Decatur County Iowa Hardwoods with Fishing Lake and Elk Creek

County Rd R-12, Grand River , Iowa 50108 - Decatur County
$629,000 210 Acres
Property ID 2995590


Decatur County Iowa is famous for growing monster Whitetails and is host to numerous television shows every year. This area generates Boone & Crocket caliber bucks with regularity. To find a timber tract with these features is a true rarity, and allows you the opportunity to harvest one of those giants you see on TV. This property is known by the locals as the place where the big boys go to hide. Quality mixed oak, hickory, and the occasional walnut tree dominate the hardwood forest. Over half a mile of Elk Creek is located on the property and allows for a natural travel corridor for the deer as they travel from corn and bean fields into the timber for cover. Two large creek bottom grass fields allow for food plot development with the high quality black soil that Iowa is famous for. These fields will also hold pheasants with little effort. Turkey sign is everywhere on the property with tracks in the snow and scratches below the oaks. An incredible 6.5 acre fishing lake is an added bonus that allows for your own private resort quality outdoor experience. With proper management, this lake has the opportunity to grow a 10 pound bass and compete for a state record. A well developed trail system is cut along the ridge tops and allows 4-wheeling or hiking access to all parts of the property. Numerous entry points along the southern and western edges allow for strategic entry depending on the prevailing winds. Sand Creek State Wildlife Area and Decatur State Wildlife Area are less than 10 miles away and allow for an additional 5000 acres of potential trophy hunting. Drive time from Des Moines is only 1 hour and 3 minutes down I-35. From KC it's a 2 hour and 3 minute drive up I-35.
