We named this property the Unicorn. Why the Unicorn? Because unicorns don't exist; that's how good this property is. This property is located in Vermillion County, just west of Newport, IN 47854. What makes this property so rare and unique? First is that it is a 570 acre property with 174 acres tillable and 396 acres of woods. These are not your average wooded acres. These acres have been managed for the last two years. Every inch of this property has been touched, planned, and designed by one of the nation's leading whitetail deer habitat experts, Jim Ward. With years of experience and lifetime of knowledge, Jim knows what it takes to consistently put trophy bucks on the ground. The improvements to this property consist of food plots that total over 30 acres that are well established. Hinge cutting on the property creates travel routes for both deer and hunter movement. Other enhancements are brush walls, dedicated doe and buck bedding areas, and sanctuary. This property is a turnkey property and ready to hunt with all stand and blinds in place. Access to the property is good with multiple entry points and a well-established internal road system that leads to every corner of the property on any wind direction. Locked gates at all entrances keep the property secured. The property also has a new camper that sleeps up to five and a two car garage for storage complete with sink, freezers, and a grill for cooking. Other items included are 2017 Yamaha Viking 700, John Deere 5320 tractor with front bucket, and a Woods 840 brushhog. The camper and outbuilding has all utilities. The property has several nice building sites, some with power already in place. The Little Vermillion River is the the north boundary of the property. It holds water year round and offers freshwater fishing during the warmer months. Most of the south side of the property borders state owned ground that was the former Newport Chemical Depot. If this isn't enough, the new world record buck from Illinois was harvested within 15 miles of here. The wooded acres are steep with a lot of nice trees for plenty of stand locations. The deer sign is everywhere in the form of rubs, scrapes, and trails that have been worn down from years of use. The many ridge tops produce a lot of roosting trees for the resident turkeys. The resident turkeys are quite comfortable with all of the recent timber work. The tree tops and hinge cutting have created an abundant amount of nesting and security cover. The tillable acres sandwich the wooded acres on the east and west. The property is set up to hunt the ridge tops in the morning to intersect the deer as they return to the woods to bed and hunt the transition zones as they return to the fields in the evenings. It's not often that a property of this size with this potential comes available. It has to be seen to truly be appreciated, and we look forward to showing you this property.
