It is situated in the Southeast Quarter of Section 19 of Bear Creek Township, Hancock County, IL.

Tract 2 contains 70 acres, subject to survey, and is to the east of Tract 1. It is mostly mature timber with a small part being trees approximately 15 years old. Bear Creek runs the full length of this tract.

There are no buildings on this farm. Potential buyers have permission to walk over and inspect the property. Both tracts offer excellent deer hunting, being located in the heart of some of Illinois’ best Whitetail deer hunting. Neither tract is currently enrolled in any government programs. Full possession, including hunting rights, will be conveyed at closing.


Terms of Sale - The two tracts will be offered “Buyer’s Choice” giving the successful bidder the opportunity to take either or both tracts. If only one is selected, the remaining tract will then be sold. Bidding will be on a price per acre basis with a survey to be performed designating the exact acres to be settled on at closing. Ten percent of the bid price will be due at the conclusion of the auction with the balance due within 30 days and upon delivery of a Warranty Deed. Title Insurance will be provided by the Seller.
