Big Buck Timber In East Central Indiana


With over 150 acres of big timber and a great complement of mixed brush and cedar covered openings, this property is a big buck producing powerhouse. The frontage on Duck Creek Road has an older unoccupied 2500 square foot home over a basement that could be a restoration project, or tear it down and build a new hunt camp or full-time residence on the one-acre improved lot in a beautiful setting. There is a rock-bottom road that winds up to the top of the ridges behind the house and gets you access to the majority of the timber including the cedar thickets and overgrown fields. A small dozer could easily convert much of this area into open ground for planting crops or food plots. The buck sign is everywhere with giant rubs and scrapes still evident from the past rut. The turkey numbers are super strong here too and they no doubt will be frequenting the old pasture edges gobbling and strutting in the spring. There is marketable timber here too and some can be harvested immediately and a long term sustainable harvest is very possible. The timber has not been harvested in over 20 years. There is adjoining acreage that can also be purchased to put together a much larger farm for managing and hunting.  Small game abounds too with squirrels and rabbits in good numbers. Morel mushrooms are known to grow well here too offering springtime bonuses. A must see. Shown by appointment only.
