Here is a chance to own your own hunting or recreational farm at a great price. The property will be going into the WRP Program this year, where you will be able to enjoy the fruits of someone else’s labor. Starting 1 June, the seller will be planting two-hundred acres in trees, and the balance will be left to naturally occurring succession. The tree species to be planted consist of 30,500 Pin Oaks, 19,000 Cypress, 15,00 Pecans, 10,000 Persimmons, 9,700 Bur Oaks, and 2,800 Swamp White Oaks. With the implementation of the WRP and the return of native plants, there is no doubt the results will be a vastly improved habitat, provide better food, security, and bedding, which will attract those mature river-bottom bucks to this farm. Once some of these trees start producing nuts and persimmons, you will have a smorgasbord for the deer to choose from. Can you imagine having 10,000 persimmon trees, the candy to deer, producing persimmons in about 5 to 7 years? With all these trees being planted, you will surely have future income-producing trees, understanding this will be down the road 25 to 30 years, but income, nonetheless. Although oaks are known to be slow-growers, some of your softwoods, such as Sycamore and Silver Maple, will only take 3-5 years to begin offering a very noticeable woodsy look and feel. If you enjoy fishing, the Wabash River borders the entire east side of the farm. Bordering the west side, you have the Embarras River Bottoms State Habitat Area, consisting of approximately 1,880 acres that you can also access and hunt. There will be an easement that runs along the Allison Canal from the county road to the property bordering the southwest corner. This landowner only needs this access to get to his proposed wells. The canal should also provide you with unlimited opportunities for waterfowl hunting. There is a lot to package with this, and the opportunities here are unlimited, especially at this price point. Even if you’re just looking for a property to enjoy for camping or ATV riding with your family, this farm has it. ****This is everything north of Billett Ln****
