Here is an excellent opportunity to own a quality hunting farm in northeast Illinois. Located on the county’s southeastern edge, this well-diversified property has a nice balance of tillable, timber and grassland. Significant planning, cost and effort made this a classic, turn-key hunting property loaded with deer and turkeys. Pull into the farm on the southwest corner of the property, where you’ll find a gated entrance leading down an established road system that allows for good access into the property for hunting and maintenance. Strategic planting of over 6,000 pine trees and strips of switchgrass, native grass and clover set up ideal transitional habit which wraps around mature hardwoods throughout the farm. With predominantly sandy soil, the tillable fields are annually planted in corn with travel corridors cut through them. This allows for undetected entry and exit from tree stand locations and provides options for travel depending on wind conditions. During the fall harvest, select field edges of corn are intentionally left to stand, creating predictable travel destinations for game and providing food and cover for survival over the winter months. Inside the corn belt, internal food plots are well established, including a variety of brassica, clover, and radishes. A watering hole was created amongst the northern field, which receives frequent use and is conveniently positioned in front of a box blind. As a result of these improvements, this particular farm has a tremendous history of deer and turkey hunting. Described as a “top producer” for turkey, hunters are successful on big toms year after year. The farm holds bucks of various age and antler classes with outstanding genetics. Land practices put in place on this tract have allowed bucks to reach their full potential, as is evident in trail cam pictures, including at least one 190-inch class buck. This farm is truly special, and a must-see for any serious hunter looking for a place to call their own.
