Whitetail Property With Timber Value Near North Bend State Park


Located just over a mile off Route 31 down a single-lane graveled county road, this hunting property offers seclusion and privacy in a game-rich area. As both a hunting / rural get-a-way property and income-producing timber investment, this property is an excellent value for the price. Through the gate on the private driveway, the access road up the hill is well-built, partially graveled, and runs through-out a large percentage of the property. The UTV access through-out the property is excellent, while truck/SUV access to the property is fair. Four-wheel drive is recommended in bad weather, but County Route 31/2 is graveled and maintained. The property is currently leased for hunting and consistently produces strong whitetail, turkey, bear, and small game numbers. There is timber value on the property, although it has been timbered at least one time in its recent past. Consult the listing agent for more details concerning timber value. The property has a combination of hardwoods and pines – with a couple of pocket meadows in the stream bottoms that could be suitable for small food plots. Long Run is a stream that runs along the west side of the property and there is a strong probability of multiple springs being located on the property. The deer sign is strong, and the diverse forest is excellent whitetail habitat. This area is known for its trophy whitetail potential if managed with good practice. It is only fifteen minutes from Ellenboro and twenty minutes from North Bend State Park. The State Park offers several hiking trails, camping options, cabin rentals, and fishing destinations. Public hunting and fishing are also available at the nearby Sand Hill Wildlife Management Area which is over 1,800 acres in Ritchie and Wood counties.
