Property Description

Rarely do you find a property that truly offers the best of all worlds. For whitetail hunters, this farm has consistently produced giant bucks and has been strictly managed for the last ten years. For anglers, the spring-fed ten-acre D Butin Lake, known locally as Bear Lake, has been established for 57 years and is loaded with giant crappie, largemouth, and channel cats. For bird hunters, this farm has an abundance of quail that thrive in the recently enrolled CRP acres and surrounding agriculture fields. The seller is currently utilizing five acres and the greenhouse for garden produce.

The lodge is quite accommodating, boasting three large bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a finished walkout basement, an updated kitchen and a covered deck overlooking the lake. A mini version of the lodge overlooks the lake, providing a great place for overnight guests. Additionally, there is a large constructed metal shop with concrete floors and electricity for equipment storage. A secondary building, referred to as the clubhouse, offers a climate controlled environment, a kitchen and a bar top perfect for hosting social gatherings.

A fascinating and unique feature of the property is that it has been the home to over 390 National and State Champion Golden Retrievers, English Pointers and Gordon Setters. From the mid-1980s through the early 2000s, this farm has been the host to field dog trials and has been featured in numerous publications. When asked why this farm was so special when it comes to training dogs, the seller replied, “With the variety of terrain [here], it is easy to replicate every hunting scenario a dog needs to be prepared for.”

This farm is truly one of a kind! Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to own a farm of such high caliber. Please call Bobby at (816) 392-5515 today for additional information or to schedule a private tour.
