Nestled between the Shawnee National Forest, Cache River, and Horseshoe Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area, this premium southern Illinois hunting farm is a centralized hub of deer activity. With several inside corners and pinch points, prime tree stand locations are abundant. Hogskin Creek meanders through the center of the property, making an ideal ambush point for traveling bucks. There are approximately 17 acres of tillable currently in crop production with the balance in timber. A secluded finger of the central crop field would make for an excellent food plot location. This property has a history of producing trophy quality bucks and its proximity to the vast cover of the above-mentioned areas makes this a potential killer rut hunting farm that can produce the caliber of deer Alexander County is known for.
The property also includes an extremely well-built 48x80 barn that is fully insulated with a set of 16x16 double sliding doors on both the north and south ends of the building. The trusses have knee braces every 8 feet for added stability and the posts are set atop a 5-foot concrete footer to prevent deterioration. There is water to the property and electricity is feet away across the county road which would make converting a portion of the building into a living quarters a breeze.
Approximately 20 minutes from Cape Girardeau, MO, this perfect sized hunting farm with potential for living quarters is one you don't want to miss! Contact Dale Dunn today at 636-443-9481 for your private showing.
