Outstanding Hunting And Investment Property In Southeast Iowa

Trailcam

Description

Beautiful farm! This is property is growing and holding some incredible bucks! Check out the recent trail cam pics It is also currently producing approximately $30,000 of annual income (see income breakdown below). I don’t know of another property that has so many acres of thick cover, much of which is in the riparian buffer tree CRP program and is income producing. This CRP is a mixture of cedars, pines, and hardwoods and is some of the best thermal cover you’ll ever find. The late season holding capacity of the cover on this property is second to none. A large majority of this cover is located right in the center of the farm, so keeping deer within the boundaries during shotgun and late season will be very possible with strategically located food plots. This is a big deal when it comes to getting bucks to older age classes. In addition to the incredible holding capacity of the property, a big bonus is that approximately 295 acres of the property are income producing. There is great access throughout the property. The owners have built roads along the south side of the property and have cleared and planted numerous food plots along the road system. There is a nice 30 x 60 pole barn built in 2012 with water and electric run to it on the north side of the property. Seller recently poured a new concrete floor and has a bedroom, bathroom, and mudroom framed in that could easily be finished! There are also several unreal building sites for a house or cabin that would provide great views of the property and food plots. There is nothing like watching your property out your back window with a spotting scope! If you’re looking for a large manageable hunting and income producing property that’s got the potential to grow and hold giant bucks and has great building sites, you need to check this farm out.
