Le Sueur County Hunting Paradise


Here is an incredible opportunity to own one of the best hunting properties Le Sueur County has to offer. With 60 tillable acres, 50 acres of mature hardwoods, and pristine upland habitat, this tract has it all. Cherry Creek runs along the north portion of the property surrounded by deep ravines and mature oak trees. The hardwood bluffs cut in and out of the cropland to create a ton of edge habitat crucial for hunting whitetail deer. A thick stand of native grasses makes for excellent bedding throughout the property. There is a trail system in place making for easy access to travel to and from your favorite hunting location. Multiple building sites exist for you to build your dream home or hunting cabin.  Even though the property borders a highway, the geography makes this property seem much more secluded.
