Diverse Hunting Tract With Deer, Pheasant And Turkey Possibilities Near Sacred Heart


Located just SW of Sacred Heart and in the heart of the Minnesota River Valley area, this property not only will provide opportunities at the quality bucks that roam this area but the ability to hunt waterfowl, pheasants and possibly a turkey or two.  Not only is the property located just up out of the river bottom, but it lies just east of the Skalbekken County Park which to the west of that is the Upper Sioux Agency State Park, and together they make up over 1500 acres that have very limited hunting making this area an excellent area for big bucks.  The property itself has had extensive habitat restoration work completed on it through the state RIM (Reinvest in MN) easement program.  For starters, the restored tallgrass prairie and wildflowers are very diverse making it not only good nesting but bedding cover.  There have also been numerous tile breaks, embankments and a sheet piling weir water control structure installed to restore the wetlands creating not only open water areas but thicker cattail and willow wintering and bedding cover, along with a food plot area on the south side of the property which has potential to be expanded.  Deer sign is evident on this property which doesn’t surprise me with the proximity to the river bottom and having adjacent crop fields and additional habitat.  The cover from a pheasant standpoint is perfect for nesting and early season hunting and then has that wintering cover component to it so you can shoot roosters all season long with the potential to modify the conservation plan and plant some additional woody cover shelterbelts.  Need to build a home or a hunting cabin?  There is roughly a 1.8-acre building site designated out on the west side of the property which is located on a dead end road for great privacy.  Looking for a bit larger parcel?  There is an additional 80 acres to the north of this property which the seller will sell as well to make a total of just over 230 acres.  You have to see this property in person to fully understand its makeup so give me a call, and I’d be glad to discuss any questions that you have!
