Abundant Wildlife In The Grass Lake Habitat Complex Of West Central MN


PRICE REDUCED!! Located on the outskirts of Willmar and part of the overall larger “Grass Lake” habitat complex, this property not only holds multiple game species with its diverse habitat but also has existing tillable ground for income, the ability to build and potential commercial/industrial development.  The majority of the property has been enrolled in the state RIM program and is comprised of upland prairie grasses, newly seeded prairie grasses and wildflowers, low thick wintering seclusion cover, some wooded cover and open water areas.  It also is a part of a larger contiguous habitat complex known as “Grass Lake” which is just over 1,000 acres in size.  All in all, the property and the area is comprised of a diverse mixture of habitat components which it is no wonder that there is a high population of multiple game species.  With agricultural fields to the north, south, and east of the property and thick beddings areas, it didn’t surprise me to see deer and deer sign all over this property and in walking a trail leading from the bedding to the feeding areas, I found a nice set of matched sheds. There are multiple stand locations around the bedding areas and with the potential to modify the conservation plan, the ability to cultivate some food plots or do tree plantings would only increase the already attractiveness of this property. Pheasants? I couldn't tell you how many roosters that I heard cackling when I’ve been out to the property which again, doesn’t surprise me with the diversity of the habitat.  The newly seeded RIM area will only increase the amount of nesting cover on this property.  Waterfowl? Even though there aren’t large areas of open water, I have witnessed several ducks and geese landing in the open water “ditch” on the east side and the smaller water hole to the west of the wooded portion.  Interested in developing a large food plot or tillable income? There are roughly 12.5 acres of existing tillable ground on the south end of the property that yields a great crop productivity index of over 95 out of 100.  This area would also be a great site to build your home out in the country and still be minutes away from the amenities of town.  One could also look to sell off all or portions of this tillable ground for additional home sites and the possibility of future commercial/industrial development is true potential. A lot more to say so whether you are looking for a nice hunting parcel with tillable income, interested in building and hunting out your back door, give me a call and I’d love to discuss this diverse property in greater detail.
