Property Description

We have found over the years that these types of properties that are part of the CREP program are often home to some of the biggest bucks in the state of IL. They provide some of the thickest cover and often parallel a major waterway which in itself seems to attract big bucks. The entire north side of this farm is bordered by tillable fields. The south side of the property is bordered by a large creek. When looking at the aerial photo its easy to see that this farm is the core piece of cover in the area. The impressive amount of well used trails, beds, and old rubs and scrapes confirms that this farm is home to a large portion of the local deer herd. The are many mowed trails throughout allowing for easy, quiet access to all parts of the property. Ground Blinds, Hay bale blinds or enclosed shooting towers are the name of the game as there are not many trees large enough to hang stands in. The property has been hunted very lightly and the landowner has found several impressive shed antlers. This farm screams big bucks! Stay tuned for trail camera pictures……..
