Non-resident hunters, a rare opportunity awaits! Imagine glassing giant bucks and bull elk from the back deck of your dream farm in southern Iowa. Currently a high fence hunting preserve, this allows the coveted ability to own an Iowa property and hunt any or all seasons every year! Here, you can hunt with any weapon, not be subject to Iowa DNR bag limits, and not go through the preference point lottery system for tags.
This majestic property has mature timber, rolling terrain, quality farmland, and a top-end lodge. Already filled with excellent genetics, you can deploy a precise herd management plan–culling inferior bucks, passing superior young ones–without being at the mercy of your neighboring landowners.
The lodge–which is certainly nice enough to be used as a residence–has four bedrooms/2.5 bathrooms, a high-end kitchen, a large living room, and a den that could be a 5th bedroom. A separate building next door has a bar and shooting simulator. These amenities are secluded in an incredibly scenic setting, offering exclusive privacy. Our favorite feature is the wraparound deck overlooking a huge bottom field constantly crawling with the whitetails and elk that live on the preserve. Relaxing in the hot tub while watching the wildlife enhances the experience that this property can provide.
The composition of the farm creates an excellent blend of habitat, including quality tillable farmland, creek bottoms, two ponds, secluded fields for smaller food plots, native grasses, wetlands, draws, and large sections of timber. A nice trail follows the entire interior perimeter, so you can easily check the fence with a UTV. The farm also has an elaborate internal trail network, which is great for riding, hiking, and accessing stands. You can walk out from the lodge, hike around the property, and photograph wildlife any time! Approximately 70 acres are outside the fence if you desire fair chase hunting.
The next owner will continue to utilize the property as a guided outfitting business or treat it as a top-shelf private hunting property. If you desire to convert into a fair chase by removing some or all of the fence, this could be done by fulfilling certain requirements from the Iowa DNR.
Call the listing agent for details on what the hunting preserve means for the new owner or to schedule a tour of this amazing offering in southeast Iowa!
