Nestled in the heart of Jo Daviess County, this rolling valley, peaceful stream, thick woods, and income-producing farm offer the best of Northwest Illinois to the hunter, the investor, and nature-lover.
Tracts of “just the right size” and “just the right mix for hunting and tillable” don’t come around very often. This parcel is “picture perfect” while offering the best of both worlds!
The first thing to greet you as you access the property is the rolling valley with spring-fed, cool-water creek. This valley runs east-west, providing outstanding loafing locations for wildlife on the southern slopes and incredible locations for food plots. The winding creek runs year-round, with crystal clear water, assuring a constant draw for wildlife bringing life to the property. Heavy spruce thickets provide cover for whitetail deer and turkey. You simply cannot walk this property without being overwhelmed by the amount of deer sign! Each opportunity to be on this property has been accompanied by seeing bigger and bigger whitetail deer. Each walk a chance to enjoy the strutting of several dozen resident turkey. And, with the warming weather through winter, migratory birds, including doves, have been making the peaceful valley their stop-over.
Substantial number of hardwood trees stand on the property, contributing to the “old stand” feeling of the timber. Mixed with the natural spruce, the variety of woodlands appeals to every type of wildlife. Ample edges exist to draw and hold animals. And, with the thickets, wildlife consider this their “safe place,” never straying far. The regional farming operations assure you that wildlife will return here to bed and breed.
The farming operation consists of approximately 40 acres of top land. Fair market rent is available as a revenue source from this tillable land and appropriate farming practices have been used to maintain a good stewardship of the land. Local tenants are interested in cash-renting, if the new owners prefer.
Taxes are approximately $430 per year. Immediate possession available.
Accessed from ample road frontage on E. Welch Road, between South Scout Camp Road and Logemann Road, this incredible find is just northeast of Woodbine, Illinois and moments north of Highway 20.

Additional amenities of the Galena Territories rounds out the perfect location to establish your own wildlife reserve and cash-crop investment parcel.
