Purchase of hunting land
The quality of the hunt is worth something, meaning you may not see many deer but few hunters too.
For the most part you really don't have to buy land in the U.P. to have a quality hunt. You just need a place to stay & then do some scouting. Grouse hunting is a great way to scout, any bird is a bonus.
There is enough Federal, State & CFR land to keep one occupied. Your own 40 will get boring after 1/2 a day of hunting, unless it's a prime location.
