    Property Details

    Attention all serious whitetail and turkey hunters! This 70.45 acres has a proven history of producing trophy whitetail deer year after year, and just might be the most unique and secluded hunting property you will come across anywhere in the Midwest. Formerly part of the 13,000+ acre Savanna Army Depot, this property is one of just a few parcels within the former Depot that was made available for private ownership. You will be hard pressed to find a property with less human influence or hunting pressure, as the property is surrounded by thousands of acres of restricted public access preserve land owned by US Fish and Wildlife. In fact, the roads leading to the property are not even open to the public and a special key is required to access the area. Not only is the location and history of the property unique, but the habitat will have you questioning if you are actually in Illinois. Scattered through the timber you will find various species of Oaks, Locust, Elm, and Cherry among other hardwood species and the outside of the timber is native prairie with scattered Cedars throughout. With sandy soils throughout the former Depot, a reliable water source was hard to find until the seller installed a well powered by solar to feed a large watering hole. The watering hole has been key to the property's rich whitetail history, and game trails can be found coming from all directions to visit for a drink. In addition to whitetails, the property has about as much turkey sign as you can find anywhere in the area. Remnants of the old depot are found on the property, including a dozen old buildings and railroad spurs. If you are a serious hunter and are looking to get away from neighboring hunting pressure, look no further as this property offers a monopoly on the local herd and the animals go mostly undisturbed year round. There is a permanent easement for railroad spurs that does occasionally get used for the storage of rail carts.
