Property Description

If you are in the market for a truly incredible Fulton County, IL hunting property this 170+- 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! Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to see some world class deer hunting farms throughout Central Illinois, I would without a doubt put this tract up against any I have ever got to spend time on. The 170+- acre parcel is made up of 69+- acres of highly productive tillable soil, a 30’ CRP buffer strip consisting of 13 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 69+- tillable acres with a PI of 118 offers a strong annual return for a premiere hunting tract. 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 $25,000-$30,000 range. The timber offers nice flat areas as well as portions with rolling/aggressive topography making it ideal habitat for the wildlife. 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. There are multiple places throughout that would make for ideal future lake sites if a new owner would like to add a lake at some point. I believe this tract will impress the savviest of veteran whitetail hunters!
