Option 1 - I would take on an equal partner if managing and hunting trophy deer interests you or you simply want to be a part of this each year. There is a 2014 log home/cabin that is rented year-round, a 2015 smaller cabin for hunters to stay in on 155+- acres and a 40X100 old barn for dry storage. The income on this property should be a consideration when calculating a mortgage payment (or I jokingly jab at my "responsible" friends that extra #'s on a 401k doesn't provide much enjoyment while it grows for 25 years).
I enjoy managing the land for wildlife and talking to hunters who purchase hunts. Upon sincere interest and visitation, you're more than welcome to ask about revenue from deer and turkey hunts. I believe in "1 in the hand than 2 in the bush" so there is always room from improvement, but year after year, you want good bucks available to shoot and you CAN over hunt properties.

You can find Kentucky hunting land for sale, but not all land is created equally. Location. Location. Location as they say. Vehicular traffic, water/lake limitations, developments, nearby farms that will be turned into subdivisions, it all takes a toll on the deer herd. My area tends to be hilly, aka, 100's of years of non development with no future growth/urban sprawl on the horizon. Probably the real value is having good neighbors that are only interested in big bucks.
