Property Description

If old trophy class whitetails are your priority or hunting one of the last remaining populations of wild pheasants in Illinois then this is your property! I’ve had the luxury of running cameras and laying out the food plots and sanctuary on this property for the last 2 years. Seller wanted it to be perfect before he put the farm on the market and it’s pretty darn close! This area of Knox is known for producing Boone & Crocket class bucks consistently with 8-190+ deer coming from this area in the last 8 years. The age class is there with us having many deer over 5 years old for both seasons! The neighboring properties are large with little hunting pressure and a strong herd with excellent genetics in place.

The large area of CRP snaking through the Spoon River bottoms has created a paradise for deer and pheasants. I have personally seen 7 roosters in a food plot at 1 time with sunrise and sunset cackling all over the property.
