Jackson County, Iowa Hunting Land W/scenic Building Sites

$ 649,900
188th St,


This beautiful property has been in the same family for at least 30+ years.  You don't see mixed-use acreages like this come available in Jackson County all that often, and that is just a fact. It has been an income producing property with cattle pasture, has great wildlife habitat, would be perfect for horses and horseback riding, and has scenic country views and multiple potential very nice building spots for a getaway cabin or a primary residence. There are some beautiful hardwood ridges with very mature oaks, hickory, maple, cherry and other species, some very unique rock outcroppings in the woods, and really great views of the surrounding countryside. There is undoubtedly some harvestable timber value if one desired to turn that into some income. Electric and water are on site, inquire for details. Access is via a good quality “A” level road. The property is in a secluded, quiet area of the county but only 12 miles to county seat Maquoketa, 25 miles to Dubuque, and approximately 65 miles or less to both Davenport and Cedar Rapids. The Mississippi River and water activities are only 20 miles away and Maquoketa Caves State Park is 8 miles away.

If you're a deer hunter, Iowa deer records show that Jackson is in the top tier of big buck producing counties in Iowa. There is good wildlife habitat and sign on the property, and both deer and turkey were encountered multiple times while taking photos and video on the property. The amount of hard mast/acorns on this place for deer and turkeys should always be impressive given the huge number of mature oak trees on the property, including many big white oaks. The landowner has not given permission to hunt for many years. Inquire for details. Trail Camera photos and video screen captures of bucks in this listing were taken by my cameras in November, 2021. The property is surrounded on all sides by a mix of crops and some big blocks of woods on neighboring lands.

There are 43 FSA tillable acres which have been being used as cattle pasture. Lease is open for 2022. They could continue to be used as cattle pasture, could potentially be seeded down for alfalfa hay production income, or could be a great deer hunters playground for food plots and potentially some standing crops to attract deer into the Winter. In addition to the 43 FSA tillable acres, there are an additional approximately 3 total open acres that would have the potential to make some very nice huntable food plots. There is 1 good sized pond currently on the property, and 1 cattle tank that is currently filled from the well on the property.
