There are a number of factors that have led to the decrease of hunters in the United States
(PRWEB) December 16, 2008
Atlanta, GA. For many years, hunting has been a great American tradition and pastime, but according to recent reports, the number of hunters and hunting families has decreased over the last decade. However, despite reports of this trend, hunting and recreational land still remains one of the most sought after land types for potential land buyers. According to a recent LANDFLIP.com poll, 36.8 percent, an overwhelming majority of the respondents, indicated that they are currently searching for hunting and recreational land for purchase.
"There are a number of factors that have led to the decrease of hunters in the United States," said Ryan Folk, founder of LANDFLIP.com. "For example, many states have reported plans to increase their license fees to cover the cost of maintaining public hunting and fishing areas, and a lot of hunting land is being lost to urbanization. However, hunting is still a passion and a treasured tradition for many American families, especially in the Midwest, and there are still a great number of hunters who will preserve the tradition and continue to drive the sale of hunting and recreational land."
Hunting and recreational land listings in the Midwest, and throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico are currently available on LANDFLIP.com. Many of the listings have been recently reduced and others are available for auction. The listings on the website provide comprehensive descriptions of the terrain, acreage and location, as well as the availability of game, food plots, fields, creek frontage and utilities and services. Complete contact information for the selling agent is also available for each listing.
In addition to hunting and recreational land, LANDFLIP.com also features horse farms, waterfront and mountain property, timberland, ranches and horse farms for sale. According to the website's recent poll, retirement, homesite or minifarm was the second most popular listing category for potential buyers, and the preferred land type for 21 percent of respondents. Income producing farm, timber or agricultural land followed with 16.6 percent. Additionally, 12.9 percent of respondents are currently searching for waterfront land, while only 8.5 percent of respondents are seeking residential or commercial developments.
"The variety of listings that we offer is unparalleled," said Folk. "Our goal is to meet the unique needs of land owners, real estate brokers, agents, auctioneers, buyers and investors. We offer sellers an affordable option for showcasing their land, and we give buyers access to all of the resources and information they need to find exactly what they're looking for, and to make informed decisions."
