The structure of this farm–and the neighborhood it’s part of–combine into a real estate asset where you can manage and hunt for big whitetails. It’s located in Zone 8, which has more favorable nonresident draw odds than others. Demanding buyers who have been patiently waiting to own a premium Iowa hunting farm will appreciate the composition of secluded fields, bedding areas, dead-end access, and management-minded neighbors. A fantastic layout will appeal to many because it checks nearly every box for a management-capable hunting property.
The western border is a towering bluff overlooking the Maquoketa River valley and is essentially a natural fence that keeps the majority of deer on your side of the river. One of the best funnels is on the bench of this bluff. It would feel incredible to reflect on owning this property; while you’re perched next to a beaten deer trail with such a rare and beautiful view!
A landscaped food plot dialed in on a key area also features Apple and Pear trees. This plot is located at the base of an interior ridge in the middle of the farm and will be a legendary site to tag a pre-rut buck or springtime gobbler. For mature buck opportunities every fall, you can rely on a plot like this. Three tower blinds are included in the offering.
Two tillable fields separate bedding areas on the farm. Each field has coves that could become nice food plot areas. You could keep each field in cash-rent acres or convert a portion into food sources for the wildlife. Add screening cover like Miscanthus, Switchgrass, or trees, and you can create several plots for stealth hunting.
This farm has been an integral portion of a formal Quality Deer Management co-op, where several adjacent landowners work together to establish guidelines for growing 5.5+-year-old bucks. According to the DNR draw odds, you would likely be able to hunt it yearly in late-season muzzleloader or every two or three years for bow season as a nonresident!
Between the river bluff and the neighboring management practices - this farm represents a premium real estate asset that allows you to have loads of fun hunting big deer and turkeys. Contact the listing agent Ben Harshyne to schedule a private tour of this premium hunting property in Iowa that is considered more advantageous to the nonresident landowner.
