Premier Lucas County Hunting Farm! You will want to take a tour of this well managed hardwood timber hunting property. Many Deer and Turkey call this property home and you’ll routinely see the same bucks from year to year. A mowed trail system will guide you through the property where you will find (3) acres of well established food plots, over a dozen strategically planted fruit trees, and Dunstan Chestnut trees. There are two (2) Redneck tower blinds each overlooking their own food plots planted in winter wheat, clover, and mixed brassicas. The timber bottom is filled with Oak, Hickory, Black Walnut, Hackberry, and Black Cherry. Towering Cottonwood trees add character and giant Bur Oaks serve as turkey roosts. The timber is insulated by Cedars on the sidehills, where deer take refuge during the winter. The meandering creek provides a natural water source for the wildlife.
The East side of the property has beautiful views and a hilltop site for a home or cabin with a grass/dirt path guiding you to it. Only a 45 min drive from the South side of Des Moines. The entire property has been enrolled in the forest preserve, so you will enjoy $0 in property taxes. TSI was completed on nearly 30 acres of the property in 2019 to greatly improve the deer cover, natural food availability, and release the most marketable trees for enhanced growth. Monarch and Pollinator friendly planting was completed in 2021 on 2 acres on the West side. (2) Redneck blinds on elevated platforms are included in the sale of the property, as well as a 3rd elevated platform and older brush hog mower. Rathbun Rural Water Association has water at the road and power is provided at the highway.
