Call Rich at 641-919-9026 or email [email protected] to see this awesome parcel before it is too late!

TONS of work has been done on this undeniably gorgeous Iowa farm over the last 10 years to create the best whitetail habitat from corner to corner.

This IS NOT your average Iowa farm! 

ALL of the work has been done and it’s ready for you to pursue a giant Iowa buck!  

The farm sits right in the heart of some of the most chosen whitetail trophy ground on the planet, right along the famed Des Moines River corridor.

This owner has maintained a 160″ and 4-year-old minimum on the bucks harvested. 

Bucks scoring 166, 167, 163, 177, 186 and 184 have been harvested in the last 10 years! 

Some bucks die of old age here!   

What more could you ask for on 57 acres?

(Most farms 10x the size can’t boast the same track record as this farm)!

Description:

This parcel is tucked away off the main road and not visible from any road!

With approximately 37 acres of highly managed forest and 20 acres of highly managed open ground, this farm has the perfect blend of habitat.

The forest has been professionally managed with timber stand improvement, crop tree release.   (This is done to maximize acorn production — up to 10x normal — to maximize log quality, and to maximize the speed of growth of selected oaks — up to 2x).  This forestry management prescription drastically increases the value of the forestland from an economic standpoint and as a wildlife attractor/producer.  (More acorn production means deer/turkey spend more time on your land vs. neighboring lands:)

All forest work has been done in conjunction with the Iowa DNR forestry department.  All work is part of a timber stand improvement, (tsi), and land stewardship plan.

The forest consists predominately of oak species: white oak, black oak, red oak, shingle oak, swamp white oak and bur oak.  There are also walnut, cottonwood, shagbark hickory, bitternut hickory, Siberian elm, white elm, ironwood, eastern red cedar, honey locust, redbud,  sycamore, etc.  (Marketable timber is present).

The open ground has been managed to restore Iowa’s native and nearly extinct tallgrass prairie habitat.  These areas have been planted to big bluestem, Indian grass, switchgrass, prairie dropseed, little bluestem, and other prairie grasses and dozens of prairie wildflowers.

These tall grasses are the perfect bedding areas of giant bucks and provide ideal nesting and security cover for all game including wild turkey, pheasants, and quail.   (The owner has established a good native pheasant and quail population through these plantings).

Small game like rabbits, are extremely abundant here too and provide additional hunting opportunity.  Hundreds of cedar trees have been planted to provide additional security and thermal cover for all wildlife.

Perfect, easy, gravel, easement, access!  (permanent 20ft wide easement)

 

Noted Features:

  • 37 Acres of timber — all have been professionally managed with timber stand improvement.
  • 20 Acres of field space — all have been managed for food plot space or for tallgrass prairie reestablishment. (a prime whitetail bedding cover and turkey nesting cover — and upland game/bird habitat as well)!
  • Excellent deer numbers with bucks over 170 inches seen on this farm every year. (Six bucks over 163 inches harvested in the last decade, with three of these over 177 inches!)
  • A large neighboring farm managed for many years for quality whitetails.
  • At least 2 bucks harvested were over 8 years old and bucks can and do die of old age here!
  • Absolutely proven whitetail genetics here!
  • Year-round water source.
  • Some incredible building sites!  (power and rural water at the along the first part of the easement lane)
  • Established food plot acres — 3 plot locations this year with clover and turnips.
  • Turkey hunting is outstanding as well with birds getting big and old on this farm.  Nesting habitat has been raised through the roof with the establishment of tall native grassland habitat (big bluestem, Indian grass, switchgrass, etc.).   A 29-pound gobbler was taken in the spring of 2019!
  • Established sanctuary area for whitetails.
  • Whitetail genetics reveal themselves here with a mix of antler characteristics:  wide, narrow and tall, heavy, and non-typical antlers all show up depending upon the year!
  • Real estate taxes run $750 per year but could be reduced by putting the forested acres into the Iowa Forest Reserve Program.

Call Rich at 641-919-9026 or email [email protected] to see this awesome property or to place an offer to hunt on this season and before it disappears!

Note:  This property is broker owned and has been managed by Iowa Wildlife Habitat Services for 10-years.

Description:

Here it is!

The dream parcel for so many folks!

It’s what I’ve been asked for many times over a smaller parcel that offers fishing, hunting, photography and has a place to build.

Well…this is it!

But, not only does it offer these things it offers them in premium fashion.

This isn’t just any place to fish — it just may be one of the finest private waters to fish in this region!

The owner reports that it is loaded with big bass, big sunfish, catfish, and giant crappies — it’s even got some big walleye and newly stocked perch too!

