This Putnam County property is set up for recreation and luxury. It has excellent lodging in a 2,400 sq. ft Morton building, in-ground pool, additional building for storage and great hunting.
The lodge has 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a stone fireplace, hardwood and tiled floors and beautiful wood ceilings. There is a salt water in-ground pool and front and back covered decks with views of the food plots and the mature timbered ridges. There is also a 40 x 80 insulated and heated Morton building that has plenty of room for storing your vehicles, toys and tools.
It’s rare to have timbered acreage next to a large property that doesn’t allow hunting but this property has just that! Putnam County has outstanding trophy hunting to begin with but having a property next to acreage that allows zero hunting is gold mine for big deer!The property is loaded with massive rubs showing the intensity of the autumn rut. The turkeys are also in no short supply, as there are big Tom’s being harvested every season.
This is a must see and a true turn-key property that will be loads of fun for an entire family!!
There is an additional 262 acres for sale in the river bottoms. This acreage has been designed and constructed for waterfowl and has tremendous deer and is only a few minutes away!

This 262-acre Putnam County farm has been setup for some of the finest waterfowl and deer hunting opportunities you will find in Illinois. The current owner worked directly with Ducks Unlimited to design and establish the 5 wetland cells that can be flooded with one pumping station.
The individual wetland cells create a unique opportunity to establish a great diversity in your wetland feed. The wetlands can be flooded at different time frames giving you the opportunity to control when and where ducks will be feeding throughout the hunting season. There is a Bradley Blind (Steel Pit) in one of the levees. There are numerous locations to build permanent or floating blinds giving you the ability to hunt the right blinds with the right wind, or it opens the avenue of generating income by leasing a few of the blinds to other hunters.
If the duck hunting is slow, don’t forget about the giant whitetails that roam these parts of the river bottom. This property has excellent pinch points and travel corridors, along with ideal locations for fall food plots to help hold deer on this property.
The property is an ideal waterfowl location l as it sits within a few miles of the well known “Hennepin Hopper” (Dixon Waterfowl Refuge), between Henry and Hennepin along the Illinois River – approximately 2 hours from downtown Chicago.
This property is within 3.1 miles of the 86 acre Putnam County listing being offered by LandGuys. Combined these two properties offer a unique opportunity to own an absolutely beautiful “Turn-key” recreational property complete with great deer, duck, and turkey hunting.
