Property Description

WATCH THE FULL LENGTH VIDEO OF THIS INCREDIBLE TROPHY HUNTING PROPERTY

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the most intensely managed, well documented, trophy deer hunting properties in the country. Owner Gregg Ritz of Hunt Masters TV and WildComm has spent 8 years manicuring this 330 acre Hancock Co IL farm into what it is today, A BOONE AND CROCKET BUCK FACTORY !!! This property is the core of 1,550 contiguous acres also under the strict management of Gregg Ritz. Not only has Gregg put in countless hours of thought, strategic planning, and implementation of food plots, access roads, waterholes, and timber management but, has also had deer and habitat specialists Dr. Grant Woods and Jake Ehlinger consult on the property as well. The Deer density is very impressive but even more impressive is the 3 to 1 buck to doe ratio on the farm. The trail camera history from the last 7 seasons is staggering with each unique buck having its own folder so as to be able to follow his development, patterns and preferred areas of the farm. The knowledge gained from the cameras and countless hours of scouting has resulted in 30 treestands and shadow hunter box blind locations on this 330 acre parcel. With many of these locations being on or near one of the 16 established food plots. The terrain and timber are very diverse. Whether it’s the mature timbered ridges, the flats that parallel the creek, or the thick cedar groves, they all have one thing in common, an overwhelming amount of deer sign. The food plots are beautiful and well laid out with huge rubs and scrapes around the perimeters. The well maintained internal road system makes for easy, quiet access to all parts of the farm. Gregg Ritz plans to continue to grow and manage this incredible neighborhood for trophy bucks and would be open to assisting a new owner with management and upkeep of the 330. THE LAST 7 SEASONS ON THIS ONE OF KIND PROPERTY HAVE PRODUCED 5 BOONE AND CROCKET BUCKS !!!!! AVERAGE SCORE OF 177″ and 2 IN THE 180s !
This premium hunting property may sound to good to be true but seeing is believing………………….
