Property Description

Fantastic opportunity to own a large recreational tract in southern Rock County, Wisconsin.

This one-of-a-kind property features a diverse range of habitats, encompassing natural wetlands, native prairie grasses, and patches of mature hardwood timber. This combination offers the perfect setting for thriving wildlife populations ranging from ducks, geese, doves, turkeys, and whitetail deer.

This tract features a perpetual conservation easement through the Wetland Reserve Program. The WRP program ensures the perpetuity of the property's wetlands, safeguarding the natural habitat and providing a haven for diverse plant and animal species. The conservation easement makes up the majority of the 326.7 +/- acres, however, there are portions of the property not enrolled in the program, which offers additional opportunities in addition to recreation. One of which is a 1.5 +/- acre potential build site located in the west-central portion of the property. (The listing agent is working with the township and county to determine the potential to be built on.) This location features massive burr oaks providing a picturesque view and an abundance of shade. This spot has been very well maintained and as it sits would make for an ideal camping location. Additionally, a natural gas pipeline easement goes through the property and the location of which is not enrolled in the WRP program. This has provided food plot opportunities in the past ranging from standing corn for whitetails to plots designed for early-season dove hunting. The range of recreational opportunities this property holds truly is tremendous.

Multiple ponds dot the landscape offering premier waterfowl hunting opportunities. Whether you're an avid duck hunter or simply enjoy the beauty of waterfowl in their natural habitat, these ponds add an extra dimension to the property. Approximately 12 ponds exist, ranging in size from ¼ acre up to the stunning 8 acre pond in the center of the property. Fishing opportunities are known to exist in several of the ponds as well! In addition to all this, practical amenities include easy road access off West Saint Lawrence Ave and a well-maintained trail system allows for easy travel all across the property.

And one simply can’t overlook the history of quality whitetails on the property. The trail camera pictures speak for themselves, showing the property as a consistent producer of quality bucks. One trip through the property and it’s easy to see why they call it home. Much of the property features natural prairie grasses which provide an abundance of cover year-round. Several excellent pinch points exist providing for ideal stand locations. Additionally, the ponds provide ample water sources, as does the meandering year-round stream on the west side of the property. The property currently has a compatible use agreement in place which allows for approximately 3.5 acres (6 different locations) to be planted in food plots allowing you to attract deer year-round. Add all these items together and this property checks the boxes to hold and harvest mature whitetails!

Despite its seclusion, this property is conveniently located in close proximity to major cities.