This isn’t your typical “back forty” farm pond either!  This is a 6.5-acre pond/lake that the owner reports being 22 feet deep!

The lake has a long history of outstanding fishing, is nicely landscaped, and sits in its own private retreat-type setting — close to town but you will not hear anything except wildlife here!

The setting is pure serenity and the access to the water is easy with gently shoreline frontage and two docks for your boats!

And there is a fantastic place to build that new home or log cabin (or to just park your RV to camp!).  This site has a very gentle grade right down to the water’s edge.  It has it’s own a lane that lies approximately 2/10 of a mile off of the county gravel road  (there are power and rural water available at the road).

And then there’s the hunting!  (Though this property is not in a floodplain and is not in an area that floods from the river, it is just 1/4 mile from the Skunk River and the wildlife that roam its corridor — big deer!)

Yes, it’s a smaller parcel but the hunting can be big here.

Huge whitetails roam the region and are taken every year.

The property offers mixed habitat with a permanent water source — of course — and plenty of trees and shrubs to draw those whitetails!

And there is no shortage of cropland in the immediate area.  This acts like a giant deer magnet!

Are upland birds — or perhaps wild turkey — more your style?

All of these use the property and numbers of these species can be fantastic in this area.

And, of course — there are the waterfowl.  Hunt ducks and/or geese right on your own lake!

(Wapello, Co. just 10 miles from Ottumwa)

(Proven incredible trophy deer production and a site for a 5.6 Acre pond!  Some of the best views in southern Iowa right out your living room window!)

(Only 10 Miles from Ottumwa or about 25 miles to Fairfield)

A truly one-of-a-kind property!

5-bedroom, 5 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces!  (2 are 1/2 bathrooms)

$510,000 (Priced to SELL Quickly and is WAY under the last appraisal value!)

Hunter’s, Nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts  This is your dream home! 

Just of the few of the features include:

  • Managed for many years to be the ultimate wildlife mecca!  Some of the biggest deer and turkey in SE Iowa live here due to the management of this and surrounding ground!
  • Peaceful remote setting 1/4 off the road — yet quick easy access to town.
  • 6 fireplaces throughout.  5 easy-to-use propane and with stone and custom mantles and one the wood-fired pizza oven (sort of a fireplace though it’s designed not to add too much heat to the kitchen.
  • Full chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances and porcelain tile throughout
  • Italian Brick-Oven Wood-Fired Pizza Oven (right in the kitchen!)
  • Imported Brazilian soapstone countertops!
  • 3-season porch.
  • Incredible views out all of the windows — rolling prairie, wooded hills and valleys!
  • hand-laid stone walls!
  • Giant master bath with heated soaker tub and stone walls
  • Geothermal heating and air
  • Giant 3 stall, heated, garage!
  • Outside prairie planted to 4 types of native tallgrass prairie grasses as well as over 100 different types of native prairie flowers!  See all sorts of songbirds and butterflies as well as hummingbirds galore!

The land features a 5.6 Acre lake site – the lake site diagrammed and engineered by one of the top engineering firms in the region and would be approximately 30 feet deep if desired to put in.

And the land….

The land, simply put, has proven to be one of the top smaller hunting tracts in southeast Iowa!    Several bucks have been taken scoring over 165 and up to 185 Boone and Crockett inches in the last 10 years alone.  And there are turkeys galore – pheasants too! (A 29-pound gobbler shot on the farm this spring!)  Be to check out the photos!

That’s right a small tract that hunts BIG! 

It’s better to have a small tract in the right place than a large tract in the wrong place; this small tract is definitely in the right place! 

One quick look at any aerial reveals a huge timbered draw that acts as a funnel for traveling bucks to and from larger tracts of timber in both directions.  This funnel gets traveled by most of the bucks in the region during the rut!  And there is a nice year-round stream that trickles right through the middle of the land.   Rest assured there are multitudes of stand site options and lots of different isolated field areas for various food plots!  Some of which you can see from the house — pattern bucks by watching them out your living room window!

And the house….

The house has tons of custom features built-in that you just won’t find in many other homes!

The 1998 cedar-sided ranch home features a rustic yet modern look (3226 square foot upstairs area and another 3226 square feet of mostly finished basement area).

It has a very open floor plan with stunning hickory flooring with cherry trim throughout the main living space and hallway.

The main living area features a soaring cathedral ceiling, with hand-laid stone walls on two sides. The space is light and bright with all of the windows overlooking the rolling wooded Des Moines river valley terrain and 2 extra skylights peeking down through the ceiling doesn’t hurt anything either (and it looks incredible!).

