This is one of the most impressive hunting farms we’ve represented in Eastern Iowa. One hour from the Quad Cities and located in Zone 8, this area is much more favorable than other zones for hunting as a nonresident. A QDMA Legacy Land-certified property, the farm has every feature you need to grow mature whitetails. It has natural springs, hardwood timber, cropland, thick overgrown pasture, river bottom, big ridges, cedar thickets, and rock outcroppings. Building from this solid foundation, it was architected to create the ultimate whitetail hunting experience. This habitat masterpiece includes food plots, tall native grass, bedding area enhancement, timber stand improvement, fruit 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, barndominium, 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. The total income in 2024 will be just over $39,000.
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. Numerous consultants have provided management plans to enhance the forest and wildlife habitat at the property. Implementing these plans and establishing a local neighborhood cooperative that creates a shoot/pass list was a key benchmark 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. No expense was spared in transforming this property into a whitetail hunting paradise that grows the kind of bucks that make 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 is truly. I’ve run out of words to describe how awesome this farm is. Land management is available for hire on this property. If you’ve been looking for a premium hunting property that generates income in an area of Iowa considered more advantageous to the nonresident landowner, contact the listing agent with Whitetail Properties Real Estate, Ben Harshyne, to schedule a private tour.
