This agent-owned 101+/- acre recreational hunting property located in Fayette County Illinois is a must-see!
In winter 2021, Don Higgins did a Whitetail Land Consulting Plan, which has been taking shape over the last year and a half, and which will come with the farm for the new owner to continue implementing if they choose to do so.
This property is comprised of a 3+/- acre home site, 24+/- acres of tillable farmland, and 5-1/2 +/- acres set aside for wildlife food plots. The other 19+/- acres of farmland haven’t been farmed in a few years but have since grown up into great bedding cover for wildlife and could be put back into production Ag if the buyer chooses to do so. The 1+/- acre pond and remaining balance of the property is timber and brushy cover. In addition, there is old grown-up cattle pasture in a few different locations on the farm which is also a great bedding cover.
The property was logged about 4 years ago and has since had a lot of regeneration growth making the timber thick for more bedding cover. There are currently 2, 360 hunting blinds near the food plot locations which make late-season hunting much more enjoyable. Around the edge of the food plots, there were Real World Wildlife Product Giant Miscanthus planted in the spring of 2022; that product takes a few years to get established but once it goes it is the best plot screen you will ever see to help for cleaner entry and exit routes. Close by the food plots, there is big mast-producing oak trees. Also, in the spring of 2022, there was a mixture of pear, apple, and chestnut trees planted for future drawing power. Hurricane Creek also runs through the property.
The farm features 3 points of access which are great for accessing different stand locations for different wind directions. The property is in a great neighborhood with regard to other hunters and how they manage quality Whitetails. The home would make a great hunting cabin for weekend getaways or could be a rental house to help produce income to put back into the farm. There is also a 40x90 pole barn which would be great for storing equipment or it could also be rented for income as well.
