Scenic Hunting Farm With Cabin In Southeast IA Near Ottumwa



Incredibly scenic property with a brand new secluded cabin that is nice enough to call home! This property is a proven producer of big bucks and one of the main reasons is a 400-acre no hunting refuge bordering the north boundary. See details about this refuge below and check out all the harvest and trail cam pics! The cabin was built in 2018. It has two bedrooms, a loft upstairs, a great room open to the kitchen, one full bathroom with laundry, and a nice garage for storing equipment. There are around 34 open acres that are currently in hay. There is paved road access on the entire south side of the property and an easement down the neighbor’s driveway that allows easy access to cabin and fields. This property borders Pioneer Ridge Nature area which is approximately 1000 acres. This gives the owner of this farm easy access to additional hunting land, hiking trails, etc. There is one small pond on the property north of the cabin. Call listing agent with questions or to schedule a showing.

Property Details

  • Located in on the Davis/Wapello County line about 10 minutes south of Ottumwa
  • Proven history of big bucks - see the harvest and trail cam pics
  • Very nice cabin built in 2018 is totally secluded and nice enough to call home
  • The cabin has 2 bedrooms and a loft above, great room open to the kitchen, full bath with laundry, and a garage for equipment storage
  • The cabin is finished very nicely with high end cabinets, beautiful live edge concrete countertops, and stained car siding on all the walls and ceilings
  • The cabin appliances and furniture will stay
  • For reference, the owners spent approximately $165,000 building the cabin and running utilities to it
  • Diverse property with secluded tillable fields, oak timber, and nice topography
  • Approximately 34 open acres that have been farmed and hayed in the past and are currently in hay but the owners are considering cash renting for crops in 2020
  • The average CSR2 of these acres is 33.6 but 15 acres or so on the ridge tops have a CSR2 in the upper 50’s
  • Managed for over 10 years and a proven producer of big bucks; check out the trail cam and harvest pics
  • The trailcam pictures and bucks all came from this farm and the 77 acres to the east - there's no reason this property won’t continue to produce these kind of bucks in the future
  • Excellent food plot locations; my favorite is on the north end bordering the 400-acre no hunting refuge
  • 2 Banks tower blinds come with the property
  • The property has paved road access on the south side, access to the cabin and property is via the neighbor’s driveway (there is a deeded easement for the use of this driveway)
  • One of the reasons this property has produced so many big bucks is that it's bordered by the Pioneer Ridge Nature Area. This property is approximately 1000 acres with around 400 of it being a no hunting refuge. This 400 acre refuge borders the entire north boundary of the 93 acres and offers the perfect santuary for bucks to grow old. The remainder of the nature area is open to public hunting.
  • Pioneer Ridge Nature Area is owned by the Wapello County Conservation Board and offers over 10 miles of hiking trails, camping, cabins, restrooms, and shelters. You can literally walk right onto this land from this farm
  • One small pond is on the property that is an older pond and looks too shallow for fish
  • There are a couple of places that look like they would be ideal for building additional ponds in the draws on either side of the cabin
  • The taxes last year were in the $500 range but the cabin hasn’t been assessed yet so future taxes will definitely be higher
