Brand New Listing!

Appanoose , 13 Acres, M/L -- ALL TIMBER (2.5 miles from Unionville, Iowa)

Easy Access - Great Building Sites -- Tremendous local deer and turkey population!

Marketable Timber -- Food plot spots, and more!

Priced at $49,900!

(That is less than the cost of many new pickup trucks these days! Which do you think will be worth more in a few years?)

 Note: the property across the road from this parcel is not as intrusive to this piece as it may appear here. Come check it out for yourself! There are a couple of great potential building sites from 25-150 yards off the road on those ridges! 

And Zero Taxes when enrolled in Forest Reserve Program!

This Property has Superior Potential written all over it!

Marketable Timber! Great whitetail trophy potential in this area!

Property Comes with a camper that is ready for your weekend stays!

  It is really, really hard to find quality smaller parcels that have great hunting potential along with great access, great building site locations and having power and rural water right adjacent to or on the site!  You can have your cake and eat it too with this tract!

Yes -- this property has a couple of areas on the ridges that could be cleared for food plots -- and -- Yes -- these areas would be all but invisible from the road or neighbors! 

Lots of IDNR public state forest hunting land in the immediate area, for plenty of other places to roam -- however, you will have the "ace in the whole" by having your own private retreat for yourself and the whitetails!  From what I have seen, the pressure on the public areas in this area is as light as it gets....very light pressure on many of the public areas in this part of the state, especially during the bow season.

With two big ridges and several drainages all on this one small property there should be lots of rut-time movement of bucks cruising this place -- Check the layout amongst nearby lands.  Tons of great habitat and the bucks won't know the borders during the rut.  This place should hunt like a much bigger parcel!

Call Rich 641-919-9026 to get this one before it slips away!

*24.25 Acres, M/L Wapello, county (1 mile from Ottumwa!)

Superior Grade Investment Tract -- Killer Goose Hunting Property Too!!!

Priced to sell at just $140,000! Over 80% CSR 79 soils! 

Bringing in $300 per acre in crop rent! That is $7200 per year!

This land could be your land! Pan-flat farm ground showing excellent quality soils and a great return! A TON of Canada Geese fly over this farm along this section of river, year-round too -- so some great prospective goose hunting on this one too!

  Be sure to check out the Soils Data Report compiled specifically for this farm!

Check out the Large Aerial Here!

This according to the Iowa Land Soils Report for 2013:

Land with a CSR of 75 or more has an average dollar price per CSR point of $139 and an average sale price per acre of $11,081, land with a CSR between 55 and 74 has an average dollar price per CSR point of $113 and an average sale price per acre of $7,189 and land with a CSR of 54 or less has an average dollar price per CSR point of $106 and an average sale price per acre of $4,046.

According to soils Data records/Reports on this farm:

 Soils consists of about 83-85% Nodaway Silt Loam soils which are 79 CSR

Soils consist of about 15% Landes Fine Sandy Loam soils which are 29 CSR

According to sales data from 2013 on 450 farms across Iowa, this farm should price out at $242,897 on average statewide for land of this quality according to Iowa Land Sales Report Data. 

Price is only $140,000!

That is a 5.1% return!  Which means you can borrow money at the standard 4+ percent right now and put money in your pocket each month -- after paying the lender -- on this farm! More money coming in than going out makes a whole lot of sense to me and that is why this is a great investment. It isn't easy find land of this quality at this price..in fact it is almost impossible!

And -- check out the above video clip for an around the farm, on the ground, look at things:

Here is a really nice hunting/investment tract that would also make an ideal building site!

Lots of whitetails here -- turkeys too -- and trophy potential is very good for a property this size. Surrounded by managed land and/or crop ground,

so the whitetails have not only what they need to survive -- but to thrive!


Examine these features:

  • Great food plot areas (the north end of that middle crop field would be perfect and is hidden from view)
  • Lots of nicely distributed eastern red cedars for super bedding/thermal/sanctuary cover! (I jumped at least a dozen whitetails when I walked it Feb 22, 2014)
  • Year-round really nice stream courses east/west across parcel providing ample water for all sorts of wildlife -- And big deer are going to cruise this stream corridor during the rut on a routine basis!
  • The surrounding properties provide a good mix of cover and food, ensuring that whitetails -- and trophies -- should be abundant on a widespread basis across the area.
  • The farm is laid out well for many stand sites for both morning and evening hunts, taking full advantage of various wind directions 
  • There are multiple sites here to build that dream home -- with power and rural water available along the road.
  • Estimated farm revenue from the estimated 22 tillable crop acres is $3300-$4300 per year -- the farm is set to go into soybeans for the 2014 crop season

Situated in the heart of some of the wildest and most remote forestland Iowa has to offer!   

Just check out the maps/aerials here and see for yourself!

