Hunting And Recreation Property with Access To River


Have you ever hunted pheasants or ducks in Nebraska or bears in upper Michigan? Maybe you have spent some time walking the prairies of Kansas. This completely unique piece of land offers everything needed to make you think you are spending time in each of these landscapes. The south side of this property is home to approximately 30 acres of grasslands that are surrounded by everything from wooded fence rows to large blocks of timber. This area brings the potential to develop scrap and rub lines to a whole new level. Food plot opportunities are endless on this part of the land. Working north you will encounter an old lakebed left behind from the coal mine. Still holding water much of the year and being surrounded by phragmites and cattails this is an amazing habitat for the central region of the property. Crossing the creek that feeds into the South Fork of the Sangamon River you find yourself in a landscape that could rival much of Nebraska and Michigan. You will find areas of marshy swamps full of bull rush and smartweed and small ponds that will all come to life with the spring rains and then be overtaken by vegetation as they dry later into the summer. These areas become a lifeblood of food and shelter for deer and upland birds. Mixed into this area are food plots surrounded by timber and random parcels of brush. Working towards the river a more consistent forested area dominates the land. Natural terraces and sloughs make perfect travel corridor characteristics that big bucks love to utilize.  This property has been altered by man, but nature has returned to make something quite unique for us to once again enjoy.
