Why You'll Love It

You’ve just found one of the most outstanding trophy deer and turkey hunting properties in the entire Midwest. This unprecedented 160+/- acres is the epitome of a world-class Boone & Crockett factory that is by far and in large one of the greatest pieces of deer dirt you may ever find. If you want the absolute best, here’s your chance to call it your own.

In a neighborhood swallowed by captivating bluffs and donned by the famous Kickapoo River, you’ll find this immaculate turnkey farm nestled in the village of Gays Mills. Premium top-access with gated entry allows superb advantages for building, hunting and planting setups. A gravel base driveway entry provides a scenic approach along the ridge-spine that overlooks a picturesque setting personifying the Driftless Region’s allure. Follow the hogsback trail system which runs the entire property length from east to west and north to south to negotiate each secluded pocket of real estate.

There’s a slurry of other worldly building sites with an electric panel and power on site. In fact, a commercial 6” drilled well that’s 386-feet deep may be found on-site. Electric is trenched and the seller has stated that it may support up to 3-residential home sites if you desired to develop.

For those that are in search of a turnkey setup ready to plug-and-play, this is it! The estate could serve as your future permanent residence, development opportunity or simply remain what it is – a monster buck proving grounds. It only takes a quick ride on an ATV to discover what whitetail rich land looks like for those with the keen sense of whitetail 101. These ridges are completely littered in gnarly buck sign with countless trees spotlighted by shredded rubs, which is just a subtle reminder of the goliath-sized whitetail that call this land home.

You’ll find numerous box blinds setup along the ridgetops strategically placed for varying winds. In fact, one of the custom-built shooting houses is fully setup with electric! The trail system provides precise routes to and from treestands, turkey roosts and food plot locations. There’s about 7-acres reserved for clever food plot sites for year-round wildlife attraction. While the majority of this property is heavily wooded, you’ll find 31-acres in active tillable production for additional income. The remainder of open ground is enrolled in CRP, which consists of 21-acres. This brings in an additional $2,100/year and serves as prime fawning and bedding ground. What makes this property so utterly desirable is not only the like-minded Quality Deer Management neighborhood, but also the diverse terrain. You’ll find over 7-unique ridge point fingers that bellow into deep ravines and valleys. These distinct outcroppings are home to sublime buck bedding areas. An array of inside corner hot-spots, edges, pinch-points and cover create a Disney World of ecstasy for deer and turkey hunters. Numerous funnels are naturally occurring due to the topography of the property.

Several catch ponds throughout the land offer water sources, while hundreds of mature apple trees along the ridge afford a magnetic draw for deer. There are multiple springs flowing year-round for additional water sources for critters. This is your chance to own a wildlife rich estate that has proven to produce trophy whitetail year-after-year! While many will be fascinated by the game and immense amount of productive improvements implemented on the land, one must not forget the true beauty highlighted by panoramic views of rolling bluff country. You’ll find sought-after trout streams all around the area. Imagine waking up to checking trail cameras in the woods, spend the midday wetting a line for trout and be back in a tree for the evening hunt. This is not only possible, but the reality!

The land is enrolled in Managed Forest Land Closed, which makes the taxes only $1,563/annually.

Take a moment to see yourself here. Picture yourself, your family or friends enjoying the comradery of camp with your favorite beverage at night around the campfire. Waking up to a forest full of game. Listening to the sounds of nature. And making endless memories that will certainly last a lifetime. Browse through the photos, look at the deer and ask yourself if you’ve ever seen anything remotely close to a property like this… I’m going to say you probably haven’t, simply because they rarely exist. This is the “Unicorn” of recreational property.

This profound piece of recreational ground offers amazing hunting and a variety of unforgettable memories. Now is the time to take advantage of this world-class estate. Consider this property a must-see if you have any interest in owning some of richest deer dirt in the state.
