Hunting And CRP Farm With Good ROI Near Lake Thunderbird


If you’ve been looking for a spectacular hunting farm with a great return on investment, then you need to take a look at this property just outside of Lake Thunderbird! Being next to Lake Thunderbird, there is very limited hunting surrounding this property. Much of the timber surrounding the lake acts as a sanctuary for wildlife. With 34.1 acres of CRP, this property is bringing in $8,657 each year. This is just over $253 per acre in annual income. At the current asking price, that is approximately a 2.9% return on investment. There is a lot of mature timber on the property with many younger trees as well. Much of the timber consists of oak and maple trees with some hickory. Some of the timber could be cut to thin the canopy and aid in increased habitat and cover for wildlife. In the middle of the timber is a half-acre pond which would give you the opportunity to shoot early season ducks as well as providing a water source for wildlife. While first viewing the property, I saw six different tom turkeys, one of which had the thickest beard I have seen on a turkey! Three of the toms had beards dragging on the ground. If you are interested in the amenities that Lake Thunderbird Association offers, there is an adjacent lot which could be purchased in addition to this property. If you are interested in taking a look, give me a call to schedule your private showing!
