This piece is 358 acres of prime whitetail habitat located in Pike county, just west of Petersburg, IN 47567. The first thing that hits you when you walk this property is its shear size! Tracts of this size are becoming a rare find! There is plenty of room for the whole family to hunt even at the same time. This would also make a great property for a sportsmen's club or something similar.
This is not your average WRP property, some areas are thick with small trees and brush which has created good browse and excellent escape cover helping supporting an abundance of wildlife on the property. There are areas of mature forest with many different species of hardwoods including a good number of large acorn bearing white and red oaks, many of with are in great spots to hunt and a few already have tree stands in them ready to go! Some areas have had hundreds of swamp white oaks and red oaks planted most of which are now between 6" and 12" in diameter, if properly managed these trees will make for great hunting now and for generations to come. Whitetail deer sign can be found all over the property, rubs and scrapes abound and every area seem to be littered with tracks and trails. We even found a couple shed antlers on our last visit!
Turkey are known to inhabit the property and they could be easily hunted in the open mature woods and along the trails and food plots.
If waterfowl is your passion, then this is the place for you! On our last visit the sloughs and flooded timber were teaming with wood ducks, mallards and a few other species. This property is located just 10 miles north of the Patoka River National Wildlife refuge which consists of over 10,000 acres of various wildlife habitat and is reported to be some of the best waterfowl hunting in Indiana. The White River runs just 200 feet from the property boundary making it part of a rich river ecosystem.
WRP ground has some restrictions, but quiet enjoyment and recreational activities including hunting are allowed. 5% of the total acres can be put into food plots and trails, with 358 acres you should be able to plant up to 17.9 acres which should be more than enough for the serious hunters and habitat manager to get very creative with their designs perhaps creating many different pockets of food throughout the property resulting in many possible ambush locations. There are a few open pockets that would be easy to plant and one established food plot area of about an acre, and others like it could be carved out of the cover on other areas of the property.
There are 4 very nice elevated box blinds and 15 tree stands currently on the property and will be included in the sale.
There is an extensive and well maintained trail system that provides access to much of the property. It is wide enough for a UTV or even a vehicle, making getting your deer out much easier and opening up many more hunting opportunities for hunters with limited mobility.
Seller also will include an additional 3 +/- acre local building site (if desired) with utilities available in the sale of this property. This spot is about 8 miles from the main property and will be a perfect place to build a cabin for a deer or duck camp or a great spot to park a camper or RV.