The ceiling is lined with white pine cut from a forest in northeastern Iowa.

There is a huge mantel over the gas fireplace there. The mantle was hand-cut from a 150-year-old Iowa cedar tree and custom installed over the fireplace.

There is another such mantel over a similar fireplace in the sitting room and yet another such mantel – this one serving as a buffet table – on a rock wall next to the dining room table under the trey ceiling there.

Just off the dining area, you’ll find a large screened-in porch  – perfect for enjoying those quiet summer evenings with a cool drink!

Easy to clean and maintain porcelain tile makes up the kitchen and sitting room area flooring as well as the front, rear, and 3-season porch doorway areas.

Enter the elaborate full chef’s kitchen from the living area through the large entrance framed by beams from a 100-year-old giant Iowa white oak tree!   

Get ready to cook up restaurant quality meals, with either the double Kitchen Aid oven or the 5 burner Kitchen Aid gas stove top!

Or, if you prefer, you can fire up the wood-fired Italian Pizza Oven that is right in your Kitchen!  (You heard me right)!  Yes, you can cook up some of the best “Brick Oven” pizza’s in the world, – cook a pizza at over 700 degrees in just a couple of minutes right in your kitchen all year long!  Or, you can roast various meats, bake beans, or pies, or all kinds of breads right in your own wood-fired pizza oven! Everything comes out moist and with that perfect campfire taste!  It really does!  

The kitchen cabinets are knotty hickory with all drawers and cabinetry featuring soft-close technology.

The countertops are imported Brazilian soapstone.  The color is called “Stormy Black”.   This soapstone is one of the hardest on the market and is one of the best surfaces to use for cooking. There is no required maintenance and it will not stain! 

 Soapstone countertops will outlast any human and do not wear out. It is also considered “sealed” so that it cannot harbor potential harmful food-borne bacteria as can granite and some other surfaces. It is one of the most preferred countertops by chefs and others who really cook!

The kitchen sinks are all soapstone and are custom made and are huge.  So don’t worry about having big pots and pans — these sinks will handle them!  The kitchen faucets — including one on the island are all touch on touch off for the ultimate ease of use when your hands are full!  (The kitchen features all modern quality stainless steel appliances and there are even two huge refrigerators! Well over 50 cubic feet of refrigerated storage space in the kitchen!

There is a cedar sided “green room” just outside the kitchen that features lots of windows and electric skylights that open and close with the simple flip of a switch

The green room is perfect for warming the body on those cold winter days or for starting seed for the garden in February!

On the other side of the kitchen is a perfect sitting area in front of a brick fireplace. A great place to have a cup of coffee while taking in some of the most spectacular scenery/views in southeast Iowa out the huge window overlooking the property!

Get things done in your own modern yet rustic wood-sided office located just outside the kitchen and the large main-floor laundry is just around the corner too.

Downstairs you will find a large open area for living space or for the kids, or guests, to possibly use for recreation space as well as another room perfect for watching TV or a movie. Just in front of this area is a nice wet bar complete with sink and refrigerator. There are two large bedrooms downstairs (one non-conforming – having no ingress/egress window). And, there is a large storage room and laundry area as well as a large furnace room and two more storage areas.

Attached to the house is a large, heated, 3 car garage (1228 square feet) 

Real estate taxes are in the process of adjustment (because some acres were sold off from this recently).  The taxes should run about $5800 per year after adjustment (this is just an estimate but should be close).

There is approximately 2 miles of gravel to the lane.  The house sites exactly 1/4 mile down a nice level gravel lane.  This is great because there is no road noise and the house is free from floating gravel road dust!

Brand New Listing!

Lee County, Iowa 142 Acres (m/l)

 

Here is your chance to own a parcel that so many people have been asking for:  one that offers a great mix of investment-grade income farm ground, with rolling forested habitat that offers premium deer/turkey and upland game habitat!

That’s right!

Check out these features:

Approximately 78 acres crop/crp/hay ground with 54.56 acres presently in the Conservation Reserve Program  – CRP —  23.44 additional acres currently being farmed (being used as hay ground currently).  There would be a remaining 62 acres or so in rough timber ground and gullies — ideal deer and turkey habitat!

$11,122 per year in annual CRP payments (2 contracts).  One contract brings $8,026/yr through 2027 and the other brings in $3,096 through 2032.  CRP acres planted to excellent native grass upland habitat and upland oak/hickory tree plantings as well.  These provide superb wildlife thermal, feeding, and sanctuary habitat in addition to the excellent habitat already provided in the forested areas of the property.

