750'ish acres Western KY, Crittenden County, Crop land...
Crittenden County, close to Shady Grove.
I finally got the farm I've been trying to get for almost 2 years.
We are putting 6 hunters on the farm. This being said, of the 5 guys I have right now, 4 of us have other KY property to hunt and we hunt a bunch of ground in IL.
I was told there is a house with power on the land, I do not know what condition it is in. If we choose, I was also told it would be about $1500 to get the water repaired.
There is also a bed and breakfast close by, it is nice and clean. The lady charged me $30 per night my last stay last April. There is also room for a camper.
The main reason I am interested in this farm is because there is potential for B&C bucks. There have been some very nice bucks taken off this property and in the area. I spoke with the local biologist and he told me he personally knew of 15 B&C bucks taken from Crittenden last year. He also told me some of the better hunting in the county is around Shady Grove.
Last year when I looked at the property, the crops were beans, therefor they should be heavy with corn this year, followed up with wheat.
I do not have the turkey rights.
2 main rules:
I am looking for 2 hunters that will let young bucks walk, harvesting mature bucks ONLY!!!! Feel free to kill all the does you want, either real early season or late season (we don't need to be killing does during the rut).
No drama, if drama follows you around, please keep walking. If it's not fun, it's not worth it.
If you are seriously interested, SEND A PM with your email address or phone # and I will send you what I have (pics and aerials).
We are looking for someone with other Midwest places to hunt or has limited time to hunt, and no one local (sorry), we want to keep the pressure as low as possible.
$1800 per hunter.

Hunted all around shady grove. There is a place there that does hunts and they shoot the piss out of deer. There are one or 2 monsters killed off the guys property every year. But the up and comers get hammered. Loved hunting shady grove area. Tons of deer. If your close to the farm on brown rd., that allows no hunting then your setting right. Big deer on that place, saw them every year, never lucky enough for one to cross my path for a shot. Good luck awesome place

We are in-between Shady Grove and Marion, and there have been several monsters taken from this property as well.

Wow, he is a big buck with a lot of character. I have seen a few bucks killed from this land, very similar size and character.

Looks like a great place. I mean a shame for bow hunters only

I bow hunt 98.94562537% of the year, getting my boom stick out on one of my farms for the remaining 1.1% is not a shame.

Trust me, if I can get it for less, I would, and hunt less people.
