Outstanding Value: 80 Acres of Prime Hunting Land Near Wascott, WI


For now, this is some of the best hunting land in Wascott.  For the future, its potential building sites with great views make it a tremendous investment.

80 acres prime hunting land with creek, trails, ridgelines, and several potential building sites that have easy access and tremendous views. Includes basic 3-season bunkhouse wired for use with a generator. Mix of terrain and trees, including white pine.

What makes this property such an exceptional value? It’s great hunting land, with a number of trails, clearings, and permanent stands.  Even though roads run through two corners of this parcel, the creek valley and meandering ridgelines make this property feel much larger than a mere 80 acres.  It’s plenty large enough for hunting with bow or rifle.

Not far from those two roads, you’ll find several potential building sites with great overlooks of the valley below.  For how, however, some of those sites are occupied by elevated deer stands.  They offer a great view, too.

New video: Tour Douglas County in the northwest corner of Northwest Wisconsin

Douglas County Wisconsin northwest corner of Northwest Wisconsin.

For some reason, the northwest corner of northwest Wisconsin remains largely undiscovered.  In the minds of many vacationers and home buyers from the Twin Cities, Eau Claire, or Chicago, there’s a large blank area on the map of Wisconsin; it extends all the way from Duluth to Hayward.  It’s time to fill in the blank.

Up here in my corner of Northwestern Wisconsin, you’ll find that Douglas County, Bayfield County, Washburn County, and Sawyer County all offer some great real estate bargains.  They also offer quiet, relaxing places to live or visit.  Within each county, you’ll find smaller pockets that each have their own distinct personalities.  All of them offer a wide variety of recreational opportunities right outside your door:

  • Canoe, kayak, or boat on our streams, rivers, and lakes.
  • Experience world-class trout streams.
  • Enjoy great fishing for muskies, northern pike, walleye, bass, and bluegills.
  • Swim or sunbathe on sandy beaches.
  • Play a few rounds of golf on one of our many courses.
  • Hike, bike, ATV, or snowmobile on an extensive network of trails.
  • Pump up your tires and get ready for some great road and mountain biking.
  • Enjoy the winter woods on snowshoes or cross-country skis.
  • Hunt large game, small game, upland game, or waterfowl.
  • Participate in a wide variety of family-oriented community events.
  • Simply get out and enjoy nature.

I live near Gordon on the 1900-acre Gordon-St Croix Flowage; it’s in the southern part of Douglas County.  My home neighborhood covers Douglas County, western Bayfield County, and northern Washburn County.

Over the years, I’ve become well-acquainted with the lakes and communities throughout these counties, as well as with the Hayward Lakes area of Sawyer County.  I’d be glad to show you properties in that area.

You may be able to get more for your money over my way.  This truly is the last undiscovered corner of Northern Wisconsin.  In many cases, the same dollars will get you more home, more cabin, more shoreline on a clear, deep lake, or more acres of great hunting land.

I’d like to help my clients, both present and future, learn more about the undiscovered and under-rated northwestern corner of northwestern Wisconsin.  Who knows?  Maybe someday we’ll become neighbors.

Why buy a cabin in Northwest Wisconsin?

As with hunting land, buying a cabin up north in Northwest Wisconsin maybe isn’t for everyone.  Some people prefer to stay at a resort.  There’s no hassle, no maintenance, no sweeping up all that sand from the beach, and you can stay at a different resort every year.

Some people, however, stay at the same resort every year.  One of our neighbors owns a resort down the road; he has several families who ask for the same cabin every summer—usually for the same week.  That’s another way of thinking about this whole business.

But if you own a cabin, obviously, it’s YOURS.  You can do what you want with it.  Depending on how close the neighbors are, you may have a quiet, private cabin experience.  Or, if the neighbors are closer, you might have long-term relationships with your “cabin neighbors” who turn into “cabin friends.”  If you’re really lucky, you’ll have both the solitude AND the socializing.

A cabin can be a good long-term investment—but only if you sell it.  Some cabins stay in families for generations.  For those families, the cabin is an investment in shared memories.  But it’s not part of their retirement plans—except maybe in the sense of planning to spend more time there after they’re retired.

There’s also, however, something important about that continuity of place.  It’s a feeling of belonging you just don’t get when you’re renting a cabin from someone else.  Returning to that same special place several times a summer…  It’s different somehow.  It’s a way for couples and families to build memories together.

It’s hard to describe.  But sometimes owning something more tangible can lead to a lot of rewards that are less tangible.  Cabins are like that.

Happy Wisconsin deer hunting opener!

So Sven and Ole are dragging a deer out of the woods by its hind legs. Einar sees em, says “Wouldn’t it be easier to pull that deer the other way, so the hairs aren’t bending backwards? Less friction, eh?” They both say “Ja!”
And…half hour later Ole says “You know, Sven this sure is easier.” Sven says “Ja, but we keep going deeper into the woods.”

HappyWisconsin deer opener! Wishing you more success and less friction.
