Property Description

SOLD – If you’re a serious deer hunter, everything about this farm will excite you. It is situated along the south side of on one of the best big buck corridors in a “sleeper” county (Mercer). There have been some absolutely gigantic deer harvested in this county, and in this neighborhood, in recent years, and it’s likely one of the best areas to hunt in the mid-west that somehow you still haven’t heard of. An access road (easement) brings you back down a long lane to enter the property from the southeast, taking you completely out of view from any road. You’ll feel like you’ve entered another world. This farm makes up the heart of an over-sized section and has over a mile of Edwards River frontage. Bottom land consists of walnut, ash, cottonwood, maple, willows and brush, providing thick cover and some future timber value. A nearly 50 acre irregularly shaped CRP field winds through the trees and has thick grasses and planted oak seedlings. Rut sign and trails are everywhere, with huge rubs and scrapes still apparent in late winter. Over 15 acres are currently enrolled in CRP with a beautiful stand of tall prairie grasses, and a small hidden pond in the middle, offering outstanding habitat for upland birds, turkeys and bedding deer. Multiple food plot sites are ready to be worked and planted this season without sacrificing tillable. And speaking of tillable, there are ~30 acres of good quality row crop that have an average PI of 125! Power was previously brought back to this property from the road, and the poles and overhead lines are still present. (Currently investigating what it takes to reconnect service.) This is a diverse farm with top tier trophy whitetail hunting potential, and currently generating ~$25,000 per year in passive income. Located 25 minutes south of Quad Cities International Airport.
