Big bucks love security, and this place is like Fort Knox. The owner’s had a select cut tree harvest done 7 years ago and it really opened up the canopy to let the sunlight hit the forest floor. There are pockets of bedding throughout the tract because of it with a great trail system that has been maintained all year long. The trail system will act as great access throughout the property to get to stand locations to hunt any type of wind. On the south side of the property is a hidden 3.5 acre Ag field that is currently being cash rented for $150 an acre. This income can pay for the property tax, wild game tags, etc. It could also be used for a food plot as well. Imagine sitting over 3.5 acres of beans with a North wind in the late season. Dry Fork creek runs across the property on the Northern end. Believe it or not, Dry Fork is a terrible name, because even with the drought conditions seen by most of the State this summer it held plenty of water for wildlife. The amount of turkey feathers seen scattered on the ground along the south side of the creek leads me to believe they are heavily roosting there. Keep the wide trails mowed down and watch the turkeys pitch down into your lap in the Spring. Sit along the creek during the rut and see how many bucks use it to scent check for does around the multiple bedding sites.
A legal easement runs from the county road to the West and into the Southwest corner of the property. This tract is secluded from county traffic, so the deer and turkey will feel comfortable moving through at any time of day.
Mineral rights will not transfer.
Annual taxes were $137.80 in 2022.
