514 acres in Appanoose County, Iowa

600th St., Exline, Iowa 52555 - Appanoose County
$1,374,950 514 Acres
Property ID 2903877


PRICE REDUCED!! There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that if this property continues to be managed and hunted correctly, it will have everything necessary to grow and hold bucks to maturity and will produce the kind of bucks that have made Iowa famous. It’s also currently producing approximately $37,000 of annual income (see income breakdown below). I don’t know of another property that has so many acres of thick cover. Much of this cover is in the riparian buffer tree CRP program and is actually income producing. This CRP is a mixture of cedars, pines, and hardwoods and is some of the best thermal cover you’ll ever find. The late season holding capacity of the cover on this property is second to none. A large majority of this cover is located right in the center of the farm, so keeping deer within the boundaries during shotgun and late season will be very possible with strategically located food plots. This is a big deal when it comes to getting bucks to older age classes. Check out some of the attached trail cam pics from the past 2 years! In addition to the incredible holding capacity of the property, a big bonus is that approximately 295 acres of the property are income producing. There is great access throughout the property. The owners have built roads along the south side of the property and have cleared and planted numerous food plots along the road system. There is a nice 30 x 60 pole barn built in 2012 with water and electric run to it on the north side of the property. There are also several unreal building sites for a house or cabin that would provide great views of the property and food plots. There is nothing like watching your property out your back window with a spotting scope! If you’re looking for a large income producing property that’s got the potential to grow and hold giant bucks and has great building sites, you need to check this 514 acres out.
