This mile-and-a-half wide farm between Mount Pleasant and Fairfield generates over $99,000 annual income and has the ideal layout for growing, holding, and hunting mature bucks. The size and structure allow you to have large sanctuaries, stand sites for all wind directions, huge south-facing bedding areas, and strategic food plots. A property with all of these components allows you to grow, hold, and manage the deer herd to maximize its trophy potential.
Three hundred seventy-six acres were strategically enrolled into the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) in 2020. The native grasses and forbs provide excellent habitat for deer, pheasants, quail, turkeys, and other wildlife. All of the CRP fields were window-framed with 30-foot wide firebreaks. Firebreaks are clover, alfalfa, and grasses - which make a beautiful edge for the native grass fields but also provide a safety barrier for burning and food for the wildlife. An additional 167 tillable acres were rented for $200/acre this year.
This is a top-shelf bowhunting farm because of its layout. Look at the draws, funnels, and travel corridors between big bedding areas! It’s also a great late-season property with large sanctuaries and numerous secluded areas for late-season grain plots.
Six mature bucks, at least 5.5 years old, were taken in the past five years. The listing agent Ben Harshyne has tagged his largest whitetails from this farm, and hunted a huge non-typical in 2020. All of the mature buck history was before the large CRP conversion. With three times the cover and four years of management, this farm will get even better in mature buck production.
On the east side is a gorgeous building site that would be accessed from the blacktop road, which overlooks the farm’s largest pond. Imagine building a home overlooking your dream farm and being able to watch all of the wildlife each evening! You can see the rolling hills of farmland that makes southern Iowa so beautiful.
If you’d like to own a property that produces significant income but also offers tremendous hunting, this may be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. Call southeast Iowa Land Specialists Ben Harshyne and Rich Baugh to schedule a private showing.
