Hard to Find 40 Acre All Timber Tract With Unbelievable Deer Sign
Illinois Land For Sale | This is one of those all-timber, mid-size farms that are hard to find but it’s what we’re all looking for. The deer sign on this property was incredible and completely littered the forest’s floor. I jumped ten to fifteen deer and saw seven turkeys, two of them being long beards. Because of the topography and the way it lays out, this farm will hunt and feel much larger than it actually is, which will make this property even more attractive to you as a buyer. There is a beautiful valley with a seasonal stream that starts on the north-central half the property and runs the entire length of the timber. There’s also a small pond on the north side, which is providing year-round water for all wildlife and it was very evident the deer are using it, as the edge was covered with deer tracks.
For being a mid-size tract, this place truly has it all from an ideal food plot area, dependable water sources, bedding and security cover. There’s a section of the property serving as a primary sanctuary that is made up of thick, dense cover and is clearly being used as a bedding area. The deer trails leading in and out of the section of the property literally looked like worn-down cow paths! Another great advantage to this farm is that it is bordered by two large contiguous tracts that border it on all sides and it offers approximately a half-mile of paved road frontage. Because of the amount of road frontage, you can access the farm from either the north, south, or directly from the west; a luxury that is hard to find and very important when using the wind direction to your advantage when covertly accessing your tree stand locations. This is a must-see-to appreciate property! Shown by appointment only.
