Well gents, I've got some logging going on next door. I found out I have a 3rd neighbor that owns 350 acres that borders my lower 20 between the creek and the river. I always thought my cattle farming neighbor owned that section as well, but evidently it was an older couple that recently passed. I think the kids are selling the timber to pay for the inheritance tax. Initially I wanted to make sure the logger didn't come over my line so I went out to look around. It appeared the surveyor wasn't quite sure on the line based on the flagging he started and then stopped. I ended up getting in touch with the logger and found out they had some old documentation with unclear boundaries, so i supplied my plat, deed, and aerial photo with boundary lines to clear it up. He was able to find my survey at the courthouse and is now confident on the line and should have it marked soon. Additionally, after inquiring with the logger, I may end getting about 8 acres of my lower 20 logged as well so it could be a blessing in disguise! Best thing is they would haul the timber out through the neighbor's since that is how they're coming in. Bedding, food, and some money in my pocket with none of the mess of logging decks and skidder trails, except where i want them. I hope it works out!
First pic is the current work I've done to create bedding pockets. Second pic is the proposed logging area. Ideally this will not impact how I hunt and access along the river, only improve the quality of the hunting.
