This property lies between Mount Pleasant and Lockridge, Iowa, in an area known for world-class whitetails. Over 3,000 acres of large, low-pressure farms all around this property are managed explicitly for top-end bucks. This particular property directly connects to over 1,000 acres of intensely managed farms. We have owned and managed farms in this neighborhood since 2007 and have seen firsthand the trophy deer from this neighborhood. A giant non-typical that scored 239 5/8” was taken in the field on the south end of this property!
In addition to the outdoor benefits, this land generates $9,059/year from the Conservation Reserve Program, which incentives the landowner to convert farmland into wildlife habitat in exchange for an annual payment. It has over a quarter mile of Skunk River frontage on the east side and a mile and a half of Cedar Creek frontage, allowing excellent fishing access and places to launch a canoe.
The owner made three clearings for food plots, and the tall native grasses on the south end provide great habitat for turkey, pheasant, quail, waterfowl, small game, and predators. Deer will also bed in the grasses and use it to travel safely.
The proximity to Mount Pleasant and the history of high-quality hunting make owning land in this area highly desirable. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to acquire this excellent recreational investment property that pays an annual return in a fantastic whitetail neighborhood of southeast Iowa!