Check out the Movie Brief Here!

 A super size at a super price! Location, Location, Location! This place offers big woods, giant property hunting on just 17 acres and change!

Access is very limited into most of the vast array of big woods timberland that you see on the map -- making for remote low-pressure hunting on this tract!  Access this parcel is south of the river, off a road along a drainage dike.   A 30 second paddle by kayak straight accross the river takes you to the north side for easy and dead silent entry into the heart of the property!  This is a very effective tactic for sneaking in on bucks!  And don't forget you can kayak up and down the river for duck/goose hunting and/or fishing!  (Words of note: Sportsman's kayaks today are super stable, easy to paddle and haul a lot of weight and gear and paddle like a feather blowing across a pond! They aren't tippy like yesteryear models and in fact one can fish or paddle even standing up! I use one allot!)

This property should hunt HUGE with it's proximity to hundreds upon hundreds of acres of continuous big timber! 

Big bucks cruise through this parcel as they do through all the rest -- not knowing that it is only 17.59 acres -- expect this property to hunt like one many times bigger!  Bucks don't know borders!  And cruising they will come! 

This tract should offer outstanding opportunities for waterfowl -- as the whole region is filled with old wetland areas, sloughs, oxbows, channel cuts, and pot holes. The river itself is a huge flyway for all sorts of migratory birds -- not just ducks and geese. The Mississippi River is just a few miles downstream!

And don't forget : You can fish for walleye, northern pike, channel cat, flathead cat, smallmouth bass, white bass, wipers and more!

This property would make a fantastic site to build that country home of your dreams! 

The owner says this property is organic and would make a great place for someone to start up a gardening/market business, raise a few chickens, goats, pigs, horses or whatever you may desire (the present owners have it set up for a few horses). The site appears suitable for wetland establishment too. Establish a wetland and watch the wildlife from your newly constructed home of your dreams! It could all be possible here -- and just a few miles south of Fairfield, Iowa! LOTS of lightly hunted publc hunting land just down the road a couple of miles. Fantastic hunting area, for sure, with lots of giant whitetails coming out of this area of the state! 

The property presently has an older 2 bedroom hoom of approximately 960 square feet. There are some outside storage buildings as well (perfect for protecting livestock from the weather and/or storing feed). The present home is currently rented out and is producing $6,000 per year. Own this property -- for the asking price -- and receive a 4.55% return on your initial investment by renting it out!  That is more money coming in than going out as interest for a standard bank loan! Why not buy? The house is older and does need TLC -- the perfect fixer-upper to convert into a possible home of your dreams! Or build -- buyer's choice! Take a look before it is gone!

The House:

Built in 1974 (manufactured home) 

Features hardwood flooring (real, not laminate flooring) and ceramic tile (in kitchen) 

3 bedroom and 1 full bath 

Approximately 1250 sq ft of living space, not including porch or additional enclosed storage room/area of approx. 580 sq feet 

Central Air with electric baseboard heating (individual baseboards in different rooms can be temperature adjusted to personal taste) 

This property also has a seperate garage area and Mortan-style tin building for storage options galore 

Native Prairie is here too!: 

The owner has worked HARD to re-establish native prairie habitat in the form of native oak/savanna type ecosystem.  This is a RARE ecosystem in the midwest anymore and the benefits are incredible wildlife attractiveness to this habitat and a large diverse array of plants and animals using the system -- many types of butterflies and bird species utilize this native habitat that is all but lost and big bucks love bedding in this thick prairie habitat.  Oak savanna makes a superb chasing area just before the rut's peak too!  The owner also established a nice trail system around the property for ease of access.

Here is an incredible property for the $$$!  You can't duplicate this property for the asking price and the setting is as beautfiul as you might imagine! Envision yourself in this comfortable 3 bedroom family home, sipping a choice beverage, in the 3-season screened porch, as the sun drops down over the tree tops, leaving waves of brilliant orangish-red streaks in it's wake -- as a sleek doe and a couple of fawns slip across the backyard, down toward the lake for a sunset sip drink.  That sort of thing happens pretty much daily here -- the view is as good as it gets and native Iowa wildlife are very abundant (deer and turkey are thick -- pheasants are here too).  And who said 34 acres is not enough to shoot a big buck in Iowa?  I'm betting that a guy who hunts this one every year will get a crack at something wearing impressive headgear.  The owner has seen and/or had reports of bucks in the 190 range here.  How is the fishing, you ask?  GIANT crappie -- many crappie in the 13-16 inch range have been and are regualarly taken -- with some crappie up to 17 inches ( yes, you heard me right -- 17 inches!)   Huge bluegill and big bass are common here as well.  It is a fisherman's dream lake!

