Congratulations. You’ve just found one of the most extraordinary trophy deer hunting properties in Southwestern Wisconsin. This massive 152.06-acre haven is completely littered in gnarly buck sign with countless trees sporting shredded rubs. If you’re in search of premium whitetail country - look no further than right here. Sit back, relax and let me explain why this rare opportunity to own the very best deer dirt is now a reality.
This epic daydreamer of an estate offers endless potential for those who simply can’t take their mind off giant whitetail. Nestled in the rolling bluffs of the region’s most sought after area, you’ll find everything you’d want in a piece of land 10x over. It only takes a quick ride on an ATV to discover what whitetail rich land looks like for those with the keen sense of whitetail 101. In fact, I dare anyone to compare this property to any tract of apex land in the notorious Buffalo County - but for only half the price.
Follow a well-groomed farm road into the clouds of an outstanding ridge top covered in 49-acres of fertile tillable ground. Here, you will find secluded fields that lie along a sprawling plateau. The ag ground checkerboards over sixteen adjacent ridge points. These distinct outcroppings are home to sublime bedding areas holding several doe family groups and mature buck bedrooms. With that said, have you found the picture of the buck bed in the photo gallery yet?
These hidden fields offer an array of inside corner hot-spots and edges, which whitetail are instinctively drawn to. The vast farmland is complimented by the terrain. Numerous funnels and pinch-points are naturally occurring due to the topography of the property, which is precisely illustrated on the map. There are man-made waterholes with treestands overlooking each. Although there are scattered springs throughout the tract with a small stream weaving near the barn, deer much rather prefer the stagnant lukewarm drinking source of a water pocket. If you’ve ever hunted a waterhole during the rut, you know exactly how productive they can be.
The tillable ground rents for $90/acre, which presents an annual revenue stream of $4,410+/- for the new owner. You can expect endless rows of corn plantings this fall and ask the farmer to install a couple lush food plots for a variety of deer-crazy groceries. This ground has only been lightly hunted by one person for a number of years. A property like this can comfortably hunt up to 6-people. The number of inside corners, valleys and ridge tops make for a shocking amount of ground to cover - making it hunt BIG.
Fortunately, the land is situated in a QDM area with large neighboring landowners. For those that scourer Plat Books, you’ll notice several hundred acres of privately owned land next door. For the amount of land I personally touch, the one common denominator I find for growing trophy deer rests in location and proximity to big chunks of ground. There’s a 573+/- acre privately owned tract on the north boundary, 115+/- acre tract to the East, 191+/- and 114+/- acre to the south. These combined blocks form a staggering section of 1,265-acres. Owned by only 5 landowners including this particular one for sale. Yet another reason to make a prospective buyer thrilled for the chance to call it your very own. Please see the Plat Map image in the photo gallery for reference.
Take a simple walk within the timber and find a maze of crisscrossing deer trails that have been made into mud runways. Along the perimeter of woods, it’s not uncommon to see cratering scrapes every 40-yards. The buck rubs alone are enough to give anyone an instant jolt of buck fever. Just to imagine what heavy-horned mammoth made them will leave you sleepless for days.
This profound piece of recreational ground offers potential building sites for hunting camp or permanent residence. Although the land is off a quiet gravel road, there’s no worry for an onslaught of heavy traffic. The land is tucked away off the beaten path, which probably notes an additional bonus to why it’s so idyllic. It’s quite simple to completely lose yourself in the rolling hardwood ridges and stunning valley bowls. Beauty meets world-class whitetail hunting in this scenic wilderness.
Now is the time to take advantage of this world-class estate. Consider this property a must-see if you have any interest in owning some of richest deer dirt in the state.
