The phrases Turn Key or Sportsmans Paradise are often overused when describing Real Estate listings. However, there are times when those terms are used, but they do not begin to do a property justice. This is one of those times.
Located in Western Montgomery County, this 279+/-Sportsmans Paradise offers sporting opportunities for a multitude of game. First on the list is Whitetail Deer. With a mix of broken pasture, hardwoods, creek bottoms, and thickets, there is no shortage of variety in the cover this property offers. From warm season grasses to Red Cedar thickets to open hardwoods the property offers cover for 365 days of the year, regardless the weather conditions. The multiple drainages and edges create natural travel corridors that lead to the well placed blinds and feeders that have been used in a yearly feeding program for the past 15+ years. The access trails and shooting lanes have all been mowed and trimmed throughout the property helping to make this property Turn Key Ready for the next owner. The property has also been part of a selective harvest program for 15+ years along with a large portion of the adjoining acreage.
The deer density appears to be very good in the area as well as the trophy potential, with the property having produced multiple Boone and Crocket and Pope and Young caliber whitetails.
The mature Red and White Oak lined creeks also makes excellent habitat for the resident Turkey population. The property is known to have one of the larger turkey populations in the area and has also produced trophies in both the Eastern and Rio subspecies.
One of the most overlooked sporting opportunities in this area could perhaps be waterfowl hunting. With almost 1 mile of Coon Creek running through the property as well as the multiple backwater sloughs that adjoin it, there is no shortage of water on the property to attract and hold Waterfowl, not to mention the access to the large watershed lake the property offers. Multiple loafing areas as well as roosting areas are located on the property, and there is plenty of water sources to pump from should a buyer decide to design a larger marsh.
Along with Waterfowling opportunities, Coon Creek and the Watershed Lake will also offer excellent freshwater fishing opportunities. Known for the excellent numbers of Crappie and Channel Catfish, these waters are also home to Flathead Catfish and Largemouth Bass to name a few additional species. The water also attracts Bald Eagles which can often be seen flying over the lake.
With over 1/2 mile of lake frontage shoreline, the WPA built watershed lake was designed as a 110 acre impoundment for both Coon Creek, as well as Illinois Creek. The mature timbered shoreline would make an ideal build site or family picnic site. Enjoy the day with the family canoeing or kayaking across the lake, or take advantage of the rolling terrain that sets up well for recreational ATV/UTV riding.
The property is very secluded with minimal road frontage. Perimeter fencing is considered to be in average to poor condition with some areas needing work. Mineral Rights will transfer with there being no current production or current leases. Showings by appointment only with the Listing Brokerage required to be present.
