Fantastic deer and waterfowl hunting located in Southern Illinois near Horseshoe Lake. The property is 40 acres, 30 acres of which is in the WRP program, and the balance is wooded and not in any type of program. The 30 acres of WRP has a pit and a blind on it. The pit is a 5-man tank with concrete floor and an outside underground compartment capable of housing a 100-gallon propane bottle or a small generator in case you need to run an ice eater. The blind is nice sized and 6 guys can easily shoot out of it. The flooded area is 12 acres of water with 7 to 8 acres of corn planted in it. The property is also improved with a 17” well and the current owner rents a centrifugal pump to flood the area. The cost is roughly $1,000 a year and takes about 3 days to pump full. A local farmer has kept the levees mowed and has planted the crops for the owners. The property butts up to the south end of Horseshoe Lake Conservation Area and is under a mile from the lake itself.

This property adjoins around 1,000 acres of timber and sloughs that come duck season becomes a refugee for the deer. Access is a recorded 25-foot easement to the property, and the owner reports having great like-minded neighbors make the entire are better for all. Come take a peek; there are not many quality hunting 40’s for both waterfowl and whitetail but here is one of them!
