Large Timber Parcel With Hunter’s Shack Close To Public Land



This large timbered parcel is located just a 1 ½ hour drive from the Minneapolis metro. Located just minutes from the Governor Knowles State Forest, and quietly positioned on a country road, the property offers the ultimate in seclusion. There is an easement off East River Road that leads to the property but a long-standing verbal agreement allowing the use of the neighbor’s driveway exists. The right to use this driveway does not automatically transfer with the sale but the owner seems to be a great guy and said he would like to first meet the next owner before granting access. So bring your best and perhaps you have a driveway to use! The property has not been logged in many years and appears to have a significant amount of Red Oak of substantial size. A proper thinning and strategic food plots would really draw in the deer this area is known for. I’d characterize this as a “numbers” parcel meaning there is a lot of deer. The area does put out some nice bucks though and with proper management, the right Land Manager could really move the needle. I am told there are a number of stands on the property that will be left in place. The cabin is useable and is a throwback to a bye-gone era. You will want to update it but it is functional. The highlight of this property is the location. Any property this close to the Twin Cities is sure to get a lot of attention so if you have been looking, let's talk. Call Land Specialist Neil A.