I saw a boatload of deer sign on this property when I walked it!  I kicked up deer all over the farm.  It appears that it would hunt really well and would handle several hunters at one time (especially bowhunters).  This farm backs into some ideal habitat on the west side and there would be little doubt some big bucks would cruise this farm — especially during the rut.  Put some food plots in and this farm would be wicked!  There are excellent numbers of both deer and turkey in the area and trophy potential should be really good.

There are LOTS of great building sites on the farm with rural water and power running onto the northeast corner of the property and along the road.  Just 8-miles from Keokuk!

Potential pond and lake building sites!

Cropland acres lay well and are easy to access with farm equipment.

There is a mobile home on the northeast corner of the property along with a metal Morton-style building with concrete floors!  (One could use this as an ideal place to stay when you come to the farm to hunt, use it to live in, use it to live in while you build yourself your dream home, or just rent it out for additional income and tax deductions!  This should easily rent for $7,000-$8,000 per year!

Current income on this farm is well over $11,000 per year and could potentially, easily, be north of $20,000/year!  (Considering CRP income, hay ground and potentially renting out the mobile home space).

Current return on asking price is 2.4% per year.  But this could be 4-5% easily by renting out the mobile home.  (Plus, you would achieve additional tax breaks by using the mobile home and/building as a rental property which would make a potential return that much higher.  Thus, a basic 4.5% APR rate from a bank or credit union that may be used for a loan for the property could virtually be negated!)

Call Rich at 641-919-9026 to schedule a time to come see this great property before someone else buys it!

  • This land is currently being used for row crop farm ground and has been in a corn/bean rotation.  Current annual cash rents at $3200/year

Complete Farm Soils Report

Check out just some of the features:

This farm is THICK!  The owner had a lot of forest management done in this to benefit whitetails.  This work will also greatly benefit the upland bird populations with overall better nesting and security habitat.  He had lots of hinge-cutting done throughout.

If you are looking for a smaller farm that has the ability to hold A LOT of deer then look NO FARTHER!

You will not be disappointed in this farm!

MORE:

  • This Iowa Farm has the perfect 50-50 ratio of timber to open land.
  • Lots of stand sites for multiple wind directions.
  • This farm sets up great for hunting — walking into prevailing westerly winds to get to stands!
  • 30 Acres of timber, m/l. (some nice timber here)! (mix of white oak, black oak, red oak, shingle oak, walnut, hickory, ash, hackberry elm, and others., etc.)
  • 30 acres of crop, m/l. (land lays nice with easy access)!
  • This Iowa farm has $4202 per year in CRP income! ( 2 contracts expire in 2022 and 2027)
  • This property has a history of big buck activity and is in the direct vicinity of thousands of acres of highly managed land for trophy whitetails!   This Iowa farm lies within 1 mile of hundreds and hundreds of acres of land managed for giant bucks!
  • Tons of turkeys on this one too!  Pheasants are here too!
  • There are building sites with water and electricity on site!
  • There is already a 720 square foot, 20 x 36 metal pole building (almost brand new — constructed in 2013)
  •  There is an established food plot of a couple of acres or so as well as many other great food plot locations!
  • This Iowa property comes with a completely scent-containing Lick Creek Custom hunting blind.  These are the same custom blinds that our company pioneered with the help of the owner of Lick Creek Enterprises. I have used these blinds for the past 10 years and I feel there are no better blinds on the market (hunt out of them for a season, and we bet you will agree)!   Deer do not smell you in these and they are ideal for bowhunting out of. I’ve shot numerous 150-inch to 180-inch bucks out of my custom blinds — many bucks being straight downwind of my location and completely oblivious to a nearby human!  (And all of my blinds are on the ground).  Anyway — this farm comes with one and they are about $2K each.

46 Acres, m/l: Wapello County Iowa (Small farm with monster bucks and lots of INCOME!)

 

This farm offers a return of nearly 4% on the asking price! Plus, offers huge tax break benefits!  (This return would nearly negate the interest rate for a loan on the purchase — bringing the effective borrowing rate down close to near zero.  Or, give you an instant return on a cash deal)

So many people have asked for it so here it is: an awesome smaller southern Iowa farm with a history of monster deer and in a superb area that offers highly managed ground within 1/4 mile and superb genetics to consistently grow bucks over 170-inches!

This one also offers a unique opportunity to take advantage of some big tax saving advantages with a house on site that has been used as a rental property (a solid older farm house with a metal rough and vinyl siding).  The home is nothing fancy but is solid and always rents out super easy. The current tenants are fantastic!

