Pleasure Valley Farm…sure the word “farm” is in the name, but this property is anything but that. This “farm” is a world class hunting property in the making and all it needs is a new owner to plant some kill plots. The gauntlet is the prized possession of this property nestled between two large ridge systems of solid timber. You will find a crystal-clear water flowing peacefully down its southern border accompanied by numerous apple trees. Several secluded clearings are begging to be planted with clover, beans, and brassicas to complete the one stop shop for your next Boone and Crockett Whitetail. This location is critical for early season hunts as it is incredibly easy to get to and wildly productive all while being the least bit intrusive. Don't push the deer onto the neighbor's property like your buddy who never gets anything every year, sneak in quietly and let the deer come to you while they enjoy the luscious groceries you have planted for them or a sweat apple hanging from the tree 20 yards away.
Property boasts great morel mushroom hunting, blackberries, ginseng and many other rare plant species that are only found in this drift less region of the Ocooch Mountain Range. You can see for miles from the top of this one of a kind property. The owner states," it is now time for another to enjoy this land". This property was once inhabited by the Kickapoo Indians as many arrow heads have been found in the garden. There are many mature Oak, Walnut, Hickory, Black Cherry, Sugar Maple and apple trees on this property.
The extensive trail system makes it easy to access the entire property whether you are hunting out the back door or sneaking to your most remote stand. A large ag field is located on the top of the largest ridge and is currently planted with alfalfa. Several rows of pines funnel the deer down the center toward the large insulated, carpeted, and tinned custom box blind. This blind is perfectly located between bedding and food to give you plenty of opportunities during rile season or even on cold wet windy days in early November. A privacy screen of pines also protects the southern border of the property from the neighbor's view. Your opportunity of harvesting a giant is consistent regardless of wind direction because this peninsula of agricultural ground is surrounded by large timber tracts. The main access road was cut in with a dozer, so you are well hidden while traveling to and from your stand by staying below their eyesight. To complete the package there are also several more secluded clearings just before the large ag field that are perfect for food plots.
A beautiful spring fed class I Trout stream flows over the entire northwestern corner of the property providing an estimated 1200 feet of water frontage containing several great honey holes for catching Brook Trout. If you feel like a drive, there are countless other Trout streams in very close proximity as this large tract is situated in the northeast corner of Crawford County and just a couple of minutes from both Vernon and Richland Counties which are also known for their phenomenal Trout fishing.
If you wish to build your dream log cabin there are multiple build sites providing you with that opportunity. If not, there is a warm and comfortable farm house waiting for the weekend warrior and those of us who have the rut blocked out on our calendar's every year. What's even better is if you are fortunate enough to be able to work from home, or away from the office, there is high speed internet so your boss wont know you are hunting the morning and afternoon hours because those emails will continue to get answered. Don't forget the toys and equipment either, as there is plenty of room in the 30'X50' pole shed, 30'X60' machine shed, 17'X30' shop, and 9'X11' milk house.
