The property is located just 19 miles north of Kirksville, in the heart of some of the best trophy deer hunting in Central Missouri, and is the most sought-after mix of habitat; it’s almost exactly 50/50 tillable and timber/habitat. The rolling terrain and rich fertile soils provide some of the best habitat you can ask for on a property. Cedar-choked draws, a good mix of hardwood timber and thick cover and as a bonus you have approximately 202 acres of income and food-producing tillable land. The farm tenant has been farming 202 acres of both bottom land and upland tillable, and the farm is open tenancy for the 2023 farm season. There are also plenty of small open areas that could be converted into small food plots that would not conflict with the cash flow on the tillable.
There are four access points to the farm, but very little of the farm is visible from any roadway. This allows for easy entry for hunting while maintaining the seclusions needed for growing and holding big whitetails. Several thick brushy draws on south-facing hillsides are choked with cedars providing excellent thermal cover and year-round bedding. With a major creek running through the middle of the property you have a year-round fresh water source and a major travel corridor during the rut.
The property has two small ponds and two cattle waterers on site. Rural water and electric are also available on the north end of the property.
There is an existing mobile home on the property that is not livable but sits on an awesome building site at the end of Dralt Lane Rd with an incredible view. Contact Land Specialist David Westmoreland to set up a time to view t his great hunting and farming tract.
