Calling all Driftless area trophy whitetail deer hunters who love to hunt flat wooded ridge tops. In all my years selling hunting properties, I have never seen a property which featured as much “flat” on top of the ridge which all of us crave during the rut. Whitetail bucks are known to run these ridge tops for miles and miles in search of doe in estrus. This property boasts over ¾ of a mile of coveted flat wooded ridge top ground. An abundance of stand locations are scattered throughout the entire flat which is extremely easy to navigate with several miles of trails. This timber stand is plum full of premium harvestable oak and hard maple. In fact, the DNR Land Exam and Practices Report form 2019 documents 600,000 board feet of harvestable timber across 12 different stand sites. This report is on file with myself and the DNR making it incredibly easy for discerning buyers to verify the timber value on the property which was estimated at $200,000 in 2019.
The sellers have conducted timber stand improvement (TSI) over the past 30 years of ownership and the results will not go unnoticed. You will find standing oak of 20+’’ numbering in the tens per acre. I have only seen one property in the past five years which featured this much premium mature timber! That property had 40 acres of mature oak; this one has an astounding 100+ acres of it. Once you take ownership of this incredible whitetail masterpiece you will be able to decide how you want the timber harvested in cooperation with the DNR forester who is very familiar with the property. Brainstorm incredible opportunities for thick bedding areas, strategic food plots, and pinch points between the two! Continue to manage the timber correctly and collect significant income every five or ten years.
If you are like me you will want to save the ridge top for the rut. No worries there, the bottom of the ridge is easily accessed in its entirety with its own masterfully dozed trail. Deer sign is immeasurable on this part of the property as the deer travel from the hillside to the river bottom to feed and water. The property line ends at the bottom of the hill just past the trail but there is significant edge to be hunted here. As a bonus, the neighboring property owner has planted hundreds of pines along the roadway creating an impenetrable screen for the deer. Three draws on the hillside funnel whitetails to strategic stand locations where travel, scrapes, and rubs peak in numbers. The bottom 50 yards of this hillside is gently sloping before it rapidly jumps up in elevation creating yet another natural travel corridor and pinch point. The deer travel back and forth along this bottom edge and their trails are more than obvious.
When purchasing a property of this size a build site is a necessity. Fear not, this property has a gently sloping open field along County Road E perfect for your hunt camp, dream home, and toy shed. Electric runs along the road and the elevation is a modest 840’ greatly reducing your well cost. Enjoy the panoramic view your walk out basement and wrap around deck will provide as you overlook the Mill Creek. Did I mention Mill Creek is a class one trout stream with abundant public access points along County Road E? In fact, the public fishing area is just over a mile away.
Properties like this one are few and far between, I highly encourage you to contact me for a private showing via UTV at your earliest convenience.
