FIFE LAKE, MI - Dave Tuxbury ... [cached]

FIFE LAKE, MI - Dave Tuxbury says his Deer Tracks Ranch offers the best of what northern Michigan once had in abundance - virgin forest land filled with wildlife.

Tuxbury, founder and owner of Maple Island Log Homes, says it's time for someone else to enjoy the 1,465-acre hunting preserve he has maintained and built up during the past 20 years about 30 miles southeast of Traverse City.
Though he was forced by the state's Department of Natural Resources in 2012 to destroy a herd of feral swine he kept on the property, Tuxbury said the high-profile dispute with the state is unrelated to his decision to sell.
"That situation really doesn't bother me anymore," said Tuxbury, who still keeps buffalo, deer and elk on the property.
Tuxbury said he wants to pass the land along to someone who can fully appreciate the property's half-mile of frontage on the Manistee River, its three miles of trout streams, the luxurious cabins, lodges, hunting blinds, 110-foot fire tower and an onsite deer processing facility.
"This parcel has never been touched by man for millions of years," says Tuxbury, who bought the fenced preserve 30 years ago from the Upjohn family, the Kalamazoo pharmaceutical makers who used it as a family compound.
"They kept it natural and I have the same philosophy that they had," Tuxbury says. "It's never been cleared, it's never been farmed. It's actually virgin property."
While much of the property has been untouched, what has been touched by Tuxbury is rustic in a luxurious style.
Tuxbury says his greatest pleasure came from being able to watch the wildlife grow and live a full life on his property.
Located half an hour from Traverse City's Airport, Tuxbury says his property would be ideal for someone who is very private and wants to get away from it all. Or, it could be used as a corporate setting and host larger groups.

During the time between hunts, the owner, Dave Tuxbury, took us on a tour of the ranch. Dave even let Tyler drive the golf cart.

We came up to the swamp and Dave had built a long bridge to the other side.

Dave Tuxbury, owner, and Bill Klein have offered a whitetail management youth hunt at the ranch for a buck scoring up to 125 B & C. This is an opportunity for someone to give a youth (hopefully a first-time hunter) the chance to experience white-tail deer hunting.
