I’ve mapped thousands of properties in my career with HUNTERRA Maps, and this farm has to rank up with one of the absolute best I’ve ever seen for intercepting bucks with archery tackle. The key to bowhunting is to hunt where bucks like to travel without them knowing you’re there. Brushy fence lines, timber thickets, winding drainages, and tall native grasses combine into what I believe is truly a one-of-a-kind whitetail layout. This farm is the main travel route between a highly managed neighborhood to the south and the well-known Cedar Creek valley. The owner, who just started bowhunting, harvested a 194” buck on his first sit last season! It generates $9,361/year from the Conservation Reserve Program.
Strategic locations for stealthy entry and exit will put you in the captain's chair of major travel routes during the rut. I can work with you to identify them for specific wind directions. With this property being surrounded by large ag fields to the south, west, and east - you can expect the deer to use this property for bedding and travel routes between neighboring properties. Hunt it smart, and you’ll look forward to some of the best whitetail hunting you could imagine in southeast Iowa.
Don’t underestimate how good late muzzleloader season could be as well. The cover is here, and if you add strategic food plots, you’ll have a full season of top-shelf action. One thing that struck me is the amount of early and middle-aged Walnut trees on this property. Someone will enjoy a significant payout for these trees in the distant future. This is a key source of future equity, in addition to the tillable acres currently in CRP. Once the contract expires, the two large fields could be put back into row crop production because the soils are high quality, and the terrain is flat. Don’t miss out on this exceptional hunting property with income upside in southeast Iowa! Call Land Specialist Ben Harshyne to jump on the chance to claim this dynamite property as your own!
