The Whitetail Properties Southeast Iowa Team is honored to bring to the market this world-class whitetail hunting farm that sits in one of the most desirable trophy-managed neighborhoods in the entire state of Iowa.
Over the past two decades, this farm has produced more than 40 whitetails taken only with traditional archery tackle that scored higher than 150” Pope & Young! That’s an amazing history of giant whitetails and proof of what this neighborhood is capable of. This region likely includes over 10,000 managed acres from Albia to Blakesburg. Just a mile north sits a 3,600 acre privately owned and managed farm, along with dozens of others that are strictly hunted for trophy whitetails. Many 200+ deer have been killed in this immediate area, and it should allow as good of a chance as any in the entire state for a buck to reach full potential.
Once owned by the iconic author and traditional bowhunter, the late Roger Rothhaar; Roger and his family have enjoyed tagging dozens of monarch bucks across the farm’s sprawling landscape. Once you’ve seen all of the harvest and trail camera pictures—and there are over 100 of them—you’ll realize how special this property is. Imagine owning a piece of whitetail history, hunting the same proven stand sites that the Rothhaar family has spent decades fine-tuning!
You can’t truly appreciate this farm without seeing it in person. A high ridge in tillable and food plots serves as the core destination for the deer to feed and interact. The owner describes evening hunts where “the farm comes alive”, with deer crawling out of the deep timber and into the secluded openings. In total there are 151 acres m/l of tillable acres that will give you endless options for a combination of income and food plots. Access is exceptional with gravel road frontage on the west boundary, “class C” dead-end road access from the east, and a recent strategic acquisition that provides access from the far north.
Approximately 442 acres of hardwood timber and overgrown pasture are huge bedding sanctuaries. Strategic ridges had timber stand improvement done to enhance bedding near food plots. The rolling topography offers textbook funnels for adrenaline-charged bow hunts. Late-season hunting will be amazing because of the non-invasive access and huge, centralized destination food plot areas. Entry and exit routes are available for different wind directions, which is key to low-pressure hunting; a vital ingredient to growing and holding mature deer.
There are ideal building sites with utilities along the road on the west side that wouldn’t disturb the hunting and could provide nice views of the fields and food plots. There’s nothing like watching your food plots from your back window with a spotting scope!
