Diverse Hunting Farm Nestled In The Shawnee National Forest


Situated on a quiet country road just outside of Elizabethtown is a quaint little hunting farm. What I really like about this property is the fact that the owner has done all of the work, you just need to show up and hunt. There is an impressive trail system through the entire farm, large enough to drive a jeep. There are two newly established food plots down in the creek bottoms where the soil is moist and rich. The owner was kind enough to install a brand new Banks Hunting blind, so the new owner can walk right in and hunt. As you enter off the gravel road you will immediately cross Goose Creek. This appears to be a spring-fed creek because there is always fresh water trickling through the rocks. Just beyond the creek are the two smaller food plots and the hunting blind. This is a good area for deer and turkey hunting because it is accessible from the county road in multiple places, and you don’t have to stomp through the entire property. Just beyond the food plots, you’ll notice the topography starts to change and you gain elevation. It has been over a decade since the timber was last harvested so the draws are really thick. As you plateau on the ridges, you will find a beautiful stand of white oaks and hickory trees. This provides adequate food for the wildlife as well as a solid investment option for timber harvest down the road. There is a lot to like about this quaint little hunting farm. If you are looking for an affordable farm, turn-key and ready to hunt, priced under the market value then give me a call. This one won’t last!