 

Look at just some of these features:

 

  • In a great location just 8-miles or so from Ottumwa (near Agency, Iowa).  And just 25 minutes from Fairfield going the other way!
  • Very diverse timber — Giant old white oaks mixed with a blend of other oaks, hickory, and cedar thickets!
  • Property is surrounded by great whitetail habitat to the south, east and to the west.  The deer often ravel north to feed in the big grain fields that direction — which means they come right to and through this property toward you!
  • Big Cedars and small cedars!  These offer the best wintertime thermal cover that attracts whitetails from all over when the weather gets really snowy and cold!  Rare property that actually has a very good number of BIG cedars — awesome for stand sites!  Or, find a market for the wood and make $’s.  Cedar makes some very neat projects like fireplace mantels, shelves, etc.
  • Plenty of water on this property.  There is a small “frog pond” as well as water that seeps from the ground in most of the steep ravines.
  • Giant bucks have always been drawn to this property I think because of the steep ravines.  They can stay cool in the summer by staying in the bottoms of the ravines and the ravines make superb escape cover as well.
  • This property seems HUGE when you walk it!  Lots of up and down ravines and it is thick!
  • Lots of deer and turkey and there are some pheasant and quail as well.
  • 6-7 acres of field space.  These acres could easily be cash rented out to a farmer for an estimated $150 per acre per year == $1,000 per year (estimate).  The fields lay flat and are easy to farm and have great soils.  You could “food plot” them all if you wanted!
  • As mentioned, this property has a house on site (right adjacent the road so it does not impact the hunting in any way, shape, or form!  The home is 2 bedroom/1 bath with a large living room, kitchen and nice yard area (perfect garden spot).  New septic 3 years ago too!  This house has always been rented out and is SUPER easy to rent and the tenants are fantastic!  The house brings in $6600.00 per year or $550/mo.  Rent could easily be raised to over $600.  The house could easily be maintained as a rental or one could use it as a place to stay when they came to the property to hunt.  Or, one could live in the house while building a new one somewhere else on the site (there are several excellent building sites on this property and there is another spot with rural water and electric already established on the site!)
  • This property offers an awesome small field near the center of the property that is completely surrounded by timber.  Awesome food plot spot!
  • Several areas that appear to be perfect sites to build large deep ponds or small lakes!
  • Only one buck has been harvested from this property in the last 12 years!  The owner doesn’t get a chance to hunt it much which is why he is selling.  A buck that gross scored in the low 180’s was taken 4 years ago.  Bucks of this size and bigger are seen every year on this parcel!
  • Access to stands is almost always into the area’s prevailing SW winds!

Be sure to come see this farm before it is gone.  You won’t be disappointed!  Call Rich at 641-919-9026 or email us!  Note:  This property is owned by a licensed Iowa real estate broker.

76.36 Acres, m/l; Jefferson County, Iowa  (about 8-mi. south of Fairfield)

Here is a really nice piece of southern Iowa real estate!  It’s hard to find these highly desirable smaller tracts but you are looking at one here!  Don’t miss your opportunity with this one!  Don’t be fooled by the open area on the aerial photo!  This is all super tall grass and productive ground too!  It’s all great deer and/or waterfowl holding habitat or food production area!

Complete Farm Soil Report

Check out these features:  (Special note:  Allot of deer use this farm!)

Note:  When I walked this farm, I found many HEAVY trails leading into and out of this property from the big timber to the east.  There are all sorts of big oaks on this property in the upland areas (white, red, black, and burr most prominent).  These will, no doubt, be prime bowhunting locations when the acorns are falling.  Several of the timbered acres are thick and should hold allot of deer.  Great habitat surrounds this property and deer should travel through this property in the fall from all compass directions!  I can personally vouch for this area being able to produce giant bucks!

  • Some of the very best deer hunting in the region!
  • In a highly desirable region that has a history of big buck production!
  • Only 8-miles south of Fairfield Iowa!
  • Excellent access with machinery, as desired to get into fields — high and dry access areas too! (three different gated access of gravel road).
  • Income from CRP wetlands program pays $334.25 per acre/per year through 2027!  This is on 19.08 total CRP acres == $6377 total income from Conservation Reserve Program per year.
  • Just over 20 acres of productive tillable ground that are not currently in CRP that could be cash rented (and or turned into very productive food plots!)  This ground should bring a minimum of $2,000 per year and up to $5,000 or so per year (estimates for cash renting this land to area farmer). This money is in addition to the income from the CRP program.   Total farm income should easily be in the $8377 – $10,00 per year range. 
  • Deer hunting and turkey numbers are excellent here!
  • This farm has some pheasant and quail hunting too!
  • Tons of stand site options for multiple wind directions!
  • Walking into the often prevailing south and westerly winds to get to stand sites!
  • Building sites!
  • Established food plot that is isolated and completely hidden!
  • Lots more food plot options!
  • Adjacent over 400-acres of big woods public hunting (this area seems lightly hunted).

