Great Hunting Near Rend Lake


This property with access from a locked gate off of Freeman Road was once part of a coal mining operation in this area. The majority of the property consists of a gob pile which consists of approximately 12 million ton of waste coal covered by 4 ft. of topsoil with one 5 acre pond. There is a chance that as technology improves this waste coal could be reclaimed in the future with potential future income opportunities. Over the last 40 plus years, the property has developed into a great habitat for the wildlife in the area and beautiful level fields on the top levels. I jumped numerous deer while touring the property, and there is plenty of wildlife sign everywhere. Along with great deer and turkey hunting opportunities the property also offers fabulous views in every direction. It’s a perfect place to enjoy a sunset or a sunrise. The upper fields are very nice and offer up to 60 acres for hay production or food plots. If you are looking for your own personal hunting and recreational property then you should check this offering out. Call today to schedule your own private tour.
