265 Acres M/L

Listing #15125



Top shelf hunting properties like this rarely hit the open market! This remote 265 acres m/l is situated in the heart of big whitetail country along the Otter Creek Corridor in northeastern Clarke County. Highly maintained and manicured, this property includes miles of mowed trails along with multiple box blinds and tree stands that are placed in strategic locations throughout the farm (See Attached Trail Map). Countless hours of sweat equity and nearly a decade of strict management practices have yielded a trophy whitetail mecca that most hunters can only dream about. Multiple high-caliber bucks have called this farm home including a 214 inch gross B&C buck named “Can Opener”. This property not only has the ability to grow mature whitetails but also provides excellent opportunities to harvest those older age-class bucks on a consistent basis.

There are approximately 93.76 FSA tillable acres carrying a CSR2 of 54.1. The current owner has a contract accepted for 25.21 acres m/l to be enrolled into the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) this fall, pending approval of the Clarke County FSA Office.  The contract includes CRP practices CP2 & CP12 with an annual payment of $2,924 or $116 per acre (See Attached Pending CRP Acre Map). Primary soil types include Lawson and Mystic-Caleb loam. Ample food sources, diverse cover, and plentiful water sources provide a sanctuary supporting a strong population of deer, turkey, upland game birds, and waterfowl. Otter Creek meanders through the property with three separate rock crossings allowing easy access to the entire farm. 

The property also features an updated 18’ x 24’ Cabin and a one-acre stocked pond. There is a 30' wide easement allowing access to the Cabin from Ray Street. Electric service is provided through Clarke Electric Cooperative and rural water is serviced through SIRWA with a 1.5" line. Property is located in Sections 10, 11, 14 & 15 of Liberty Township 45 minutes from the Des Moines International Airport.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to turn a dream into a reality!
