Deer hunters, if your aim is to find a turn-key deer hunting tract with a proven history of producing trophy-quality bucks, this – property has earned the right to grab your attention and checks all the big-buck boxes. Set back from the road and accessed by a deeded right of way, this exceptional hunting parcel's secluded and secure, wooded expanse is an absolute deer haven. The primary entryway to the property gently rises from the valley floor, where the topographical change naturally produces a series of transitional habitats and areas ideally suited for developing terraced food plots and various sanctuary locations. Approximately a half dozen established food plots break up the timber to provide ambush locations among the distinctly-mixed stands of hard and softwood trees. The eastern aspect features a steep and rugged descent that offers a buffer from neighboring properties with the necessary benches, overgrown log roads and thermal cover to make it an absolute deer warehouse. Thorough and carefully-planned logging practices have opened the tree canopy to allow sunlight to reach the forest floor to generate large amounts of bedding cover, travel corridors, pinch points and funnels where deer can feel safe to move freely around the property. Dominant tree species are comprised of various species of oak and hemlock with intermittent maple, black cherry, white and red pine and a limited number of other hard and softwood trees.
Additionally, through these same forest management practices, the "money" trees have been nurtured and preserved for future harvest – with a recent forest survey detailing significant timber value to be potentially realized in approximately 5, 10 and 20-year increments. Each food plot location features additional enhancements to add to its attractiveness, including planted and/or released apple trees, watering holes, multiple cultivar plantings, licking branches/rub trees, etc. Included in the sale are two Banks Outdoors hard-sided Stump blinds and the famous "training treestand," a built-in platform-style stand with two apple trees within easy shooting distance that has provided many new hunters a chance to harvest their very first buck. Under the principles of Quality Deer Management, scores and does and dozens of bucks 120-inches or greater have been taken from the property, with the largest stretching the tape to over 170-inches – an actual achievement in the region of NY. As a true practitioner of deer management principles, the current owner has followed strict guidelines for wildlife and habitat management of this property while putting smiles on the faces of their family and friends for over a dozen years. Aside from deer, the property also sports a robust population of turkeys with bears, bobcats, coyotes and even the occasional pheasant calling it home. Additional features include an internal road and trail system to create exceptional access through most of the ground with easy access for ATV/UTVs, food plot and forest equipment and even trucks along the main access road. A great location to build a camp or home, Electricity is available at the road, but no other utilities are available at this time. Located minutes from downtown Spencer and a short distance from Ithaca, a wide range of amenities are easily accessed in a short drive.
