Take a Hike
Once you find a promising parcel, contact the landowner, either directly or through your agent, and get permission to walk the place over. Then let your hunting instincts kick in. Does it have food, cover, and water? Is there tillable ground for food plots and good trees for stands? All the while, keep in mind that changing the character of a piece of land takes a big investment of time, effort, and cash. No place will have everything you're looking for, but make sure the one you buy already has most of it.