Lucas County, Iowa 51 Acres m/l  (Approx. 18 mi S. of Knoxville and 45 miles from Des Moines)

You say you always wanted to have that home in the country overlooking your own private six-acre lake? (Note: such a lake can easily cost $75,000 or more to build!)

Your wish has come true!

This is a dream Iowa property for sure!  Here’s what you get:

  • 1248 square foot ranch-style home that sits on a gentle slope with gorgeous sunset views to the west looking over the lake.
  • large yard that looks like a huge garden-of-Eden with all sorts of flowers and various plantings.  Don’t be surprised to wake up in the morning to a large bunch of
  • deer or turkey walking through the back yard along the lakeshore!
  • The home is a very solid home on a concrete foundation built-in 1974.  It has 3 full bedrooms and 1 full bathroom and a full basement.  Also, a beautiful porch area on which to sip your cup of coffee on in the morning!
  • The home does have an attached garage and there is also a small detached garage building on the premises.
  • The land offers incredible hunting opportunities for a smaller parcel.
  •  Gorgeous and very rare oak/savanna ecosystem with native prairie all around.
  • The tall grasses and thick cover offer outstanding deer sanctuary areas for living in day to day and for security cover.
  • The land offers various successional habitats from early to late-stage (large oaks) which offers the ultimate in deer attractiveness!
  •  Edge habitat is very abundant and the early successional habitats offer lots of natural, native browse.
  •  Lots of treestand and set-up options, especially for smaller parcels.
  • There are at least 3 major areas that one could establish food plots in.
  • The abandoned roadway along the east side of the property allows easy entrance and exit into various stand setups – going into the wind to get to your stand!

And The Lake – Ah yes, THE LAKE!

  • The lake measures right at 6 acres and up to 7 acres (during really wet years).  Here is one pond that is totally justifiable to be called a lake!  (such a lake can easily cost $70,000-$100,000 or more to construct!)
  • The lake has abundant crappie with reports from the previous owner of numerous crappie up to and over 16 inches!  Those are huge crappies regardless of where you are fishing in the U.S.!  Right in the back yard!
  • Bass too—and some giant largemouth possible here!
  • In 2015 the owner stocked forage fish – golden shiners and fathead minnows at 10X the normal rate!  What this will do is create a huge buffet of food to resident fish and should make them grow super fast and to potentially huge sizes!   Big fish and I do mean really big fish could easily come from this lake at any given time –  could be a 10 lb largemouth bass or a 3 –4 lb. crappie – how great would that be?  Iowa DNR records show that ponds in southern Iowa consistently produce the most and biggest game fish of any bodies of water in the state!
  • Bluegill and catfish also present and could easily get to huge sizes here as well.

Here is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a great piece of Iowa hunting land along with a nice home and your own stocked lake – all in a post-card setting?  What in the world are you waiting for?  We don’t expect this one to last very long!

Call me now if you like to make this one your personal piece of paradise!  Rich 641-919-9026.

SOLD!

 Van Buren County, 170 Acres (Iowa hunting land for sale)

Priced at $3950/Acre (This is a SUPERB Iowa hunting farm!)

 

 

Here it is – your Iowa dream farm!  My Iowa dream trophy whitetail farm! 

You can look long and awfully hard to find a better Iowa land parcel for holding and growing big deer!  And you may look and look and look and never find another farm this good!

This Iowa farm for sale isn’t for just anyone.   This isn’t your average Iowa farm.   This isn’t your grandpa’s farm!  This farm is very special and has a history of producing big Iowa bucks!

The habitat components that make up all the acres, the timber, the CRP fields and the food plots, are all under intense management.  Forestry crews have gone through most of the forested acres and have hand-picked certain high-quality oaks, walnuts, and hickories that will remain as crop trees.  These crop trees are then thinned around to give them up to 2X normal growth speed and up to 10X the fruit/nut production of a “normal” tree!

