35th Street, Lot#WP001Morning Sun, IA 52640Louisa CountyGet Directions
This beautiful wildlife oasis in southern Louisa County offers hardwood timber, winding creek bottom, tree plantings, open acres for food plots, and much more. Under the same ownership since 1943, this property has been gently cared for and managed with wildlife and wild landscapes in mind.
Located just east of Morning Sun, directly south of Wapello, and just a mile off Highway 61, the dead-end access allows for a secluded feel while still being easily accessible.
Two active springs arise from the hillsides on the farm; the current owner mentioned how they haven't stopped running the entire time he's owned the property. Having cold, clear water year-round is crucial to a wildlife paradise. This valley offers amazing cover for the neighboring wildlife along with the water. It is a sanctuary for deer, especially in the fall and winter, as they transition from the nearby crop fields.
Whitetail deer, Eastern wild turkeys, coyotes, bobcats, upland birds, pheasants, and rabbits all call this 81 acres home, as it serves as a paradise for the local wildlife. The majority of the property is in the forest reserve, which is property tax-free, and is maintained by ensuring 200 trees per acre are growing across the farm.
The forest resource is impressive, with White Oak, Red Oak, Hickory, Hedge, and Cedar spread across the farm. A small tree planting on the northeast corner also features Oak and Pine trees. Multiple ridges on the west side are excellent deer bedding areas, and the terrain diversity allows for treestand locations for multiple wind directions.
This 81-acre is one of the more unique properties I’ve been on recently; with the winding spring-fed creek bottom, open acres, thick timber, and seclusion, this would make for an incredible property to include in your journey.
