If you like dense cover then this is the farm for you. CRP fields in prairie grass and tree plantings make this farm a big buck jungle. Lots of edge habitat of bedding cover and lots of pinch points to intercept these wary old bucks. Several established food plots help control deer movement. Over ½ mile of Hurricane Creek bottom bi-sect this farm and it makes a great travel corridor and rut funnel for bucks checking doe groups. The property is surrounded by orchards which provide great additional food sources. A secluded lane acts as the entrance to this farm and brings you to a 1.5 acre stocked lake has potential for a nice homesite. A well maintained interior road system works great for stand access by foot or electric vehicle. Several great deer have been taken from this farm over the years and the landowner is always got his sights on at least one gross booner per year. It has been managed for a great diversity of wildlife with upland birds, turkeys, waterfowl, deer and small game for over 20 years. Fantastic hunting within a short drive of several metropolitan areas make this farm super attractive. Less than an hour from St. Louis and 40 minutes from Springfield. Carlinville is only 2.5 miles away and it offers all of the amenities (restaurants, hotels, Wal Mart, etc). If you are looking for a turn-key farm with a long standing management plan then you need to take a serious look at this farm.
