Illinois Land Company finished selling The John Buck Farm by selling a 2557 acre parcel last week. Every tract of The John Buck Farm is now officially under contract. A 3006 acre farm all pending in less than 3 months!

Add this to a week in which Illinois Land Company sold two farms in Knox County totaling about 225 acres and one 180 acre farm in Peoria County and its safe to say Illinois Land Company had its best week in recent memory. Illinois Land Company is now on the prowl for more listings! If you or anyone you know is looking to sell a farm, we would love the opportunity to talk to you and show you what we can do. Our results speak for themselves, but we are sure you will be impressed by our progressive and innovative approach.

It was a pleasure working for Mr. Buck and all his employees…without question, an exceptional group of people from top to bottom. This has been one of the most enjoyable and rewarding projects I have had the opportunity to work on.

Flip through the pics above (using the arrows or by clicking on the pictures) to see how amazing the fishing was. These were all caught Tuesday, April 3. I lost one of the sd chips which showed several more 3 pound plus fish. Quite simply, the day was amazing. Chef Todd of the Illinois Land Company ProStaff and his boating partner boated several 5 pounders, one 6.2 pounder, and one 7.4 pound bass! All in one afternoon! Amazing. They also took a break from the bass fishing to try their hand at Crappie Fishing. They boated nearly 40 keepers before they switched back to trophy bass fishing.

I fished with Kelly Presley of Presley Outdoors. We caught dozens of fish including several in the three pound range. Our highlight was when Kelly snagged two big catfish within about five casts of each other.

I will add the new pics as soon as I find the other camera.
