Missaukee County is located near the northwestern center of Michigan. Missaukee County has a land area of 564.73 square miles and a water area of 9.10 square miles. The county is ranked 69th in population for the state of Michigan. Missaukee County has over 100,000 acres of state land, which accounts for more than a third of the county and is largely situated to the north of M-55 and along the eastern border of the county. Northern hardwoods, oak, aspen, and lowland conifers are among the cover types found on state land.
Agriculture is prevalent in Missaukee County, and while it may be found across the county, it is primarily situated south of M-55. Livestock accounts for a substantial portion of farm revenue, and massive dairy farms on the county’s southern border grow row crops for silage. The Deadstream Swamp is located in the county’s northeast region and consists of nearly 11,000 acres of mostly lowland conifer, containing a high concentration of northern white cedar. Deadstream Swamp is the largest traditional deer yarding area in the Northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan.
The deer population looks to have risen during the last five years, attributed to a series of warmer winters and a sustained decline in hunter numbers. Whitetail deer, grouse, bear, ducks, turkey, and geese are among the game species available for hunting along the farm land, vacant land, waterfront, and hunting land for sale by Michigan Whitetail Properties in Missaukee County, Michigan.
