You won’t believe the amount of deer signs on this prime hunting property! The property is mostly wooded with some brushy areas. With 2578 feet of road frontage on State Highway 171, it slopes upwards from the road and levels off on the top. The Seller is offering a FREE five (5) year lease to hunting in his adjoining 300-acre farm with the purchase of this property. Old logging trails provide access around the property, which was logged well over 15 years ago and offers future timber income potential. The woodlot is a mixture of soft and hardwoods, which are mainly oak and maple. Wild apples dot the brushy areas, providing an additional food source for the deer, wild turkey and other area wildlife. There is approximately 1780 feet of frontage on Moyer Creek, a tributary to the Mohawk River and there are 2 additional streams connecting down the hill through shallow ravines, which attract and funnel deer along the slope and up towards the benches and surrounding ag fields. There was good cell service while on the property and views overlooking the legendary Mohawk Valley. Amenities are available close by in Frankfort, located ~2.5 miles away, Ilion in 5 miles and Herkimer 7 miles away. The historic Erie Canal and Trail path for walking, jogging and biking is located within minutes. A host of additional outdoor activities awaits the new owner nearby, which include: public fishing access and canoe/boat hand launch at the Captain Samuel Maytan Fishing Access Site just 10 miles away, a public boat launch onto the Mohawk River in Little Falls only 16 miles away, and fishing the West Canada Creek, one of the most renowned trout streams in CNY, which runs into the Mohawk River in Herkimer, only 7 miles from this property. Plantation Island Wildlife Management Area, with its 200 unique island acres, offers additional hunting, trapping, hiking and fishing just 10 miles away. Only 15 minutes to the nearby Steuben Hill State Forest (1008 acres), which offers additional hiking, camping, hunting and trapping. Shopping, restaurants and entertainment in Utica is available just ~20 minutes away, with highlights featuring the Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute, Utica Zoo, historic Stanley Center for the Arts, Utica College, SUNY IT, multiple shopping malls including Sangertown Square and broad selection of restaurants and venues. The property is located just over an hour's commute to Syracuse, less than 1.5 hours to Albany and 3.5 hours to GWB/NYC.
