Dynamic Terrain, Top Shelf Management, and World Class Whitetail Hunting! Located in Monroe County, Iowa lies “A Bowhunters Paradise”…. This turnkey 588 +/- deeded acre whitetail mecca, was set up for the sole purpose of bowhunting world class whitetails. The terrain, minimal pressure, engineered food plot designs, bulletproof entry and exit stand access, interior trail system, eight redneck tower blinds, and a ONE OF A KIND QDM managed neighborhood make up the short list of what makes this farm dynamic to the serious whitetail manager. Located in a very top end neighborhood, where neighboring landowners work together to manage quality age structure, makes this area super special in many ways.
Walk out your back door and experience some of the best whitetail hunting the Midwest has to offer. As you tour the farm, you will see big, hardwood timber oak ridges, CRP acres, tillable farmland acres, thick bedding thickets created by TSI improvements, and abundant cover. With years of hard work spent improving the habitat, the cover on this farm is one that you have to see in person to truly appreciate. The terrain creates numerous bottleneck pitch points deep in the bottoms allowing for close range encounters on those crisp November mornings. The road access allows for seamless entry and exit routes perfect for an easy in and out evening ambush with exterior food plots staged on ridge tops. Interior clover, tuber, and cereal grain food plots with edging transitioning to thick creek bottom cover allow the avid bowhunter endless possibilities for early season through November rut hunts, knowing any minute a giant could appear. Late season grain (corn, bean, and sorghum) plots have been planted in secluded locations close to cover to allow deer to bed close and utilize grains to rebuild after the tough rut conditions. It’s not uncommon to see 40 to 60 deer in the field during late season hunts on this farm. The countless amount of sheds, trail camera photos, and video footage make the history on this farm unmatched on the market. The idea was simple, but the work was not. Quality is king when it comes to premier hunting farms, and this is one of the best whitetail deer farms to ever hit the market.
