Property Description

Hunting Property

These 140 +/- acres of forest land located on Wilder Davis Road in Bradford, Maine would be good for off grid homesteading, recreational hunting land, or just a great place to escape to from the busy world.

The land consists of softwood and mixed wood upland forest land and wetlands. Upland areas of this property have good soil for growing trees and have potential to convert to grazing lands. The wetlands provide a diverse habitat for wildlife from beaver and otters to ducks and geese. Whitetail deer hunting in this area is particularly good.

This property contains the headwaters of Logan Brook, a tributary of the Penobscot River. The brook is a small stream with a series of beaver ponds along its course. Ducks, wading birds, some wild brook trout and more can be found along this remote brook.

The forester managing this property prescribed a harvest to thin out overstocked and dying balsam fir and that was completed in February of 2021. The residual stand of mixed and softwood timber types should do well in the coming years and the new shoots will hold game animals in the area. This property is in the tree growth tax program keeping the taxes affordable for the future owner.

The property is located near the end of the Wilder Davis Road and abuts 160 +/- acres of land owned by the town of Bradford. This is one of the more remote parts of Bradford where your privacy is insured. The town of Bradford is in Penobscot County about 25 miles northwest of the city of Bangor. Population is about 1,290. Bradford geography is active and old farmland with large areas of undeveloped forest. The town has a historic library, a local store with everything from groceries to a lunch counter.

Penobscot County is in the heart of the state of Maine and occupies 3,550 +/- square miles and has a population of about 152,000, with most people living in Bangor, Brewer and the towns surrounding these two cities.
