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.

On vacation in western Montana one year, Dave Tuxbury noticed that a number of log homes were being built.
Right then and there, he knew his life was about to change. "My week's vacation stretched into a life full of wood chips," he says. That was about 20 years ago. The log home industry was in its infancy and Dave started learning everything he could about the art of building handcrafted log homes. Shortly thereafter, he returned to Michigan and founded the first handcrafted log yard east of the Mississippi with nationwide sales. In time, the company established log settling guidelines that are used today by companies worldwide. Along the line, Tuxbury recognized there was a market for log restoration and replacement. His company, American Log Restoration, has repaired over 500 structures, including the original Harley Davidson estate and Michigan's Log Castle. LHDI: How often should homeowners inspect their logs and what should they look for? At what point does restoration become necessary? Tuxbury: Every spring and fall. Tuxbury: There are a number of things that cause logs to deteriorate: Tuxbury: All rotted logs should be replaced as soon as possible. Tuxbury: There are so many ways to do it. Tuxbury: In our initial visit, we collect some background information and conduct an inspection of log walls.
