This spectacular property is located about 40 minutes west of Minocqua. It is a massive 2,080 acres in size (52 40s that are all contiguous). On the way to the property, you pass through a covered bridge (similar to what you would see in Madison County) in the Chequamegon National Forest to the entrance of the property. The Chequamegon forms the southern border and to the north, it's the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage. To the west of the property is the Hay Creek/Hoffman Lake State Wildlife Area, while State of Wisconsin land is on its eastern border.
This property has approximately 700 feet of frontage on the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage, including a private boat landing and picnic areas with sandy and rocky shoreline. The frontage is in a very remote southern section of the 13,545-acre flowage, and the view is a lot like something you'd see in Canada. The property purchase also comes with the exclusive ownership of a small island. Located in the center of the property are Lake Betty, a 15 acre, 15-foot deep private lake, two trout ponds and a whole mile of trout stream. The property is gated, and beyond the borders, marshland areas create a physical barrier that makes it difficult for anyone to walk into the property from the State lands. There are also a couple of large private parcels bordering the property. They all add up to make this property an exceptionally private and relaxing setting.
The main house is complete with a walkout basement, bath, kitchen, living room and real (full masonry) fieldstone fireplace. There is also an additional real fieldstone fireplace in the basement. A drilled well and septic system serve the house. Electricity is supplied by a generator system with a second backup generator; both fueled by propane. There is a large pole barn for all the equipment, and there is a pavilion for equipment and firewood storage. While the property is excellent for family gatherings, hunting seasons, and long-weekend vacations, the real fun is shooting trap from the deck or shooting at the pistol range; both located at the main house. For afternoons and evenings, the raised fire pit is a great place to hang out and cook over the fire. The property has an incredible road system with a network of graveled roads wide enough for 50-foot RVs and tons of 4-wheeler trails totaling roughly 40 miles.
Deer hunting on this property has been unreal over the years. The current owner has focused hard on quality deer management (QDM). The forest is incredibly diverse with tons of edges created by timber management. On the property are a dozen or so permanent deer stands, most of which are elevated and heated for utmost comfort. All of the owners' four daughters have hunted on the property and have monster buck mounts to show for it. We've attached several pictures of their bucks that dressed out at over a phenomenal 200 pounds. On our first tour of the property, we saw two grouse, a porcupine, a hawk, two eagles, and probably 35 deer from our 4-wheeler, oh and a huge cedar tree with bear teeth marks in it (that was a first for us!!). The property is littered with food plots, and it sports an incredible 300-yard rifle range with dugouts for spotters.
We hope you enjoy the pictures - this is the ultimate in privacy, the ultimate in hunting, and the ultimate legacy parcel.