Not only does all of this help your timber and ultimately the log value within the timber but this timber stand improvement (tsi) also gives a huge shot in the arm to the wildlife value of the forest itself – new growth sprouts up in areas that receive increased sunlight and this increases deer food and cover exponentially across the forested acres.  The result is that the managed timber becomes much more attractive to deer and other wildlife than neighboring timberland.  So guess where the deer will be?  Bingo!

                                          Van Buren 170 Acre Aerial Photo    

  1. The CRP acres – the Conservation Reserve Acres – 73.8 acres — have been planted to tall native grasses such as switchgrass, IndiaCRgrass, and big bluestem.   This is a huge plus over “normal” CRP acres that are planted in cool-season grasses like brome or fescue.  The native grasses provide a much more desired habitat and holding cover for all sorts of wildlife.
  2. Approximately 15 acres tillable not in CRP.  This could be rented out and/or used as a food plot area.  This could be an additional $3,000 estimated income per year if cash rented out.
  3. The CRP income on this Iowa farm is estimated to be over $12,695/year.  Many of the CRP acres have corn suitability ratings (csr’s) over 80!  That is incredible and land with soils such as these have sold in the recent past in Iowa for $10,000/acre and more!
  4. This Iowa trophy whitetail farm has a superb mix of timber and tall native grasses and food plots – yes, the food plots!  They are kept top-notch with appropriate levels of lime and fertilizer, to grow most anything that’s desired!
  5. There is a year-round stream on the property – this serves as a heavily used travel corridor for bucks during the rut! 

Keep in mind — the income numbers on this farm should go up when CRP contracts expire and get renewed or if elected to farm out instead of opting to re-enroll in the CRP program.  CRP contracts for this parcel expire in 2020, 2022, 2025 and 2026  (4 different contracts on this parcel).

Come check this place out before it is too late!  Call Rich at 641-919-9026

Wapello county 63 Acre Parcel — Whitetail and turkey paradise with awesome log home!

(Wapello County, Iowa hunting land and farm for sale!)

(also available with 100-acre option — ask us about this!)

  • This is a sportsman’s dream property — awesome place to live and what an awesome southern Iowa hunting land!
  • Tons of superb features make this Iowa property stand head and shoulders above the rest!  CRP for income and plenty of mature timber too!
  • The beautiful log home has 2369 Square Feet of living space (includes fully finished basement — custom tile flooring in the basement!)
  • 3-4 bedroom 2.5 bath — built in 2002.  Wrap-deck  with south and southwest facing views over the stocked pond!  Watch deer and turkey feed in your back yard while you watch the sunset!
  • 1344 square foot metal pole building is perfect for the vehicles and any “toys” you may have!
  • The land is made up of approximately 44 acres of upland hardwood timber comprised of various oaks, hickory, cherry, elm, etc.,
  • Approximately 19 acres of CRP paying $118.50 per acre through 2017 == $2252 per year.  (chances would be very good that this would be eligible for a renewal CRP contract at a newer/modern rate when this expires.  Or, one could easily farm or cash rent out the land)
  • There are deer and turkey all over this farm — check out the aerial photo to see how this land spider’s out with numerous fingers and “coves” that would set up perfect for either deer or turkey hunting!
  • Trophy genetics on the whitetails is superb in the area with a long history of bucks scoring over 170 inches coming from the area — Hundreds of acres of land in the immediate area being strictly managed for giant bucks.
  • The farm backs into rather remote area of heavily timbered state land — with many super steep gullies and ravines between the border and the state land access — giving the owner of this property nearly exclusive access to hunt some remote areas of the state land AND to take advantage of wildlife coming off of the state land and onto the private!
  • This property also has a young orchard with several species of apple trees — apple varieties specifically selected to drop fruit from late summer to late fall — when the hunter can take advantage of their attractiveness to the deer!
  • This farm also has 2 custom built — weathertight — and insulated tower blinds!  Perfect for hunting in fierce weather and/or with multiple hunters!

