Deer Hunting Property on Cherry Creek


At only 35 acres, this property is loaded with deer hunting potential. Thirty-two acres are woods with approximately 3 tillable acres located in the southwest corner of the property. The woods are made up of deep ravines which run from Cherry Creek Road down to Cherry Creek and back up the south side of this property to the three tillable acres. While walking the property I saw multiple deer rubs and plenty of acorns on the ground. This property is in an excellent travel corridor for whitetail deer moving east and west along Cherry Creek. South and west of this property sits over 150 acres of well-managed woods and native prairie. The diverse mix of wildlife habitat and ag fields surrounding this tract will give hunters plenty of great hunting opportunity. There are currently no government programs or easements on this property, therefore, harvesting timber, cutting trails and any other habitat improvements are permitted. The property is currently owned by Covia Holdings Corporation and they have followed strict restoration guidelines to ensure this property is in pristine ecological health.
