GOVERNMENT FRUIT RAISING LANDS IN NORTHWEST
GOVERNMENT FRUIT RAISING LANDS IN NORTHWEST—Will some brother lover of outdoor life kindly tell me through the columns of H-T-T of some locality in the Northwest, in Idaho, Washington, Montana or Wyoming where land suitable for wheat and fruit raising can be obtained under the homestead laws?
It must be near a lake where small, game, such as ducks, geese, partridge, etc., and large game such as grizzly bear, elk, deer, mountain sheep, etc., are abundant. Government land is still to be had in each of the states mentioned, but it should be known that practically all of this land is worthless unless it can be irrigated. Occasionally the government and sometimes private capitalists irrigate a large section and this land is for sale at reasonable prices. In the northwest all of the big game and most of the fur bearing animals except coyotes are found only in the mountains, and the farming land is far removed from such places. Perhaps one of the most likely places is Flatbead Co., Mont, but I believe you will have a difficult task to find what you are looking for anywhere in the United States. There is only one part of the northwest where elks are still abundant, namely, in northwestern Wyoming, and grizzly bears are not abundant anywhere. You should read “Vacant Government Lands.”
