Come build your dream home or cabin near the Des Moines River! Located on State Highway 62 sits this scenic buildable site with great recreational opportunities. With thousands of trees, paved road frontage, and great hunting, this property is set up to make an incredible building site. Most of the property is made up of diverse tree plantings. Some of the tree belts consist of mature pine trees, while some are made up of hardwoods and small shrubs. Near Highway 62, the elevation is higher with a designated area right in the middle for a future building site. The southern end of the property is lower ground close to the Des Moines River. The low ground has some great cover with native grasses and a thick stand of hardwoods. In the middle of the property is an open area that would make a great food plot. It is surrounded by trees and is already outfitted with a Muddy Box Blind. The arrangement of this tract sets up great for hunting whitetail deer and pheasants. When I walked the property, I saw a ton of sign; buck rubs, pheasant tracks, and multiple deer trails in the fresh snow. Most of this tract is enrolled in the Re-Invest in Minnesota (RIM) Program. This program is a permanent conservation easement that protects the habitat from being disturbed in the future. While this program does have some restrictions, it also has its advantages, especially for hunting purposes. RIM allows landowners to plant food plots, manage native grasses and conduct other conservation-minded practices. As previously mentioned, there are five acres that have been left out of the RIM Program. These five acres would be the designated buildable area for the future development of your forever home or cabin. This is a great area for outdoor recreation. Located 5 miles east of Talcot Lake, there are multiple public recreational activities available year-round. There are over a dozen public hunting areas within a five-mile radius. In the summer months, Talcot Lake campground has a swim beach, sand volleyball, playgrounds, fish cleaning stations, and much more!
