Optimal Hunting Habitat In Southern IL


PRICE REDUCED!! Here’s an excellent big buck tract with a great mix of habitat & topography that is laid out to hunt! The farm has approximately 10+/- acres of open field with a gently rolling topography and over 1 mile of edge! The fields are laid out with several pockets and corners that would make ideal food plot locations. A large 1.53+/- pond sits on the north-east side of the farm. The pond is well-manicured and is stocked with bass, crappie, catfish, and bluegill making it an ideal location to take kids fishing. There is also a spring fed creek that meanders through the entire property so you have live running water year-round. The farm has plenty of thick bedding/sanctuary cover spread throughout the timbered area of the property.  The southern half of the farm is predominantly timbered ridges and hollows. Timber was appraised in June 2017 for $112,956 total value. The forester recommends a cut harvesting 1/3 of the merchantable timber, offering the new owner an immediate return of $37,650. This timbered area has a slightly steeper topography that has created numerous well-worn travel corridors throughout the timber. It has a good stand of softwoods & mast producing hardwoods that provide plenty of browse during the winter months. Approximately 1.82+/- acres of Kays Lake is located within the boundaries of the farm. This portion of Kays Lake has created an excellent funnel for ambushing deer as they travel around the lake. There is a great trail system that runs throughout the property allowing for easy access to favored stand locations anywhere on the farm. There is very little road frontage on the property. This keeps the wildlife from being disturbed and aids in security. If you’re looking to build and be able to head out the back door to hunt, there are several ideal building sites on the property and water and electric is available at the road. If you’re looking for a stellar hunting tract with the added bonus of some scenic building sites, give us a call today and schedule your private tour!
