The thriving deer population in the area finds the cover and food staples on this property very desirable. The on-site crops, as well as adjacent planted fields are the additional resources that keep deer, turkey, grouse and other wildlife coming to this property. Tree stands are found throughout the property along mowed trails and along field edges and hedgerows. The owner has a history of leasing the agricultural and hunting rights, where the revenue generated about covers the annual property taxes. Both are currently leased.
An un-named seasonal stream traverses the parcel providing water for wildlife and a place for the kids to find salamanders and crayfish during the summer months. Other sources of water include a man-made pond adjacent to the old farmstead site off Grant Road and a surface well covered with a tin roofed structure that was full to the brim! Boundary evidence is mostly in the form of paint, blazes and posters along old fence lines, some with rocks and boulders cleared from fields long ago.
