74.9 acres in Gallatin County, Illinois

000 Saltwell Road, Equality, Illinois 62934 - Gallatin County
$199,000 74.90 Acres
Property ID 3093278


PRICE REDUCED!! Prime hunting tract with income! This tract has had minimal hunting pressure and been in the same family for decades. The farm is ideally located in the transition zone from big timber to agriculture. The area around the farm is vast agriculture on one side and a large expanse of timber on the other. With 43 acres tillable and just over 31 acres of timber, it has the ideal mix of habitat. The topography of the timbered ridges creates several natural travel corridors and pinch points. Proof of this is in the photos that reveal worn out deer trails leading from the ridge top bedding areas down to the row crops below. The timber is loaded with several species of mast producing oaks, a preferred food source in October. The secluded 2.5-acre field on the west side would make a perfect staging plot to lure mature bucks out before sundown.

This farm would also lend well to habitat improvements. Portions of the large crop field on this farm can be used to create several food plots. In years of corn, this could be left standing to create a screen around the plots and direct deer travel.  Hinge cutting areas of the ridge top could also direct travel as well as enhance preferred bedding areas.

The Shawnee National Forest on the south and southwest sides borders the farm. This provides the opportunity to take advantage of the vast expanse of timbered ridges and hunt many more acres. 

Don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of this well-rounded hunting tract! Give us a call today to schedule your private showing!
