Diverse Hunting Property With Building Sites In Southeast Iowa



This is a beautiful property with a mixture of hardwood timber, brushy thickets, and creek bottoms. The terrain is unreal with two high ridges, numerous points off these ridges, and several drainages. Multiple south facing ridges provide lots of late season bedding areas! There is a field that is approximately 3.5 acres on the west side of the property that would make a great food plot and/or a building site for a home or cabin. This property is currently part of a 144-acre high fence enclosure. One other owner has 50 acres inside this fence. There are approximately 3 acres outside the fence on the east end in the creek bottom. The new owner of this property will get to choose whether or not to keep this as a high fence operation or to take sections of the fence out and let it be a free range property. See more details below on what this would mean from a hunting standpoint. Financing pre-approval will be requested before showing this property. Call me with questions or to schedule a private showing. 

Property Details

  • Located between New London and Lowell less than a ¼ mile off a hard surface road
  • Very diverse property offering excellent whitetail and turkey hunting
  • Could be kept as a high fence operation or converted to a free range property with some fence removal
  • A 5-acre field on the west side is perfect for a food plot and/or a home or cabin site and it is less than ¼ off the paved road
  • Approximately 3 acres of the property on the far east side is outside the high fence across the creek and would provide free range hunting if the high fence operation was kept in place. There is an opportunity to plant a food plot in this area that would be around a ½ acre
  • This property is a proven producer of big bucks and was part of a larger 511 acre high fence operation. There are great genetics inside the fence and outside as well. See the trail camera pictures from last year of some of the bucks that are currently inside. There are also trail camera pictures from bucks on the 3 acres outside the fence. Trail cam pics of bucks outside the enclosure are labeled “outside”. Approximately 20 does and 8 bucks were inside the fence last year
  • This 94 acres is part of a 144-acre high fenced area that is currently a licensed hunting preserve. This means it does not have the normal state hunting regulations and can be hunted anytime with any weapon by residents or non-residents. So this is an unique opportunity for a non-resident to own a property that wouldn’t be subject to the normal non-resident lottery system. It can remain a licensed preserve if the buyer wishes. If not, the seller will de-populate the deer that are in the enclosure and open the fence up in areas to allow deer from the surrounding neighborhood populate the property. Call for details on the licensed preserve
  • This property appears to be very well suited for building ponds as there are several different drainages that should work for smaller ponds and the main drainage looks like it would be perfect for a large pond
  • Several nice building sites with utilities available
  • Annual taxes are estimated to be around $600 but this property hasn’t been assessed individually yet so this is just an estimate
  • Mature timber with marketable walnut, red oak, white oak