Wapello 35 Acres, m/l

photo of wapello county 35 acres for sale -- google earth view

This farm has so much “whitetail” packed into just 35 acres that it feels more like 80 acres!  (This was the thought going through my head the first time I walked it! )
Fantastic opportunity to buy an awesome Iowa whitetail farm for just a little bit more than a new diesel pickup truck!  Isn’t that ridiculous?  Guess which one will be worth more in 2 years?  5 years?  10 years?  (I know which one I’m picking!)
This really is a fantastic piece too!   Whitetails are here in great numbers.  The terrain is rolling wooded hills.  Lots of mature hardwoods — with allot of mature, acorn producing oak!  Thick stuff is here too!  The whitetails here have it made.  There no reason for them to go far, that’s for sure!
And this farm sits smack-dab center of some of the finest trophy whitetail producing ground in the United States (Or Canada or Mexico, for that matter!)
And talk about thick stuff….. it’s here too, plenty of it in fact!    Great sanctuary cover.  And a creek too runs through this Iowa farm too!   Did I mention an 8-acre field with 52 CSR soil!  This would be a fantastic food plot area (obviously) or you one could use it to create an income stream — This type of soil would normally be expected to rent out for $140-$200 per acre, per year range.
AND did I mention that this Iowa farmland for sale has a killer view on top the field, overlooking the whole farm to the south — and a unreal view of the Des Moines river valley looking out to the north!!   This would be a great building spot, no question, with rural water (rural water is top quality water and is generally considered the most desired water source in southeastern Iowa), and electric service at the road.
And the embankment — oh the embankment!  It goes up along the adjacent road so that no one can see into the farm from the road — that’s right this farm has great access into it from the adjacent roadway to the north,  BUT the farm is hidden by the rising slope of the terrain along the road — making it hard for anyone’s prying eyes to be peeking into this property from the road!    You can have your cake and eat it too!  
This farm really does have so much going for it.  And it should set up great for the bowhunter (or the gun hunter).  With predominate southwesterly winds of the region, the hunter can walk into the winds to get into stand!  Perfecto!
Come take a look at this one before it slips away!   Call Rich at 641-919-9026

  • Approximately 25 acres of CRP paying approximately $2500/yr through 2017
  • Private spring-fed lake!  The lake is spring-fed and approximately 40 feet deep and is approximately 9 acres in size (according to the owner).  Stocked with bass, catfish, crappie, and bluegill.
  • Largemouth bass of 8 and 9 lbs have been caught (the Iowa state record is just over 10 lb’s so there is a serious chance this pond could produce a state record largemouth!
  • Trophy Whitetail hunting: The owner isn’t a trophy hunter as such but bucks in the 170-200 inch range have been harvested and seen on this property!
  • The timber features extensive areas of white oak with some areas of cedar (great bedding cover).  The white oak timber will gain significant value over the coming decades.
  • The owner has built several small ponds above the large main lake fingers to help filter any runoff (to keep the water in great shape)
  • The owner has built an extensive trail system throughout the property for easy access throughout with an ATV or even a 4 x 4 truck.
  • Small ponds and a slough below the main lake with wood duck houses.  Perfect places to shoot some early season ducks!  (The main lake gets flights of geese stopping by and ducks too)

Marion Co. 107 acres (Near Knoxville!)

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 Iowa land for sale 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!

Warren County 35 Acres for Sale – 20 minutes from Des Moines!

Here is that once-in-a-lifetime chance to purchase a farm adjoining a huge wildlife refuge (these properties are needle-in-a-haystack finds and are rarely available!) This property — though not large — should hunt huge, as bucks from the adjoining refuge march through care-free during the rut! Priced at $148,000

  • Smaller farm packing a MAJOR punch! – 35 acres with all the right ingredients!
  • Priced at $148,000: an affordable piece and a unique opportunity to own the RIGHT small farm.
  • 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?
  • Warren County land is very competitive and sought after with its proximity to the Des Moines metro, and the added bonus of great recreational potential is the icing on the cake.
  • Top-notch whitetail genetics, this property will surprise year-end and year-out with an array of antler traits.
  • Newly established interior food plot – textbook ambush location along an already heavily traveled corridor.
  • Woodland pond provides a year-round water source to wildlife as well as a fantastic pinch point to catch cruising bucks funneling out of the refuge.
  • Quality wood producer: One of the most productive walnut sites I’ve seen: a unique scenario created along a spillway for Lake Ahquabi: bottom benches and fertile soils growing tall and clean trees.
  • A large 100-acre crop field outlines the west boundary – the first destination food source for deer coming out of the refuge. Huge winter attractant and a consistent bachelor pad for bucks in the summer!
  • Lake Ahquabi and surrounding areas provide a wide array of recreational opportunities outside of whitetail hunting…
  • o A no-wake, 115-acre lake with a beach
  • o The Hooper WMA down the road adds another 418 acres of quality public hunting.
  • o State park offers modern camping facilities, shelters, etc., and all just right around the corner!
  • To complement the whitetails, this property maintains a very healthy turkey population, and the large Ag field is a popular destination for waterfowl coming off the lake.
  • Minimal taxes ($220/yr.) as the majority of the property is enrolled in the Forest Reserve program
  •  Give Derek a call today at 515-554-0032 to schedule a showing of this one-of-a-kind piece!
