If you are in the market for a small high quality Fulton County, IL hunting property this 48+- acre tract is a must see! This tract is located in Eastern Fulton County between Canton and Glasford, in an area that is historically known for producing giant whitetail deer!
The 48+- acre parcel is made up of 11+- acres of productive tillable soil, a 30’ CRP buffer strip consisting of 8+- acres around the entire timber edge, thick bedding and some impressive mature black walnut and oak trees. The timber has not been harvested in roughly 45-50 years and would give a new owner the opportunity for a timber harvest. The 11+- tillable acres with a PI of 118 would offer a nice annual return if cash rented or a great food source if tuned into standing crops and green food plots. Currently the tillable acres are on a custom farm basis with open tenancy starting in 2023. Expected annual return from the tillable acres would be in the $3000-$3200 range, a deal could be worked out with the neighboring farmer to plant and leave crops standing.
The timber offers nice flat areas as well as portions with rolling/aggressive topography making it ideal habitat for the wildlife as well as offering multiple places for a future lake. The abundant deer population can seek bedding shelter in the multiple thickets and deep draws on the tract. For years the property has had little to no hunting pressure, it’s a bit of a blank slate for a new owner to strategically place food plots throughout the multiple corners of open ground. This is truly a big buck farm in a well-known area for giant whitetails! I was able to get a handful of cameras out for a couple weeks prior to putting the property on the market. As you can see from the short time of running cameras there are strong genetics and one specific typical buck that will be in the Boone and Crockett class.
The owned access in the Northeast corner of the property is ideal to not disturb the wildlife when entering and exiting the property. This is a must see for anyone in the market for a small acreage that offers most everything you only find in larger tracts.
