Located east of Madras and north of Prineville lies West Hensley Butte, some of Central Oregon’s best big game hunting grounds. These 640± acres are located in the Grizzly Hunting Unit, one mile by one mile of forested private land, known for great Rocky Mountain elk hunting and very good mule deer hunting.
Landowner preference tags for both buck mule deer and bull Rocky Mountain elk are included with this property (buyer to verify with Oregon Department of Wildlife regarding landowner preference tags). Other wildlife common to this property and area consists of the occasional antelope, cougar, bobcat, black bear, coyote, turkey, and numerous bird species. The year-round spring is a draw for this abundance of wildlife and is a significant resource on this property.
The previous owners completed a large-scale forestry stewardship entry to improve forest health and protection from wildfire and disease. This stewardship planning has also laid the groundwork for better and higher timber growth rates on the current stand of timber.
With easy access from Willow Creek Road, the West Hensley Butte could be just the right hunting and outdoor retreat you have been dreaming of. This tract of ground is exceptional, and properties like this rarely come on the market. Hunt, hike, ATV, camp, and raise heck! You and your loved ones could be enjoying this wonderful and special outdoor property for generations.
