Property Description

300± Acres with Victorian Style Home

ABSOLUTE AUCTION – SELLING TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER REGARDLESS OF PRICE

This might very well be the best 300± acre trophy whitetail ranch in the USA. This ranch has had whitetail bucks over 230 inches and has always had bucks in the 180 to 200 inches every year!!It has the perfect mix of habitats for whitetail. It is half dense treed habitat and half pasture (tillable) comprised of lush grasses and legumes that bring the deer out of the woods to graze. The owner has never planted food plots for whitetail– just imagine what it could be if you managed it for trophy bucks.

The soil has the perfect mineral content to produce huge bucks. The ranch also has the genetics to produce trophy whitetails, which is the starting point for any whitetail property!  This ranch lies in the fertile Mississippi valley that borders Iowa. It is secluded and private, with a dead end road starting and ending on the property.

It lays next to thousands of acres of government forest land to draw whitetails from—to add to your herd of huge whitetails. If you are a trophy whitetail hunter this ranch is a must see ranch.

As a bonus, the turkey hunting is just as incredible as the whitetail hunting.

300± acre chemical free rotational grazing cattle ranch in the Driftless Region outside of Viroqua, Wisconsin.