  • Tucked into some of the best whitetail habitat around and adjoining a 770-acre (that’s right – 770 acre!) wildlife refuge, this property carries the benefits of a MUCH, MUCH larger tract. 
  • The old saying of ‘Location, Location, Location’… really rings true on this one.Rare barely begins to describe the opportunity to own a property conjoining a wildlife refuge in Iowa, let alone one that is less than 20 miles from Des Moines.How often does one get a guarantee of who their neighbor will be, let alone a neighbor that doesn’t allow any bucks to be shot?

  • Top-notch whitetail genetics, this property will surprise year-end and year-out with an array of antler traits.

Here is a property that has been managed for the past 7 years to produce big bucks. And, it is really starting to show it's stuff!


Check out these features:

  • Thick, gnarly cover -- the kind of stuff bucks must have to survive. Ideal security cover! 
  • Oak Ridges -- HUGE bur oaks line the short, narrow, ridges that rise above wooded flats and drainages. Perfect ambush sites to catch cruising bucks during the rut! 
  • Creek Drainages meander through this parcel providing travel corridors and water sources year-round 
  • AWESOME food plots sites -- 3 of them -- to grow lush grains, clovers, turnips, etc., to really hold the local deer and pull in bucks from far-off during the rut and winter seasons! 
  • Lots of natural, native, food sources on this property in the form of low-lying native browse, seasonally abundant acorns, and locust pods for winter deer attraction. 
  • This property is surrounded by cover sources and large crop fields -- The HOME BASE for a large portion of the deer in this area seems to be this property. They should feed in YOUR PLOTS before heading out to the large grain fields at dark to feed at night. 
  • Power and water at the road! 
  • 35-40 minutes from Des Moines! 
  • The owner reports LOTS of buck rutting action during daylight hours -- I can see why after looking at this one -- cover, cover, cover, excellent food sources, water and perfect little openings scattered about for chasing areas. 
  • Want to see LOTS of BIG RUBS? Come look at this property! It's obvious that lots of large caliber bucks spend a lot of time on this one! 
  • Priced at $211,325 or just $1975/Acre!

Here is that perfect tract of timber ground that so many of you have been asking for: These are hard to find!

Look at these features:

  • SOLID mature timber -- lots of big beautiful white and red oaks here! 
  • Several ridges to hang a stand on-- and to arrow one of those Giant "Oak Ridge Boys" of fall! 
  • Stocked pond! Yes, this piece has a pond stocked with bass and bluegill. It is very remote and it's fish may have never seen a lure!

  • Property is bordered by large tracts of state forest ground on all sides. HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of acres of big timber all around! 
  • One could clear out a small area on this parcel and create a food plot that should become swamped with deer and turkey!

Why should you sell with us?

Give me a call or send me an email with your request for sellers information and I'll give you all the details why you NEED to list with us!




Why should you buy from us?

We sell carefully selected properties in key areas with certain goals in mind, i.e., big buck production, upland birds, turkeys, etc. All IWHS owned properties are managed from top to bottom by us. Remember: we are full-time professional wildlife land managers -- not just someone here to sell you a property! We want to see and help you, if desired, turn your property purchase into the dream wildlife parcel you've always wanted! And there is so much more to trophy buck and wild game management than just food plots!!!! We hope you'll shop around. If you do, you'll notice other properties around the state advertised for as much or more than ours and, by and large, are totally unmanaged. Many are simply a number on a list to a real estate agent. When you buy an IWHS property, you don't get a "plain jane" piece of unmanaged, over-grazed ground off a list, but rather a turn-key hunting and wildlife parcel managed from timber to prairie to food plot! (# sign next to listing indicates that property is an IWHS property)

NOTE: All # listings also designated with **symbols adjacent the listing header are owned and managed by IWHS and come with our FREE extensive, comprehensive, wildlife consulting plan prepared by our staff (includes written plan and video). Iowa Wildlife Habitat Services (IWHS) gurantees, which may be verified by inspection, the aucthenticity of the photos representing it's properties!


$$$Payment Estimate feature is meant for payment estimations only and is in no way a guarantee of actual numbers. However, numbers used are actual from farm data provided to us. Terms/rates used as examples can and do change from lender to lender and depend upon various borrower specific and farm specific factors. However -- numbers given to represent bank loan terms are meant to reflect current market conditions and rates that may indeed to be likely. Further, estimates given are estimates only but are meant to be as accurate and as current as possible to provide a realistic example of probable mortgage expense as related to farm income. Not all payment estimates include real estate taxes. Real estate taxes are included in examples where real estate tax data has been supplied to us. Also note: farm income may be shown as monthly instead of annually in some cases. However, actual payments may occur only on an annual or semi-annual basis. Income may be shown as paid monthly to make an easier comparison to monthly mortgage payments. Also note that annual or semi annual mortgage payments, instead of monthly, are fairly common as well.
