Wooded with Nice Home Sites and Excellent Deer Hunting

20 acres of nicely wooded land located on the West side of Clay County. This property is just a few miles East of Forbes State Park. This nice little parcel would make a great spot to build! Several nice building spots on this piece, and it has public road frontage along the South and East sides.  There is a nice little holler that would make for a great pond site as well.  Find another couple wanting to build and split it; there is ample room and privacy for a couple of homes.

There is some timber. It appears to me there could be a harvest now, however another 5-10 years might be a better option.  This is upland woods with primarily Oak and Hickory trees.

Deer hunters, let me throw this out there. If you were a blue collar hunter looking for a nice deer patch and on a small budget, look at this parcel.  It’s not something that jumps out at you as a super good killing woods I will admit that.  However, look at Google or send an email and I will point out some things if you don’t see them.  First, I know of very few places where the surrounding area, or at least east, south and west of this parcel, where you can find large tracts of land controlled by a certain family(s).  Within 2 miles of this place, there are huge blocks of land that are controlled by a single family(s). Several of them are avid hunting families with some great standards and ethics as well.  Whenever you’re in the right deer hunting neighborhood, anything is possible during the rut, and this place is one of those. So, to further enhance this little 20-acre patch, I’d clear cut the timber and make it the thickest little woods in a 2-mile radius. We all know what the big bucks like and that’s thick!  Have your timber man leave you a couple well placed paths through these woods strategically located to accommodate several wind directions and for varies stand sites.  You could even open an area for a small food plot or two and add a little deer pond and you are set up in the vicinity of the big boys to find a new home!  Come about October 25th thru the end of the rut, slip in there and catch a big boy coming in to bed after a night of chasing does.  Try a few late seasons hunts on one of your little food plots if the rut doesn't pan out.  Collect some timber money and enjoy the hunt!
