** Land Specialist Opinion**
A few years back, I was fortunate enough to be a part of the current owners purchase of this property. When I walked on the property, I knew it was a property that could be turned into a fantastic recreational/ hunting property.
One of the first things I look for when evaluating the potential of a farm for deer hunting is access. This characteristic is often an afterthought to the amateur deer hunter, but to those who are passionate about the pursuit, good access is a must. When you look at the lay of this property, most of the bedding area is on the west side of the farm, and the main entry point of the farm is from the east. This means that prevailing westerly winds are in your face when you are approaching stand sites, and you are not blowing the deer out of their bedding areas. Understand that the wind blows out of the east a fair amount in the fall and winter.no problem! There is hard road access on the west side of the property as well. THIS IS HUGE!
Secondly, the food plot areas are between the access to the east and the bedding to the west, so again, an ideal scenario that will allow you to get to your stand sites undetected. These plot areas are also on ridge tops, allowing the hunter to take advantage of wind currents that pull your scent straight up on those cold fall mornings.
Thirdly, the overall habitat and the ability to hold wildlife on the property is excellent. The bedding areas are hilly with thick brush, both of which are very important to a mature whitetail. When the cold wind blows, deer hunker down in these protected areas and will stay there, providing nice hunting opportunities. This safety cover also provides ideal areas to rear fawns and turkey nesting habitat. There is also an ample water supply, so all the wildlife has everything they need to call this farm home.
If you are looking for a horse/cattle property, look no further. All of the tillable ground could be converted to pasture and grazing areas, and could hold several head. Again, water is everywhere here, so that makes the conversion easy and less expensive.
Last but certainly not least is the PHENOMINAL lake site that is here. I am not an expert at saying how big the lake would be, but 15 acres is not out of the question!
