Why You'll Love It

900 acres m/l. Pope County Illinois HUNTING RANCH FOR SALE - Trophy Whitetail
Deer – Waterfowl – Turkey. This is a Spook Spann Signature Property that has been
strategically developed and intensely managed by Spook Spann and his father Dennie
Spann for over a decade. With the recent passing of Dennie Spann, the estate has decided
to sell this legacy family property.

This Illinois Ranch has a history of producing Boone & Crockett Whitetails over 200
inches and consistently harbors some of the finest genetics and age structure in the
country. The area is well-known for its quality of hunting, and this specific tract of land
offers one the best opportunities to harvest that deer of a lifetime.

The ranch has also been developed as a First-Class Waterfowl Hunting Property with
essential habitat, food sources and best management practices. Duck Blinds, Flooded
Timber, Planted Crops and Geographic Landmarks combined with consistent Migratory
Flyways put this property at the top of the food chain for Waterfowl Hunting.

The Habitat is a diverse mixture of Timber, Cropland, Food Plots, Ponds, Timber and
Cypress Marsh. The landscape ranges from open fields to dense cover with everything in
between. Grass and thicket bedding areas skirt the cropland and water sources with
mature timber-covered areas delivering all aspects of the finest hunting opportunities

Through an intense development strategy including the Wetlands Reserve Program with
habitat incentives, this Spook Spann Signature Property cannot be compared to anything
else currently on the market. There are multiple deer blinds in place, crops actively being
planted, documented wildlife inventory, and the property continues to be professionally
managed specifically for trophy hunting purposes. There is a WRP Easement in place on
this land.

Located south of Dixon Springs, Illinois (in southern Illinois near the Ohio River).
Approximately half-way between Nashville, Tennessee (160 miles) and St. Louis,
Missouri. (155 miles).
