SOLD – This is a great opportunity to buy a unique hunting property along the Illinois River. The habitat diversity on this property really sets it apart from other river bottom properties that I have seen in the past. The majority of the property is enrolled in a lifetime CREP program, but there are 7 acres along US Route 100 that are exempt from the CREP Program. The 7-acre tract already has a nice cabin site location cleared out and also has electricity and rural water available along the road. The remainder of the 7 exempt acres are currently being farmed for income and could be utilized as tillable ground or a great food plot location in the future. The CREP contract allows up to 8 acres of food plots to be planted each year for deer, several secluded food plot locations already exist. The terrain on this property is very flat and easy to navigate, but it also has thickets that are almost impossible to walk through creating some impressive bedding areas. The mature trees on the east side of the property could be selectively harvested to improve the timber stand and create more bedding areas as well. The amount of deer that show up in these river bottom properties during the rut is very impressive.
There are also some duck hunting opportunities on the South East corner of this property. There is a secluded timber-hole in place and on the right year planting millet along the border of Big Lake and in the timber-hole would make this corner of the property even more desirable for waterfowl. If your looking for a property that can provide some excellent deer hunting as well as a great place to shoot some ducks you need to come take a look at this property.
