Hardwood Timber, CRP Income, Solid Hunting In Southwest Illinois


Located at the end of Cowboy Lane, a beautiful private and paved drive leads you to this very nice primarily hardwood timber farm. The property consists of approximately 154 acres of mature, marketable, hardwood timber, 25 acres enrolled in CRP and an additional 1-acre building site right at the end of the gated and picturesque lane. Much of the timber stand is mature and offers an immediate harvest if desired. The ridge top roads through the farm are manicured and very easy to travel. There is plenty of deer sign throughout and the owner has harvested numerous mature bucks over the years. Take a look at all the deer that were standing in the field when I was finishing my photography the evening I was there. If you are looking for a personal recreational hunting farm, a beautiful place to build your dream home, or a good timberland investment then you will want to make an appointment to schedule your private tour.
