Default Abandoned Subdivisions

Close to my home there are about a half a dozen abandoned subdivisions that were going up before the housing market bubble burst, some of which are now completely bank owned. Is it illegal to hunt on this land? I imagine it is with out written permission from the bank...just seems like such a waste...

You just want to sit back and laugh when you read his next post about getting arrested for trespassing and hunting without permission.

Well, how do you go about getting permission from a bank? Would they grant it?

I wouldn't bet in getting permission. They'd most likely not want the the liability.

Thats even if you figured out who the RIGHT person is to ask.

I have been leasing land like this for a couple years. Its hard to get in touch with the right people it may take several (8) phone calls before you find the owners. Most are outta state and make sure to let them know your willing to get insurance.

I've seen that in south florida countless times. If you offer to pay some or all of the property taxes and get insurance the bank begins to take you real seriously. They want to minimize expenses.

I've got permission to hunt one close to the house, but there are so many "uninvited guests" that I don't even bother. The deer there are just as spooky as on public land.

I did this for a couple of Years. Found one Owner who had 20 Acres somewhere in the Subdivision. Got permission from Him ...And just Hunted the entire place.
DNR stopped Me once and I told Him the 3 Hogs I had came from the 20 Acres.....Now He didn,t know where exactly that 20 Acres was, Niether did I . I even posted the roads leading into the area with a fake name on the Signs . Worked like gold till the State got all the land and made it a WMA .

Correct. You can also do it online since most tax offices have the info available on line now.

Is it even legal to hunt in an area zoned residential, which a subdivision surely is, abandoned or not. If not, I have access to several areas with my name on the building permits as the builder.

You're probably right. The two subdivisions I was thinking about are both right off a pretty busy roadway (Highway 17). More than likely it won't be worth the time or monetary investment to gain hunting privileges here.

The two that I was curious about are Clark's Island (which is now owned by Montgomery Bank and Trust) and Middleton Plantation. Both are walking distance from my house and would be very convenient, but probably not worth the time. As I said before, just seems like a waste of space...

I have a two simikar situations now, First is the my familys old homestead. Dad sold it to a developer, he gave us and every other who asked permission to hunt it. Well he lost it to the bank and now we can't get permission form the bank. The lending bank has never even been in the county according to the developer. His words were "whos gonna catch you and whos gonna know any difference."

Second, a golf course that went belly-up. Talk about sweet hunting. Everybody in town rides the trails, other hunters, bon fires, etc etc. Well we know the past owners personally and the ones who closed shop. Asked for permission and he said "i cant grant it, but i can tell you I wont press charges on yall when they come to me."

It is a total waste of fine land in both situations. The golf course is big time land and beautiful creeks, hardwoods. the other is a small tract, but multiple hunting spots
