Behind a gated entrance, this farm is situated in the belly of one of the best watersheds in western Illinois, for trophy whitetail deer hunting. The volume of buck traffic that will roam this chunk of ground, and call it home, each season, will astound you. And there are some true giants killed in this part of Mercer County, every year, because of it. Thousands of acres of connected timber, new tree plantings, and tall grass CRP fields surround this farm and line the banks of the Edwards River, on neighborhood farms. If you’re looking for a well cared for farm that has an extensive trails system to allow stealthy ingress and egress during almost any wind direction, established food plots that are already planted for this fall, and will offer you and your loved ones lots of rut hunting excitement, and outstanding firearm season success for years to come, this is your farm! Much of this property is established in a 20-30 year old mix of softwood timber, with a dappling of black walnut. Some new plantings include hybrid chestnut for additional attraction to some food plot locations, and some swamp white oak and chinkapin oak plantings, as well. This timber is THICK, and it holds deer throughout October, November and December. Food plots will help hold them there until the season winds down. Turkeys, wood ducks, and good fishing are all added bonuses of this farm. Located, a couple miles southwest of Matherville, IL; north of the Edwards River, and south of 125th Avenue.
