anyone know you're here?"

I was looking at properties I drive by or aren't too far off the beaten path from my way to and from work. The whole intent was to score something for mid to late fall that wouldn't mean me driving to Holy Hill area with limited daylight - if any. That said, when I make contact, I introduce myself in such a way that hopefully doesn't sound like I'm a salesmen, always asking for the person I'm seeking by first name only. Once on the line, I immediately tell them I live in the area, just moved from New Berlin. Before asking about hunting, I ask to be sure they own the (i.e. 34 acre parcel just off Cty Rd ? and Hwy ?). If they say, "Yes I do", I tell them I drive by their parcel every day and have been waiting for an opportunity to talk with them and find out if anyone is hunting it. If they say, "No", I let them know I'm looking for a place that's convenient to spend a couple hours after work once in a while in the treestand, and if their's any hope for me out there.

In this instance for the 163 ac, the owner at first didn't sound thrilled, asking if I was looking to buy the land or something - I don't think she understood I was asking to hunt for free. After I explained I wasn't in the market to buy/lease, just trying to find somewhere closer to home to spend a few hours in the woods after work now and again, she asked, "What am I getting out of the whole deal?"

Before I could respond, and I wasn't sure what I was going to say other than offer some sort of services to her (like pick up along the roadway if need be, come over and do some yard work, what have you), she suggested, "Venison?"

I said, "Ma'am, if that sounds fair to you then I think we have a deal because I have more venison than I know what to do with every year." She complied and we were in agreement.

She invited me over to meet me and put a face to the name/voice and we sat down, over-looked the plot map and aerials and shot the sh@# for an hour or so. I brought my wife along, too, that way she'd hopefully get the correct impression of me, that I'm a respectful guy who loves his family and simply has a passion for being in the woods. Her boyfriend gave me a pack of some gormet brats and we were on our way.

I sure am lucky and feel honored that she trusts me. I told her I will do more than accept her trust out there, I told her I'd earn it.

Thank you - I'll be sure to post updates of scouting and hunts! Have to work on getting that opening thread of excitement edited and remember that for next time, lol.
