Of the property's 894.2ׅ± acres, about 190± acres are open, including over 30± acres of bottom ground next to Fox Creek. The other cleared land consists of pasture, hayfields and multiple food plots ranging in size from micro plots for bowhunting, to large alfalfa fields with Redneck blinds for gun hunting. The pastures will run 100 head of cattle and will produce 3-4 bales of hay per acre. It has some mature timber, and a blend of hardwoods with many different varieties of oak trees, including red, black and white, as well as hickory and black walnut trees. There are also the beautiful dogwoods and redbuds, and fruit trees including paw paws and persimmons, along with the short leaf pines and cedars. The topography has a great combination of ridges and draws, benches and south facing slopes. There are beautiful rock outcroppings as well as some waterfalls. Lonesome Dove has been strictly managed to produce large, mature whitetails and has an excellent turkey population.
Property also holds many other wild game species, such as bear and bobcats, as well as great fishing and gigging spots on the river! The Missouri Department of Conservation has announced that in the fall of 2021, MO will most likely have its first bear season! We have no wild hogs in the area, but a healthy coyote and bobcat population so you can do some predator control during the winter months to get you through until shed hunting, morel mushroom picking, and turkey season starts! The miles of roads through the property will give you many options to get to your food plots, tree stands and blinds. Many Redneck and other blinds will stay with the property.
