Bidding Per Acre x Amount of Acres. Offered in 1 Tract. $50 bid increments.


Deer and turkey hunters!  Rarely does the opportunity come along to buy such a quality hunting spot in just a 20-acre parcel!  Generally you need “big acres” to shoot big deer; this parcel is the exception.  Let me tell you why this piece is unique and an excellent opportunity for someone with not necessarily deep pockets to invest in a deer patch.  This parcel sets pretty much in the center of the section and the closest road is 400 yards away.  The property has a 20’ easement down and existing lane for access.

The parcel is all wooded and has a small creek centrally located going from north to south through the property making for a fantastic funnel.  The narrowest wooded spot of this drainage is on this parcel and is the primary travel corridor.  This area is perfect wildlife habitat broken ground with upland timber, bottomland timber, CRP and Ag fields all nicely mixed, perfect big buck growing area!  Illinois Dept. of Natural Resources has a big chunk of land along the Embarras River (Chauncey Marsh) which is just 1 mile to the southwest of this property.  The huge amount of timber, swamps and brush along the river insure the age structure of deer in the area. In addition, there are several very large land owners owning big blocks of land and more specifically timber land, some larger than the State property and all within 2 miles of this property.  I want you to look at the 5-mile radius map of this property. This little 20 acres sets right in the heart of some of the best deer habitat in the country; it is a pinch point within this area and has good access.  No time or money for food plots?  That's okay with this parcel; its a travel corridor and not needed.  Crawford County is a sleeper county for big deer btw!  When looking at the parcel, I saw strutters in nearby fields and one vociferous tom was talking on the south end of this parcel.  Deer, turkey, access, great area all in one small parcel of land!
