Whitetail Properties Real Estate is proud to present one of the most advanced hunting farms we’ve ever seen in Iowa. It’s located in Zone 8, which is much more favorable than other zones for hunting as a non-resident. This QDMA Legacy Land-certified property has every feature to grow mature whitetails. It’s gifted with natural springs, hardwood timber, cropland, thick overgrown pasture, river bottom, big ridges, cedar thickets, and rock outcroppings. Building from this solid foundation, the seller has poured his heart and soul into creating the ultimate whitetail hunting experience. This habitat masterpiece includes architected food plots, native grass establishment, bedding area enhancement, timber stand improvement, mast-producing tree plantings, waterholes, and Giant Miscanthus screens that hide the entrance to strategic hunting blinds.
Access is through a gated entrance on a dead-end road. An improved rock driveway leads to three barns that store machinery and a building site. Fiber optic cable on the road will deliver high-speed internet if you desire to connect. This ideal building site would make a great place for a cabin, barn dominium, or home without affecting the hunting quality. Crop acres roll across the southeast region of the northwest bottom, while acres from the Conservation Reserve Program are scattered across. See the bullets below for details on the income acres.
A large east/west ridge with hardwoods and cedar thickets is northwest of the buildings. It has had professional cutting in key areas to enhance the daytime browse and bedding security, which helps hold deer on the farm. The property has had numerous consultants provide management plans to enhance the forest and wildlife habitat. Some of these plans are available by contacting the listing agent. Implementation of these plans and establishing a local neighborhood cooperative that creates a shoot/pass list were key benchmarks as the farm became QDMA Legacy Lands certified. This certification only recognizes properties if they exemplify the highest level of land protection, conservation, stewardship, and commitment to preserving our hunting heritage. The owner has spared no expense in transforming this property into a whitetail hunting paradise that will produce the kind of bucks that have made Iowa famous. Undoubtedly, some of the most impressive bucks in the country have come from this driftless region of eastern Iowa.
Finally, the pure beauty of this farm is something to behold. You’ve got to see it to appreciate how scenic it truly is. I’ve run out of words trying to describe how awesome this farm is. If you’ve been looking for a premium hunting property that generates income; in an area of Iowa considered more advantageous to the non-resident landowner, contact the listing agent Ben Harshyne to schedule a private tour.
