You’ve just found one of the most extraordinary trophy deer hunting camps in Southwestern Wisconsin to ever hit the market! This massive 345-acre wildlife haven is home to a playground of world-class animals spotlighted by a turnkey operation fully equipped with a charming home, pole buildings and butcher shop. This dreamy estate appears to be taken directly out of an Outdoor Life magazine feature and now exclusively offered to the general public for the first time in over 20-years. Brace yourself as you learn why this rare opportunity to own the very best deer dirt in the Midwest is at your very fingertips.
You’ll find this homestead nestled upon a ridgetop overlooking miles of sprawling landscape earmarked by panoramic views of cascading bluffs. This serene promise land is complimented by a fully renovated 4-bed, 1-bath farmhouse that serves as a permanent home or outdoor enthusiast’s basecamp. A spacious great room was recently added to the home decorated in knotty-pine, which serves as a cozy setting for relaxing after the hunt, watching a ball game and showcasing your collection of giants on the wall of fame. This fully functioning farmhouse provides everything you’d need for a weekend stay or everlasting residency.
The home is endorsed with a walk-out patio that overlooks the property encompassed by awe-inspiring views that nearly reach both the Wisconsin and Mississippi River at about 1,500ft in elevation. Imagine watching your very own land come to life during a breathtaking sunrise with coffee in hand or perhaps entertaining family and friends during a starry night. This masterful setting is the epitome of easing the heart and soul in Mother Nature’s creation.
A comfy cottage lies adjacent to the home suited with a fireplace as well as electric. The building provides overflow for guests and an idyllic gathering spot for strategically game planning your hunt – break out the aerial map, sift through trail cam photos and devise a tactical plan of attack. Upon a successful harvest, you’ll find a state-of-the-art custom butcher shop decked-out in stainless steel, a loading dock and an electric hoist system. There’s even water and a stove for cooking up fresh backstraps on-site – a must see for any hunter! Two large pole buildings fit for tractors, machinery and toys are simply icing on the cake.
This sought-after region of Southwest Wisconsin has produced a number of Boone & Crockett behemoths. In fact, multiple 200” deer were taken in this very neighborhood. Fertile ground amidst the Wisconsin & Mississippi River has been one of Wisconsin’s notorious sleepers for gnarly racked whitetail illustrated on magazine covers. A dynamic mix of 110+/- acres of tillable rents for $14,000/annually with a small amount of CRP for bedding cover creates an optimal habitat. There’re even 3 strategically-placed ponds with multiple springs throughout the landscape. Several large destination agriculture fields checkerboard the estate with various crop ground hidden with seclusion offering stunning ambush sites.
As a Land Specialist, I walk thousands of acres of land across this region of the state each year. I can personally attest that I’ve never seen so much deer sign in my life. Cattle-like deer trails crisscross ridge and valley systems to and from bedding areas as if they were county roads. There’s over 17 carefully placed treestands on the property in pre-scouted and proven hotspots. The land is strictly meant to hold, grow and kill mature whitetail. A beautifully maintained trail system wraps nearly 7-miles throughout the estate offering exceptional access to and from stand locations with varying winds in mind.
This epic daydreamer offers endless potential for those who simply can’t take their mind off giant whitetail. The ag ground fades into a mature mix of timber bellowing to 14-different ridge points. These distinct outcroppings are home to sublime bedding areas holding several doe family groups and mature buck bedrooms. Hidden fields offer an array of inside corner hot-spots and edges, which whitetail are instinctively drawn to. The vast farmland is complimented by the terrain. Numerous funnels and pinch-points are naturally occurring due to the topography of the property, which is precisely illustrated on the map. The sellers have planted over 10,000 pine trees on the property, which has created optimal thermal cover and a shed hunting gold mine!
It’s safe to say that this property is one of the most sought-after land tracts in the Midwest for hunters looking to score on world-class whitetail. You may have to travel thousands of miles across America’s heartland to find any property that can even replicate this optimal estate that’s priced to sell. The superior quality and diverse mixture of habitat alone makes this whitetail wonderland a destination to see for yourself.
Now is the time to take advantage of this world-class estate. Consider this property a must-see if you have any interest in owning some of richest deer dirt in the state. I urge you to see it firsthand with me on a private showing. For more info, please contact Southwest Wisconsin Land Specialist Brandon Wikman at 608.403.6003 or Joe Nawrot at 608.381.1627.
