Beautiful views, open fields and excellent bedding areas make this a very unique deer hunting property!
Nicely situated off the public road, this unique property consists of a large open field, creek borders, open bottomland, and some of the best whitetail cover you’ll find on a small property!
The high ground is near the entrance to the property and moderately slopes north and west from there towards the creek. The 17-acre field on this high ground has beautiful vistas of the local countryside and mountains in the distance. It was previously in a Conservation Program that ended in 2016 and in recent years it has been in hay production. This has virtually eliminated any erosion and provides cover and food for all the animals that live on this property.
Along the western border is a long, narrow strip of bottomland. It has a creek border on one side and thick cover as you go up the slope. This old field is excellent cover for wildlife and has been an excellent food plot area. The buck sign along the cover and field edge is, for a lack of a better term crazy! It’s hard to not see a buck rub on any tree. Deer & game trails zigzag thru this area and would make for a great gun hunting stand location.
Little Crooked Creek is the main water feature on the property and serves as the geographic border along the west and north boundaries. It flows year-round and has sandy bottoms with small pebbles. Its generally 4-8-foot-wide and has 2-3-foot-high banks. Little Crooked Creek flows south to northeast along the bottomland, then wraps around the thick cover on the north border. Having this creek cutting thru the cover provides a secluded water source for all the wildlife. This a unique feature not found on many properties and one that hunters will appreciate!
There is an old house on the property that is in total disrepair and not salvageable. It does add to the long history of this family farm and reminds us that all land has historical significance. There’s even an old hand dug well that has a heavy concrete cover. Although this feature is cool, I usually recommend that the new owner fill these in for safety and liability purposes.
Overall, the security, seclusion and vistas this property offers make it an attractive, year-round property for recreational and hunting use. You’ll enjoy observing wildlife, beautiful sunsets and viewing the stars from the top of the hill. Once hunting season arrives, you won’t be disappointed with the amount of opportunities. The local area has many other things to do and see in the area, especially Hanging Rock State Park, https://hangingrock.com/.
