LandTrophy Country is quite possibly the best recreational property in the Midwest. Located just north of Moberly, Missouri, this offering in the heart of big deer country and directly underneath the Mississippi flyway. The 4700 +/- acres has an incredible landscape from the aftermath of decades ago coal mining and through the mining process an absolute outdoor paradise was created. Incredibly prime wildlife habitat and pristine lakes were left behind.
Access to various locations on the ranch is made easy with the over 35 miles of interior roads. The large contiguous tract of land boasts over 50 separate lakes that have been stocked and conscientiously managed to make these lakes a world class fishery. Species that can be caught in the various lakes include, large mouth bass, crappie, small mouth bass, pike, perch and catfish.
The large whitetail deer population on the ranch has been under strict management practices for nearly 30 years and has produced a large number of Boone and Crockett whitetails harvested with a handful reaching over the magical 200 inch mark. Dozens of box blinds are already in prime locations and hunt ready. Spring time in the Missouri woods can be summed up with gobbling turkeys and morel mushrooms. In spite of the declining Turkey numbers across the Midwest, Trophy Country's management program has made this acreage an exception to that trend and is currently home to a booming population of Eastern Wild Turkeys. The fertile ground also is perfect habitat for morel mushrooms in large quantities. With several hundred acres of levy controlled wetlands, the center of the ranch is some of the finest duck habitat possible. Tens of thousands of ducks and geese make use of this incredible habitat every year.
The property also has over 100 acres of high producing tillable ground and a several hundred acres of high quality hay ground. The hay production averages over 3000 large round bales yearly.
