Agent Comments

What is the Grand River area known for?  Big bucks and good property managment.  What a super opportunity to own a small acreage property with timber, water, crop and home all in one location.  You can live and play right at home.  Its got good income potential on the tillable acres or can be a nice open pasture for your cows.  For the hunter it would make a great basecamp in Decatur County and its only 5 miles from each of the large public hunting areas Sand Creek State Wildife Area and Decatur State Wildlife Area.  This is a great neighborhood of big buck minded landowners that have taken care to cooperate and grow big.  This cooperative neighborhood allows your investment to achieve its maximum potential as a hunting property.
