If you’re in the market for a property that will not only provide a great opportunity for hunting multiple species but will also have a sizeable tillable component for producing income as well as the possibility to build your dream home, you have to check out this property in the Alexandria Lakes Area. This property is located approximately 6 miles SE from downtown Alexandria and just S of Lake Mary. Make sure and click on the “View Full Screen” link at the top left of the opening aerial photo to access the interactive map of the property. From this and if you look at the aerials, you will see that the hunting land portion of the property, as well as smaller existing tillable fields, are located on the southern part of the property with the main tillable land located N of this. The property has been a historic producer for deer and I pushed some deer out when flying my drone as well as jumped others when walking the property. There are 4 separate smaller tillable fields located next to the thick cover varying in size and total around 6.25 acres which would be great areas to plant in a variety of food plots. One could also utilize portions of the larger tillable field to expand and create some even larger complex of food plots. If you also have an interest in pheasants, I’m probably being conservative in that when walking the property, if I flushed one, I flushed 50 pheasants and I didn’t have my dogs with that day so I can only imagine how many I walked by. Even without dogs, I could have had my late-season limit in less than a half-hour. The number of tracks was unbelievable but it’s due to the prime wintering habitat that the property provides as well as nesting cover. There are also various open areas in the cattails that given normal rainfall years (2021 was dry), will provide some waterfowl opportunities as well. Per the sellers, the SW approx. 60 acres of the property is in an old Fish and Wildlife wetland easement which only limits draining of the wetland (more info on program details). The tillable components again consist of the smaller fields to the south which total about 6.25 acres and then the larger main field that per the FSA field boundaries is approx. 80.93 acres for a total tillable of around 87 acres (see the field map pic at the end of the pictures for sizes and approx. boundaries). The overall CPI rating for the tillable fields comes in at just under 84 out of 100. Even though given the current commodity prices the tillable rent probably could be slightly higher, the renter for the tillable has had a long-standing year-to-year agreement with the sellers and the current deal provides $130/acre. The property consists currently of an existing 14 acres PID, 40 acres PID, and then will be approximately 85 +/- acres of an existing 120 +/- acres PID. This existing 120 +/- acres PID includes approximately 35 +/- acres and a house N of the E/W Partridge Ln that the sellers are going to split off and retain. The point is, the total acreage is approximate and would be determined from a final survey. Taxes are then to be determined with this split but they are currently in a homestead status and would change if switched to non-homestead. There are also great building sites on the property if you’re interested in building a home or cabin and the property lies in the Alexandria School district and how cool would it be as your address would either be Partridge Ln or Pheasant Way! Let’s not forget about all the fishing opportunities in the area. Much less Lake Mary and Lake Andrew that is literally next door, there are multiple other top-notch fisheries not only N but S of the property as well. All in all, if you’re again looking for a property that will not only provide some great hunting opportunities but has tillable income as well as building opportunities, give me a shout and we can discuss this unique and rare opportunity in Alexandria Lakes Area!
