Farm With House Boasts Big Buck History In Southern IL

Description

Big buck enthusiasts, this farm has a strong history of drop tine genetics! The harvest photo you see was provided by the current owner. It was harvested many years ago, but if you look at the 2016 trail camera pictures from my camera, you will notice those same genetics still exist today. What I think makes this farm so unique is the vast amount of public land in the area that is virtually unhuntable. There are multiple areas of the adjoining public land that are very hard to get to for hunters. This provides an enormous sanctuary for the local deer herd. And if the big bucks are hiding back in the timber, this farm is one of the first they have to cross in order to get to big crop fields. Another thing that I really like about this farm is that it has a nice home and multiple outbuildings tucked ¼ mile off the road. You can use the house to stay in while you’re visiting the area, and then rent the grain bins and equipment storage for additional cash. Two ponds on the property offer a great place to fish in the afternoons when you want to relax. A large block of timber sits across the railroad tracks. The railroad company is allowing the current tenant to cross using an ATV. This offers you access directly to the Millstone Bluff Archaeological Site, an area owned by the Shawnee National Forest. If you’ve been waiting on a great investment with world-class genetics, then give me a call today so that we can take a look.
