Property Description

Here is a rare opportunity to own one of the more lightly hunted properties in the #1 county in Missouri for Pope & Young registered bucks! This is the personal farm of Gordon Whittington, Editor of a popular whitetail magazine. He has had only two deer hunts here in the last 10 years! The first, in 2008. The second hunt was last season in 2017 and was aired on television this year. Both hunts yielded exceptional, mature bucks. Currently, 127 acres of the 150-acre property are enrolled in a perpetual conservation easement through the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP).

The acreage offers incredible diversity and provides perfect habitat elements to attract and hold large numbers of deer. The more open areas of the farm consist of waist-to-shoulder high grasses. There are hundreds of beds in this cover. The sheer number of deer on and around the perimeter is beyond impressive. The remaining 23 acres of the 150-acre property are pasture land and are outside the WRP program. There is no doubt that the wetland areas of the farm will attract large numbers of waterfowl.

Brush Creek runs diagonally through the north quarter of the farm and on the western border. With its location, a pump system could easily be installed to control water levels during drier years. The current owners have designated the area north of the creek as a sanctuary. This area has grown into a mix of big timber and early successional cover, providing everything a whitetail needs to make it to maturity. Gouged out game trails that run down the creek banks from the sanctuary show extensive use. 5% of the enrolled acreage is eligible to be made into wildlife food plots, with three separate plots already established. There are two large blocks of timber in the area: one northeast of this property and one on the west, southwest side. This property provides all the cover necessary to funnel deer activity between those lager blocks of timber, allowing for a steady flow of new deer passing through the farm.

For those who desire to build, there is road access with utilities available. The build site portion of the property lies on a hilltop that provides spectaculars views overlooking the creek bottom and wetland areas below. What a perfect place to build a cabin! The aerial map of this farm can only tell a fraction of just how special this place is. You have to see and experience it to appreciate what it holds. This is truly one of the finest recreational farms on the market! Call David Brothers at (660) 240-3243 today for your private showing.
