Small Acreage Mountain Lake Hunting Property


When it comes to property enrolled in the Re-Invest in Minnesota (RIM) Program, this piece is as good as it gets. As soon as I stepped out of the pickup and opened the door on my dog kennel, she immediately flushed two roosters. On the remainder of our walk, we jumped multiple pheasants at every stop along the way. We also saw dozens of deer to include a nice 8 point standing amongst a herd of the doe at three o’clock in the afternoon. I walked this property after the opening weekend of rifle season, both the deer and the pheasants seemed to be comfortable showing signs of little hunting pressure. This property is made up of rolling terrain with the highest ground being on the far north end bordering some crop ground. It gently slopes from there down to a creek that runs across the property from west to east near the southern boundary. In the far northwest corner is an excellent travel corridor for whitetail deer. This corner acts as a waterway to help drain the crop fields to the north and the deer tracks in this area are quite impressive. Also on the west side but further south sits a mature shelter belt of cedar trees and American plum thickets. This is a dense cover that holds both deer and pheasants. The remainder of the property is made up of well-managed upland grasses that offer excellent habitat throughout the year. This property sits immediately adjacent to another 40 acres being offered for sale by the same seller. The new buyer will have the option of purchasing the north 40 acres, the south 40 acres, or all 80 acres as one tract.
