Property Description

Located in the heart of the Driftless Area of west central Wisconsin, this property has something for everyone! This is a blank canvas, a diamond in the rough waiting for your unique touch. The failure of the glaciers to penetrate this area are responsible for the parcel’s steep hillsides, narrow valleys, prairies, and a land marked by unevenness. It has a spectacular building site that overlooks the valley below. Morning sunrises are amazing from this location. Or, you could build on the top of the ridge overlooking the prairie where the sunsets will have you looking forward to nightfall. This property really lays out well, from the driveway off the county road to the back of the property is almost ½ of a mile. It consists of 43 acres of woods. The woods consist of: valleys, ridgetops, draws, and a variety of trees typical of a northern forest: red, white & black oak, sugar & red maple, shagbark hickory, cherry, elm, apple, white & yellow birch, and more. In another 10 years or so it will be ready for a timber harvest. Currently there are approx. 6.5 acres of farm fields, and 2 .5 acres of prairie/food plots. The prairie area is in the need of some Bluebird houses, Kestrel houses, Bat houses and a few Leopold bench for viewing your wildlife paradise. Looking for a hunting parcel? You just found it! This area of the state is noted for its plentiful turkey and deer populations. This is an excellent deer hunting parcel. It’s a rutting bucks hotspot with heavily used deer trails, buck rubs galore, travel corridors/funnels, native brows, mature oaks and more! Speaking of deer, some of the largest bucks in the county are shot in this area each year! Quality Deer Management has been practiced on this parcel and many of the neighboring parcels as well. There are multiple stand locations for you and your family and friends. This parcel has much to offer anyone looking for peace and quiet in the Driftless Area.
