Have you been searching for the ultimate hunting and recreational property for sale in South Central Wisconsin? This revered rural real estate located in Juneau County consists of an expansive 107.5-acres thriving with trophy whitetail, flocks of waterfowl and wild turkey. Most notably, you’ll find this property a mere 3-miles from the beautiful blue shorelines of Castle Rock Lake. Recognized as one of the most coveted tracts in the region, this totally tailored hunt-ready property is outfitted with a plug-n-play outdoorsman’s package. Consider this your one-in-a-million chance to purchase a world-class hunting property that’s build-ready in an area referred to as the Midwest’s Best Kept Secret. Hailed as “Castle Rock Ranch,” this premiere outdoor enthusiast’s retreat is the perfect getaway for adventurers and vacationers alike.
You’ll find the entrance of Castle Rock Ranch conveniently located just 5-minutes from Interstate 90/94 off Exit 61. The land is bordered by road frontage on the northerly as well as westerly boundary for absolute access with two established driveways secured by locked gates. A superior build-site lies hidden amongst the timber that’s already been perc-tested and ready for a single-family residence or hunting cabin. You’ll find high-speed fiber optic internet cable running along the roadway of 9th Ave S & 32nd St. The build site is located off 9th Ave S and per the electric coop you would just need to run power from a transformer located off 32nd st in the event that you decide to build a dwelling.
The overall layout and composition of the estate provides unique attributes not regularly found on many recreational properties. In fact, you’ll find over 1-mile worth of water frontage bisecting the center of the land thanks to the meandering flow of the Little Yellow River. Most commonly known for bass, bluegill and perch, this sand bottom stream provides the most fanciful architecture to the overall habitat of the land. Rich diversity of gentle rolling oak flats to brushy thickets and tall pine forests collectively encompass this compelling call of the wild.
The land has been meticulously developed and managed for the sole purpose of growing, holding and hunting trophy class whitetail deer in an unfamiliar area not often referenced by the lips of those Boone & Crocket seekers. This low-key and somewhat omitted refuge holds the ideal recipe to chase record book bucks a stone’s throw from the 4th largest lake in Wisconsin. While most chase the lake’s walleye run or boat scene, others sit quietly perched in a tree on a brisk November morning awaiting their quarry. The land is decorated with 3-distinct food plots that have been strategically placed along high-density bedding areas. These honey hole plots are essential deer draws due to the fact the nearest row crop fields are several miles away. It’s not uncommon to elicit wildlife from afar and stockpile them onto the property throughout the later part of the season between both the unmatched browse and green fields.
There are 9-stand sites erected in calculated areas throughout the ranch in pinch-points and plot edges featuring 2-Titan Hunting Blinds, 1-Hawk Panel Blind and an assortment of Big Game Ladder Stands. While there’s a slurry of designated spots available to hunt for varying wind options, the carefully plotted kill spots remain on the outer edges of sanctuary bedding areas that simply do not get infiltrated. This marquee setup provides low-pressure, minimal impact hunting with extremely favorable results. The land comfortably hunts a minimum of 6-people at one time if you so choose.
You’ll find well over a mile’s worth of groomed trail systems to access some of the deepest and desolate areas of the land. Many of the trails are truck-wide worthy for seamless deer recovery. As you penetrate the woodlands, you’ll find a dynamic mix of predominantly oak, maple and pine tree varieties at varying age structure. A superior burst of woody stem count fill-in the canopied tree gaps. As you get closer to the river that bisects the land, you’ll begin penetrating deer heavy thickets, marshlands and wooded islands. Each trail is marked by name along with stand sites heavily flagged as well as branded by number. This provides effortless mapping and hunting strategy.
What makes this property so special is the mind-boggling amount of adjacent public land that is virtually and by all stretches difficult to access in some areas. Over 1,600-acres of bordering land provides an oasis for deer to stack-on years of age. While some may loathe public land, this is something to love. The vast majority of the public land is riddled with jungle-like cover, treefalls and dense undergrowth to such an extent that one may not see past their very nose. Very crude timber cuts on the neighboring grounds have created nothing more than an impenetrable rats’ nest. While quite nasty, some of the antlered deer that sneak in-and-out of that labyrinth are nothing short of monsters.
The land itself caters to those that simply enjoy spending quality time afield on a feature rich estate bursting with potential. You can literally jump on your ATV/UTV from this property and drive open backroads to visit restaurants and lake bars along with tearing into countless miles of wooded county trail routes open to the public! You won’t find a property that’s as turnkey and hunt-ready as this tract in the Midwest. The property was professionally designed with habitat improvement strategies by some of the top names in the business for an all-out outdoorsman’s gold mine. The moment you purchase the property allows you to hunt, camp and create countless memories over a campfire. There’s even a 100-yard shooting range! This is literally as good as it gets all within the thriving lake district of Castle Rock Lake. Fish the calm lake waters in the morning, take the family waterskiing at noon and be in a treestand by dark! This is the ultimate getaway for family fun.
