South Central IL Hunting Property With Impressive Habitat



This is definitely one of the best properties as far as habitat and ingredients for growing huge bucks. To the north is 1,000 acres all under one owner that doesn’t allow hunting. It is a mix of timber (300-400 acres), and tillable (600-700 acres). Bordering on the east of the property is about 60 acres that were clear cut years ago and now is grown up into 10-foot trees and brush which is super thick. Deer Creek rolls through the northern portion of the timber on this tract which serves as a natural funnel through the heart of this property. During the rut, the bucks come off of the big no hunting timber and cruise this creek bottom. Many strategic stands await! The owner made a couple of clear cuts a few years back and allowed it to grow up super thick as well. In between that thick cover and a 2.5-acre pond, he has cleared and plants a large food plot there. There is a 13-acre field that is cut for hay for the two horses that the owner has. This field has a thick grove of maple trees cutting through the middle that breaks the field partially in half. This would be an awesome spot for one or two large food plots, or this could be easily turned in tillable, and cash rented. To the south is an 80-acre timber tract that also does not allow hunting. Tillable banks either side of this piece wedging it squarely in the middle of no hunting, thick cover, timber, and year around water. The 2003 2,500 sq. ft. 4 bed, 2 bath modular home has a new metal roof that will last a LONG time. Despite being at the dead end of a county road, this house has city water. There is a gas fireplace, brand new wood laminate flooring, central air, and all appliances stay with the house. This home could easily serve as your permanent residence or it would make an excellent deer cabin hunt camp. There is also a new 1,200 sq. ft. metal shed for storing your car and truck and 4-wheelers and tractors. Give the listing agents a call today to check this out!
