Price: Pending
Acreage: 135
County: Clayton
State: Iowa

Property Description

Clayton County, Iowa is one of the top 20 producing counties in the entire country for Boone and Crockett whitetail entries and land in this county historically gets held tightly to the vest. Here is your opportunity to own 135 acres in one of the top producing trophy whitetail locations around. Just a few miles southeast of Elgin, Iowa, and a mile from the Turkey River is this gorgeous and secluded hunt-ready farm! This farm has a mix of bedding cover, crop ground, and hardwood timber with access from a dead-end road that ends at the north end of the farm. The farm networks with several other large timber complexes in the area and is in the middle of a section away from any roads, traffic, homes, or any human intrusion.

There are 66 acres of active tillable on the farm being cash rented for the 2022 season. This also provides a large food source to keep wildlife on the farm and nearby throughout the entire season. The new buyer could continue to cash rent or farm it or could also use the opportunity to utilize some or all of the acres in a CRP program. A trail system throughout the farm gives one a smooth and quiet path to all areas of the farm. The marketable timber and logging potential is notable with several stands of large walnut, white oak, black oak, red oak, black cherry, and hickory present in numerous locations on the farm. Many white oaks on the ridges around the tillable field provide a whitetail with one of their most desired food sources, acorns, and this farm has a lot of them.

The northern parts of the farm are timber/pasture with evergreen patches that provide great bedding cover for wildlife. Several very large rubs were seen in and around these locations and the trails were heavily beaten with traffic from deer moving from bedding cover to food sources. This farm is jammed pack full of turkey and deer sign all throughout and large numbers of both deer and turkey were seen while photographing the farm. With the right food plots strategically placed this farm has all the things necessary to keep big bucks on the farm year-round. A creek that meanders its way through the farm would be a great feeder creek for a pond to be built and is also a great source of water for wildlife.

Farms like this rarely hit the open market and are typically held from generation to generation. Here is a perfect opportunity for someone wanting to own a true northeast Iowa trophy hunting paradise!
