37.56 +/- Acres of Big Buck Paradise with great build site in Perry County, Southern Illinois

If there has ever been a time that I have walked a property and just knew that it held big bucks, today was it! If you don't know the caliber of bucks that Southern Illinois has to offer, you are missing out.  Sitting where Sacred Heart Road runs into 152 is just under 40 acres of an outdoor enthusiasts dream. As soon as you pull onto the property, you will forget that you are less than 2.5 miles to the center of Du Quoin. Roughly 3 acres of  well mowed grass opens up possibilities for several ideal sites to build your dream home or hunting cabin. Clearing out some over-grown edges would open up a great back-deck view of a half acre pond.  There are several ponds scattered throughout the property. There is an established trail system allowing you to move quietly to your stand, and multiple access points to get in, no matter the wind. There are a few grassy areas that are just begging to be planted as food plots. There is also a nice area bordering the east side of the pond that's just over a half acre that would be great to plant some standing corn or beans. Even with the potential of bringing deer in with these possible food plots, I am 100% confidant a person can hunt this property as it sits, and have plenty of chances to kill big deer. The trails the deer have made on this land speak for themselves. Everywhere you look, there are tracks, and they have hammered down trails all over the place! Take a look at the included pictures, and you will not only see the trails, but some giant deer that have called this 37 acres home over the past few years. If this doesn't sound like enough, less than 15 minutes to the west is almost 20,000 acres of recreational land at Pyramid State Park. If you are looking for  a great piece of  affordable land to hunt or build your dream home on, and hunt trophy deer out your back door in Southern Illinois, then this is it! This property sits in a great, centrally located area only 1.5 hours southeast from St. Louis, 20 miles north of Carbondale, IL, and only 3.5 hours from both Louisville, KY and Nashville, TN.
