Tons of field edges, a variety of habitats and great access options combined with quality whitetails consistently found here make this a truly outstanding property. This farm hunts a lot bigger than it is because you can hunt with any wind direction due to the multiple areas of bedding cover, good trails, and elevation changes. The Turkey River serves as a boundary for much of the property and adds more high-quality recreational opportunities throughout the year.
The large percentage of acreage in CRP not only create more highly attractive wildlife habitat but also provides a great return on investment not always found on a hunting tract of this quality. The cabin has a great layout and completes the full getaway experience that your family or guests will fall in love with no matter what the reason for their visit. The barn is in great condition, currently being used as storage but has great potential.
The food plots, blinds and tree-stands have all been put in very strategic locations that were thoughtfully planned for low intrusion. Miles of trails connect all these locations and make travel on the farm enjoyable. Properties do not get more turnkey than this and the season is right around the corner.
Tract 1: 40+/- ac with approximately 20 acres (TBD) enrolled in CRP @$249.03 per acre thru 2023. This tract represents a solid investment with outstanding hunting potential. Great access coming off Eagle Road on the Northwest corner of the property allows easy entry by foot or vehicle. See the trail camera pictures taken on this part of the property. A truly outstanding under 50 acre combination farm with building potential.
Tract 2: 140 +/- acres Phenomenal hunting tract with CRP income. Outdoor minded enthusiasts are going to love what this tract has to offer both from a hunting and fishing standpoint. Extremely diverse habitat found at several elevations helps this farm hunt much larger than you would expect, the ideal layout and terrain features include abundant edge also contribute to this great quality. Most of the preferred bedding and holding habitat is centrally located allowing lots of hunting options for any wind direction.
Access from multiple locations also creates ideal entry and exit situations. The Turkey River borders the property on part of the South border, another key feature. Both turkey and whitetail deer hunting success have been a consistent part of its history along with outstanding year-round stream fishing opportunities for Walleyes and Smallmouth Bass. The approximately 57 acres of CRP enrolled thru 2023 @249.03 per acre makes it a solid investment that could provide many priceless outdoor memories.
Tract 3: 2.5+/- acres with home detached garage and barn. The recently renovated home is located in a great setting for anyone wanting a quiet, part-time or full-time get away. It sits at the dead end of 275th street and has a gated entrance. The giant old pines that partially border the tract really enhance the country vibe you will get here. The new detached 24x24 garage (2019) gives you a place to hide your vehicles and the renovated 32x48 barn has potential to be used for just about anything you can imagine. The home was recently remodeled with a rustic design and has 1,385+/- square feet of total gross living area. The kitchen and living area will not disappoint and need to be seen to be fully appreciated. The large yard will be perfect for get-togethers with friends and family.
Tract 4: 70+/- acres. Some of the best escape and bedding habitats, when it comes to buck preference, are found in abundance on this tract. River bottom willow thickets are buck magnets for most of the season and warm season grasses can hold more bucks per acre than standing corn. The 21.86 acres of CRP grass generates an annual payment of $3,386, making it a solid investment. The property is bordered on the west side by about a half mile of Turkey River, on a stretch well known for kayaking, canoeing and excellent fishing for Smallmouth Bass and other popular species.
Tract 5: 15+/- acres. When considering a quality hunting property of this size, one should look at it with 3 major components in mind.
1) Is it in a good area for trophy class animals?
2) When looking at an aerial, does the property connect large blocks of obvious habitat on adjacent properties?
3) Are there adequate features on the property that will draw animals to it, food and water, thick bedding or escape cover or terrain features and limited road frontage to name a few?
If you look at all the aerials for this tract you can see many of the quality features needed for it to be considered as a quality smaller hunting tract. Other great features of this property include over a half mile of Turkey River frontage, one of the most popular rivers in this part of the state for a long list of recreational opportunities including kayaking, canoeing and stream fishing. Imagine the memories you and your family and friends could make all year long on your own private sand bar beach. A very affordable all-season memory factory that won't last long.
