Timber Tract With Cabin And Excellent Hunting In West Central IL



PRICE REDUCED!! Located between La Harpe and Fountain Green is this nearly all timber tract with a lot of potential. Access off the blacktop is extremely good with two separate locations to enter the property. The south entrance is the main entrance with a path leading you to the building and open area. This area is great for camping during the spring and summer months and also makes for a great deer camp. The building is finished in a rustic finish and has been utilized as a cabin during the fall hunting season and is fully insulated and is a unique building. Once you head west from this area, you will find a walking path that leads you around the entire property. Portions of this path used to used for machinery and could easily be opened back up to allow access around the property with an ATV or tractor. The middle of this property, which was planted in trees many years ago, is now a large sanctuary for deer with trails leading into an out of this area all around it. La Harpe Creek, which is a branch of the Lamoine River, runs through the property and provides a great water source in addition to acting as a natural travel corridor for deer. The particular property sits between two large blocks of timber to the northeast and southwest. There is a specific spot on the southwest portion of the property where the neighbor's pasture and the creek pinches down forcing deer to cross in a specific area and would make for a great stand location. There are also several acres located on the south side of the creek. Provided the water is low enough, the creek bed serves as a great access point to be able to slip into and out of the back of the property without being detected. Overall this is an excellent hunting farm with a lot of potential for both deer and turkeys. If you are in the market for a quality and affordable hunting property, give me a call today for more info or to schedule a private showing.
