Bollinger County MO properties draw attention from buyers from all over the region, and this 143+/- acres is going to be one of those properties that does not hang around long.
Located just northeast of Zalma, MO, sits this well laid out property. Of the 143+/- acres, 40+/- acres is fenced pasture, that is currently used for cattle and hay production. The balance of the property consists of hardwood timber, that will soon be ready to harvest. Hawker Creek runs through the property, providing a year-round water source for the wildlife and cattle.
The open areas provide a great building site for your dream home or weekend get-a-way. Electric is already on the property, taking away a major expense found on many properties in this remote region of the Show Me State.
Much of Bollinger County consists of large stands of hardwood timber, and steep, rocky terrain, with very little consistent food in the form of crops. However, the soil on this farm is plenty good to grow soybeans, wheat, clovers and legumes to attract deer and turkey. Ideally, planting this 40+/- acres in beans and let it remain standing in the field throughout the winter would pull deer and turkey from miles around to your property!
- Fantastic hunting farm with great food plot/ambush sites scattered throughout the property
- Potential lake site
- Good equestrian farm
- Ideal building spots
- Property is located off County Road 530
- 15 minutes from Advance, MO
- 40 miles SW Cape Girardeau, MO, and 40 miles NE Poplar Bluff, MO
- 2 hours from south St. Louis County, MO

**Land Specialist Opinion**
Avid hunters often cruise land sites in search of quality properties, and their opinion of the property is often derived from a quick glance at the aerial photo. Well, if you are one of those people, you certainly did a double take when this aerial popped up!
As mentioned above, much of this region has a limited food source for deer and turkey, especially late in the season, and certainly when the acorn crop is down. The open areas on this property have enough quality soil and are large enough to supply food year-round. My food of choice is almost always standing soybeans, and nothing pulls deer and turkey from neighboring properties like they do!
The other thing I would consider is to make this farm even better is to create more bedding cover, and I would do that in the form of native, warm season grasses. Many people will argue that a deer prefer bedding in this cover more than timber, and I agree! Planting these “back fields” in Big Blue Stem and Indian grasses will create bedding cover for deer and nesting cover for turkey, and if human intrusion is limited, a big deer will live here! Stay out of the bedding cover, be it the timber or the warm season grasses, and pull that bruiser buck within bow range with food! This property lays out perfectly to do all of this!
