I'm looking at buying a new property but 80% is in a federal wetlands program. The idiot current owners took a buyout in 96 for $26k to enter the land into a wetlands program. Basically it gives the federal government 100% control over the properties management BUT only allows the owner to hunt it. No one else can trespass but I'm pretty concerned that the government controls the management of the property. I would not be able to plant seeds of any kind or manage the timber or anything on it. Anyone with any experience in this area???? Did the government do you any harm in your deer hunting????
