South Central IL Hunting Property With Home Near Salem


This all brick home has a large front and back porch with views of tillable and timber. Much of the house has hardwood floors, and the kitchen has stainless steel appliances that all stay. The kitchen and the den both have access doors that lead to the large back porch. Some updates were done five years ago on the home resulting in a new roof, furnace, and water heater. The average utility bill is $100/month. There is a 50 x 40 metal pole barn with a lean-to great for housing tractors and 4 wheelers. Inside this pole barn is one bed one bath apartment that could be for guests or rented out. There is a smaller second metal shed (approx. 300 sq ft) for tools and smaller equipment. The sellers are huge hunters that take it very seriously. A great trail system of paths and roads throughout the property provide access with any wind. There are 18 stands (lock-ons and ladder stands) and three elevated box blinds enclosed with windows on all sides. County Road 1325E runs all the way to the property’s northwest corner. All of these harvest pics and trail cam pics are taken from this property; be sure to check them out! Several food plot locations are cleared and have stands on them. The largest food plot has an 8’ deep pond on it that has recently been tilled and planted around. Many chestnut trees have been planted throughout the property and are protected with wire around them. There is also a creek that runs by one side of the property that has many deep crossing trails. With the surrounding tillable, the thickness of the core of this property and the pond and creek, this tract has everything needed to hold and grow big bucks. The southwest corner of the timber has a great funnel leading to and from the tillable. The property is currently enrolled in a forestry program that helps to reduce taxes. Seller does have mineral rights that will convey. Call one of the listing agents today to take a look and lock this down before deer season!
