Entire Farm Description:

Dynamite hunting tract! This property offers all the essential elements for the avid hunter and property manager. This large contiguous acreage tract boasts a diverse blend of habitat types, making it an ideal sanctuary for growing, holding, and harvesting mature bucks! With 100+/- tillable acres, the property generates a steady annual income of $10,000.00 and was planted in corn for the 2023 season. Additionally, there are 40+/- acres of open ground, which holds the potential for hay income, further enhancing the property and its practicality. Some areas of the open ground have established stands of clover already in place. The combination of tillable acreage and open ground has created miles of field edge on numerous opportunities for adding additional food plot acreage. For the discerning hunter, this tract presents a plethora of opportunities. Multiple ponds adorn the landscape, providing fishing opportunities and a year-round water source for wildlife in the area. When it comes to scouting and hunting, this tract is well-equipped. Three Redneck blinds and one 2-man deluxe Condo blind remain with the property, strategically positioned in known big buck areas. The rolling topography, timbered ridges, and draws create numerous funnels and pinch points, making it easier to track and intercept game. The property’s timber, a mix of softwoods and mast-producing hardwoods, was selectively cut a decade ago, allowing for regeneration and a healthy habitat. Amongst the timbered areas, you’ll find sections of dense understory that provide the ideal security and bedding cover for big bucks. Black Creek and several drainages flow throughout the property. Black Creek is a major travel corridor for wildlife in the area with several ideal ambush sites along its path. This natural feature enhances the property’s already exceptional hunting potential. Navigating the vast terrain is made effortless by the established trail system, which spans the property and is wide enough to accommodate a tractor and implements, easing transportation and management activities. Access is further facilitated with over 1 mile of road frontage along multiple sides and three gated entry points. In conclusion, this dynamite hunting tract is a remarkable opportunity for any hunting enthusiast or property manager seeking a well-rounded and productive piece of land. With its diverse habitat, established income streams, strategically placed blinds, and extensive trail system, this property is primed for both exceptional hunting experiences and sound land management practices.

Do not bid until you have read and agree to the terms and conditions. By bidding you are representing that you have read and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions for this sale as stated herein. DO NOT BID unless you have registered, received a Bidder's Card or paddle number and have read and agreed to be bound by the terms of sale in the Contract as they are enforceable against you upon becoming a high bidder. The successful bidder will be required to execute a Sales Agreement at the conclusion of the auction and submit the appropriate down payment in a timely manner as instructed by the Auctioneer.

All properties are sold "AS IS, WHERE IS" with no financing, inspection or other contingencies to sale. The Broker and Auction Company represent the seller only and do not inspect properties on the bidder's behalf. Read the Contract and Auction Day Notes to determine the existence of any disclosures, exclusions, representations and disclaimers. Do not bid if you have not inspected the property(ies). By bidding you agree to all disclosures.

Buyers receive a deed and Title Insurance Policy as provided by the Closer indicated in the Contract (any mobile/manufactured housing not legally affixed to the property shall only be conveyed by a Hold Harmless Agreement or Quitclaim Bill of Sale unless otherwise noted in the Disclosures). The current year's taxes are prorated through the day of closing as is customary unless otherwise noted or announced on sale day.

Or in abstract states, the seller shall provide a continuation of the abstract of title thru the date of sale for the buyer or buyers attorney to examine.

The sale of this property may be subject to a Buyer's Premium, which will be added to the high bid and included in the total purchase price. Please see the Auction Day Notes, The Contract for Sale, and/or the Auctioneer for specifics about the property you wish to bid on.

Tracts sold by the acre - The contract will indicate the current acreage, bid per acre and the high bid will be the current acreage multiplied by the high bid per acre. If a survey is required prior to closing that would result in a change to acreage, the contract will be adjusted to that acreage prior to closing and the purchase price will reflect that change in acreage.

If a survey is required, it is typically done immediately following the auction. The per acre bid at auction will then be multiplied by actual surveyed acres to determine the final sales price at closing. The purchase agreement and sales day announcements will identify the party responsible for survey cost.

Each high bidder must sign a purchase agreement and make a 10% non-refundable deposit immediately following the auction to the designated Title Company or escrow agent noted on the Purchase Agreement.
