Here is a rare find in Iroquois County, Illinois! This 89.49 acre parcel is the ideal recreational tract boasting 66 +\- acres in permeant CREP, and 22 +\- acres in tillable, with a possible building site if desired.
The 66 acres has been enrolled in CREP since 2001, allowing for the growth of beneficial Hardwood species like Red and White Oak, Pin Oaks, and Burr oaks to produce acorn food sources in early fall for whitetails in particular. Areas of the CREP is also lined with White Pine and Eastern Red Cedar, providing another source of great bedding areas on the property. The maturity of Illinois native grasses that were planted includes but are not limited to Blue stem, Little Blue Stem, and Indian grass. These provide additional optimal cover and bedding for whitetail or upland game, allowing almost perfect conditions for the bird and small game hunters. The 23 acres of tillable not only allows for a possible building site, but because it butts up against the Southeast corner of the CREP acreage, it provides a desirable “inside corner” to allow for a great edge stand set up that is easily accessible.
There are a few areas scattered throughout the property allowing for food plot planting as well as areas that have had cover crop implemented before. The CREP programs allow for a 10% cover crop planting or food plot options, making the opportunities for this parcel endless. The “boot” layout of the property allows for 3 side accesses if needed or desired, allowing ideal access into the parcel.
The large inventory of mature whitetail pictures, combined with the history of low hunting pressure on this property makes this parcel too good to pass up.
This parcel sits roughly 90 miles from Chicago, Illinois and 65 miles from Champaign, Illinois.
