Scenic Property With Whitetail History And Building Potential



This scenic property has everything needed to grow and hold big whitetails and also has an awesome building site that is less than 100 yards off a paved road! With approximately 200 acres of mature timber and brush, this farm has the ability to hold lots of deer and the heavy sign is proof that there are good deer numbers now. There are approximately 43 acres of quality tillable with an average CSR2 of 54.4. One of the fields is totally secluded and offers as good of a late-season food plot location as you’ll find. The owners have been leaving several acres of standing crops in this field for years so the deer pile into this property late season.  For the last 14 years, the property has only been bow hunted when the owner has drawn a tag. No more than one mature buck has been taken any given year so the age structure on this property should be incredible. The owners have put in a very nice trail system to access stand locations in the timbered sections of the property. There are 3 different creeks on the property, 2 of which emerge on the south side in a big bottom. This area should be a major travel corridor for rutting bucks. This property is in an area close to Fairfield that is known for producing big whitetails and it’s convenient to Iowa City and Cedar Rapids compared to most southern IA farms. There are access points from the NE corner via gravel road, the west side via a level B road, and an easement, and the SW side has access off a paved road with a very short gravel drive to the corner of the property. There is an excellent building site in the SW corner with utilities available. Call Rich with questions or to schedule a showing.

  • Several acres of standing corn or beans have been left every year in the center field so the deer are trained to winter on this property. With around 200 acres of timber on this property, it will be easy to hold deer on this farm late season with good food sources. I can show you where to leave the food and the late season hunting will be a slam dunk
