Hunting, Fishing, ATV and More!
For an outdoor enthusiast of means, this Western Illinois Trophy Ranch that is within 3 hours drive of downtown Chicago could be your dream playground.
Though you may not be the “Man With A Million Acres” I just read about over the weekend, you probably realize that buying land these days can be a great investment.
This 87 acre property was a Christmas tree farm at one time, so there are pine trees all over in both fields and wind break configurations.
Lots of hardwoods (with an appraisal to go with them) adorn the property, provide food and habitat for wildlife and feed the awesome sealed fireplace that’s in the house.
Custom Home And Insulated Shop
This home with property located between the Quad Cities and Galesburg boasts a fantastic custom built home with lots of bedrooms, baths and great storage to boot.
The fully insulated Morton Building provides cover to the whole house generator, the compact tractor, mower and the 6 wheel ATV with room to spare. A sub-shop within is a great place to clean guns or just warm up or clean up.
Best Use For The Land
While the land has been used for sheep farming and Christmas tree growing in the past, and currently has a real nice crop of hardwoods getting bigger every year, the local NRCS guy was out with me walking the land a few weeks ago and suggested – again – that the best use of the land is for someone’s Illinois trophy ranch.
The deer are just plain thick, and Mercer County Illinois is the best kept deer hunting secret that is finally being revealed. Our deer here are on par with with famous Pike County of Southern Illinois and the land is much more affordable for buying a nice sized ranch like this.
Deer are not all you can hunt, turkeys are thick as well (we have video here), and even the local firemen used to congregate at the upper pond for fishing and a fish fry to follow.
Horse owners will love this ranch and so will ATV riders. There is something for everyone who loves wildlife and the outdoors at this home with property near the Quad Cities in Western Illinois.
