What winter? Another Mississippi hunting season is in the books… There is no question this past season was one of the warmest on record, it seemed every time a good cold front would work its way into the Magnolia state it was interrupted by a stronger warm front moving in from the south… Despite the somewhat adverse weather there was still lots of good action this year for duck hunters. For most, this was the year of the Teal as the warm conditions never really moved them out and seemingly never really moved the Mallards in. Although there were some great Mallard days the majority of the season was just not cold enough to keep the big ducks in the state; leaving them to our neighbors in the north. Mid-Western states experienced some of the best Mallard action in several years. Bottom line for Mississippi if there’s no snow and no freezing condition to the north its going to be tough down here.
However based on statewide reporting Mississippi stacked up some GREAT bucks this season. I personally know of four 180″ deer killed this season and several in the mid- 150’s.. It seems our great state is really making a big move toward trophy management and seeing those results more and more each year!
Land Markets – “Investors continue to seek alternatives”
There is no doubt that investing continues to be somewhat of a moving target, with global turmoil still scaring the heck out of most. Finding alternative methods to protect and grow your portfolio remains challenging. Mississippi’s land market however continues to gain high levels of attention from out of state and global investors, mainly due to some relatively simple methods. Low acre pricing, moderate Ad-valorem tax rates, available properties and the ability to create income that shows annual cash return. Basically these are the tools needed to make land investment attractive. The basic outlook is with global demand certain to rise for commodities and wood products; being positioned now with properties that can produce these goods equals long term appreciation and capital growth on the investment. So now starting down the road of land investment what can a person expect to see over the next several years? Historically land has appreciated in the neighborhood of 3-5% annually, plus factoring the annual income potential could give investors the ability to create somewhere in the neighborhood of 6% – 12% annual return depending on several factor that can only be assessed property to property..
