This setting truly has the features a farmer or sportsman search for when looking for property. A higher percentage of the 152 acres +/- is pasture or partially cleared land; yet, there is a good amount of open hardwood areas as well as a spattering of thickets. For the farmer, established pasture with potential for more is an appealing characteristic. As for the sportsman, it possesses all the keys for a true deer, turkey and complete wildlife habitat.
The property is fenced and is currently running around 25 head of momma cows. Seeing how there are three ponds with one of them being fed directly from a spring, the herd can be easily managed during grass growing season. The owner has also run as many as 100 yearlings on the place at one time. A barn is situated at the crest of the hill providing storage for hay and equipment.
If you are a sportsman, this spot is loaded with deer and turkey. For someone interested in creating a big buck management area, this place could certainly make that wish a reality as well. Cover, food plots, water source, low hunting pressure and outskirts of truly rough terrain, give this ground the formula for mature buck hang outs. More importantly, to the south and west of the property lie 1100 acres of the Little Red Wildlife Refuge LLC. Also, there are huge areas of land to the north of the refuge area that also serve as a wildlife protection region. Obviously, no hunting is permitted in these massive areas leaving miles and miles of non-intrusive, non-threatening territory for all the wildlife indigenous to North Arkansas. Also, the low water bridge crossing Red River has easy access just off the mountain and literally minutes from the farm. Red River is home to some of the best small mouth fishing anywhere. One could put a canoe or boat in at the bridge and enjoy a beautiful wilderness float trip to Shirley in one day.
Also, one could opt to both farm and hunt the land. Another option would be to lease the property to a cattle farmer with the agreement to remove the herd before hunting season. This could help pay for the land and also open it up for hunting when the time arrives.
The possibilities are endless for this property. The price is very reasonable for all the features this land possesses. It is very remote but also highly accessible off a county-maintained road. Rural water and power run along the property which would tremendously cut the cost of building a cabin or dream home. Finally, the view from the west rim is incredible and has to be seen to be truly appreciated.
