Hunting Property Bordered On Three Sides By Shawnee National Forest

Description

This is an excellent hunting tract with a great mix of habitat! The farm has all the key ingredients needed to grow hold and harvest mature whitetails. There are 41.5+/- acres of gently rolling pasture field with numerous pockets and corners that are ideal food plot locations. There are several fingers of timber/brush that lead out into the fields creating great travel corridors and pinch points that are ideal ambush sites. Historically the pasture fields have been used for hay production, but could easily be converted to tillable ground to provide a good source of income and an ample supply of highly nutritious deer food. There is approximately 10+/- acres of thick bedding/sanctuary habitat spread throughout the farm. The majority of the thick brush is located on the south end of the farm with the rest being contained in the fingers that protrude out into the pasture. This is the ideal scenario for creating food plots tucked close to bedding in order to lure mature bucks out of the cover before dark. The farm has an ample supply of water for wildlife provided by 2 ponds located within the pasture fields and a creek within the timber. There is approximately 1/4th mile of road frontage on the west side of the property with multiple entrance points for accessing favored stand locations with minimal disturbance. The farm is bordered on the North, East and West sides by the Shawnee National Forest. This vast expanse of timbered ridges and hollows provides plenty more ground to hunt right off the property.
