200 Acres Hunting/Recreational Land
Page down through the photographs or click on the “slideshow.” Here’s a well-located 200 acres with a particularly nice variety of forest types, plenty of cover, and lots of open hardwood/softwood forest with good visibility that is ideal for a deer camp.
It’s a great location 6 miles off M-28, 4 1/2 miles from blacktop, between Marquette and Munising. In addition to excellent hunting this land offers a perfect “base of operations” with easy access to some of the best and wildest lands in the north. Large cooperate timberlands in “CFA” adjoin the property. CFA stands for Commercial Forest Act, which offers landowners a tax break in return for allowing public access for hunting, fishing and year round outdoor recreation.
Twenty minutes to the west Marquette is the largest city in the U.P. with great restaurants, supplies and city services. Twenty minutes to the east Munising has the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Grand Island (administered under the National Park Service), and the Hiawatha National Forest. Lake Superior lies just 4 1/2 miles north of the property across M-28, and that good highway gives you fast access from anywhere. There is more big land available to you here for hiking, hunting and outdoor recreation than you can possibly ever see.
Materials are attached to help you find this property and appreciate its surroundings: An aerial view showing the roads with directions, and a link to the Jim Wells Forest that adjoins the property on the south and east, and a link to the ForestLand Group’s web page.
Here are directions: Find the turn-off to Deerton, between Shot Point and Shelter Bay along M28. Turn south on Deerton Road toward Deerton. Travel 1.4 miles south to the “T” intersection with the Deerton-Onota Road. Turn left (to the east) and proceed about 2 miles to Onota. Immediately past Onota you will encounter an intersection.
Turn right (to the southeast) and proceed up a steep hill. At the top of the hill (about 0.5 miles) is another intersection near an old apple orchard. Turn right (south) on this Forest Service road. Follow it past one intersection for about 1.2 miles to the Michigan State University Agricultural Experiment Station Jim Wells Forest (www.maes.msu.edu./wells), and continue through the MSU property and onto the subject 200 acres.
Once on the property if you follow the thread of the road about a half file you will intersect a cross road running E/W. To the west you will come to a stream and ponds. To the east you will come to an old clear cut (nice wildlife habitat) at the eastern edge of the property. The lines are painted in around the 1160; no lines yet on the 140, which includes the old clear cut now dense with young saplings.
