If I could create the ideal hunting farm for the avid outdoorsman this would be it! This farm offers prime turkey hunting, great early-season waterfowl hunting and some of the best trophy whitetail hunting in this part of the country. Strict hunting policies the past decade have led to a well-balanced deer herd with superior age structure. Also, the fact that one of the neighbors owns 3,500 acres and does not allow any hunting means the deer are not pressured. Take a quick glance at the trail camera pictures to get an idea on the genetics in this area. Large mainframe 10’s, tall tined and heavy 8’s, non-typicals and one funky “cactus” buck call this property home. Many of these pictures are from the 2015 velvet season so there are several Illinois bruisers to chase this fall. The farm has great access on the west side from Raleigh Lane (dead-end lane). Comprised of mostly timber this farm is laid out in the shape of a “C.” There is a ridge running along the west side that wraps around to the south giving it that “C” shape. In the center of the farm stretching to the northeast corner, is low-lying, fertile, creek-bottom ground. This is where several food plots are planted. The owner maintains and manicures this farm with a 100hp cab tractor so all of the internal access roads are plenty wide. Grab a hunting buddy and let’s take a look because this farm is priced right. Call me today and we can take a walk!
