Wildlife call this haven home. Deer, turkey, geese, bald eagles and ducks can be spotted on a daily basis. This sacred region has been untouched by glaciers and boasts unparalleled recreational opportunities.
West of HWY 131, you’ll find over 3,000ft of immaculate Kickapoo River frontage. This is a trout fisherman’s dream! Fish, canoe or kayak down the most crooked river in the world – the Kickapoo! The world-famous, River snakes along the westerly boundary. The river got its name from Native American language, meaning to go here and there, or crooked, and no other name would be more appropriate. At 125-miles, the Kickapoo River is the longest tributary of the Wisconsin River, however runs only 65-miles “as a crow fly.” The glaciers that missed the Driftless Area did not change the River’s natural course, hence, it’s one of the oldest River systems in the world! In addition, Elk Creek, a Class 1 Trout Stream, runs just south of the property for additional fishing hot-spots. There’s been goliath-sized trout caught from these very waters. There’s a variety of different fish species throughout both water systems.
East of HWY 131, you’ll find a whitetail hunter’s wonderland. An extraordinary ridge encompasses nearly 40-acres of wooded ground rooted with a slurry of future marketable walnut timber stands throughout. Oak, walnut, hickory and cedar dominate the hillsides. You may access the ridge from a trail system that negotiates the forestland and ends at the very top. Here, you’ll notice a 4-acre field that’s specifically planted for wildlife. This food plot harbors a variety of deer crazy groceries and has been a proven big buck hang-out.
While both sides offer their most unique attributes, one will find that the pair go together seamlessly. The superior highlights of this domain are undoubtedly remarkable, but it doesn’t end there.
You’ll find an Indian “trail marker tree” right along the property’s hill road. A large tree exhibits a deformed growth and distinctive form bent in a vertical plane. Historically, these rare trees were marked as an important place by Native Americans. This specific tree served as a navigable aid or sign-post. At one time, this sapling was forced to grow deformed by intentionally bending the trunk to retain a specific shape that would illustrate an extensive land and water navigational system – hence the Kickapoo River! The property even features several awe-inspiring rock outcroppings. There’s so much more to this estate than what meets the eye. The history, beauty and incredible deer hunting and trout fishing makes it truly one of a kind. The property is adequately fenced for the previous cattle that were once grazing in years past. The land is not in any sort of government programs nor MFL contracts making this an ideal benefit to a new owner.
