The ranch's landscape reflects nature in it's purist of forms. Rolling hills, glacial-carved wooded ravines, tall-grass pastures, stocked pond, and meandering creek channels (Rock & Spring Creeks) are a proven combination of habitat for trophy whitetail deer, turkey, small & upland game, and migrating waterfowl. Bordering the RLS Ranch to the east, Rock Glen Wildlife Management Area creates an additional 650+ contiguous acres of accessible habitat for wildlife, hiking or riding. Various food sources from neighboring crops, oak stands and the native grasses support and hold a large population of deer & turkey on this property. Various locations support future food plot growth making the property's hunting opportunities even better! Three fields totaling almost 40 acres of CRP are thick with game trails and provides an annual income of $7039 through 2036. Pasture lease is valid through 2023.
