Property Description

This farm offers possibly one of the best opportunities for excellent waterfowl, whitetail deer and wild turkey hunting, all in one tract, that I’ve seen in a long time. This land is teaming with wildlife, all year long. With frontage on Shadow Lake, which measures over 95 acres in size, and frontage one the Rock River, on the river’s side of the Corps levy, this farm offers outstanding duck and goose hunting. Massive amounts of softwood and mixed hardwood timber all feed into this property, alongside the river and lake, and the deer traffic on this property is impressive. With 28.4 acres of good quality tillable land, in three fields, there is ample opportunity for income, and for food plots. An old block house, which has been in the same family for many years, is in disrepair, but stands strong near the east end of the farm, overlooking the lake. Owners, who grew up there, say to their knowledge it has never flooded on the land where the home stands. A couple of other barns remain around the homesite that could use some repairs, but appear to be serviceable, should you wish to make use of them. A good gambrel roof “party barn” is situated not far from the old homesite, and features a full loft, concrete foundation and interior floor, as well as electrical service. This structure was once used to host barn dances, and has definite potential to be converted to a cabin or hunting camp living quarters. The farm is accessed by easement road around the north and west side of the Antique Engine & Tractors Association property. Located 8 miles north of Geneseo, IL.
