Secluded Hunting Property Connected to Shawnee National Forest

Description

Secluded hunting tract with diverse habitat! This farm adjoins the Shawnee National forest on all sides. This provides plenty of extra acreage to chase mature whitetails throughout the season. The buyer of this farm will receive a free 10-year hunting lease on the adjoining 140+/- acres to the north, which is also owned by the current landowner of this tract. Combine this with the Shawnee National Forest land, and the new landowner can walk off the farm in any direction and continue to hunt! The property has numerous areas that, with a little work, can be opened up and easily turned into food plots. The addition of a couple food plots on the ridge tops would have huge drawing power to pull deer from all over the surrounding timber. Keep these food plots tucked tight to the superb bedding habitat and you’ve got the ideal scenario to continually harvest mature bucks year after year. The timbered ridges have a good stand of softwoods and mast producing hardwoods along with benches, saddles and established travel corridors throughout the topography. Two ponds, feeder streams and a creek provide an ample supply of water for wildlife. If you’re looking for a secluded hunting tract with diverse habitat, give us a call today and schedule your private tour!
