Whitetail Draw Parcel I is one of our most remote properties. It's about 5.8 miles northwest of the little town of Bunker, Mo. (pop. 447) and about 53.8 miles southeast of the considerably larger town of Rolla, Mo. (pop. 19,559). This is a small parcel with big, mature forest, not some clear-cut disaster as the price might suggest. It’s a great place for hunters, naturalists, and people who know their way around very rural locations, so it should come as no surprise that the last quarter-mile of the road into this place is steep and—unless someone’s been driving it recently, and they probably haven’t—then you can expect it to be grown up in chest-high weeds, although one of the owners had cut the weeds when we were there last.
The parcel itself is fairly steep to, but it has 165 feet of frontage on the rather crude access road, and we’ve made a short driveway into the property, which ends in a small clearing that we also cleared. (It’s now likely to be grown up in weeds, or will be by mid-summer). The nearest power-line is about half a mile away, but you’d do better to consider this place off-grid and not sign yourself up for the kind of frustration you’d be subjected to in getting commercial electricity extended down into this secluded hollow and up to your cabin, yurt, or igloo.
If you own a well-broken-in chainsaw and a four-wheel-drive with a few scratches and dings on it, this could very well be the best deal you’ll find on the market today, but if you’re just looking for a place with a lower price than the ones that have all the stuff you really want: i.e. paved-road frontage, DSL, and land-line phone service, you will rue the day you ever saw this place.
On the other hand, if you are a classic, rough-hewn, he-man or he-woman, then you won’t find a better place, better woods, or a better price.

Driving Directions to Locate Whitetail Draw Parcel I:
Whitetail Draw is about 90 minutes southeast of St. Louis in Reynolds County. Assuming you successfully locate Bunker in western Reynolds County, go northwest from there on Hwy. 72 until you get to a sign on the right (north) that says' "Crossville Southern Baptist Church" turn there on this recently-paved road and go 1.1 miles to the first road past the highline, then turn right. Follow that road 1/2 mile (bearing left) When you see our "road" on the left, you've arrived. (If you're unsure, look for the U.S.G.S. survey stake on the left after you've turned in off the county road, this means you have to get out of the vehicle). From the county road, you'll follow this trail down a very steep hill, around a right-angle turn, and then deep into a hollow. You may see a t-post on the left as you drive past, that's Parcel C. Keep going until you see a t-post with pink ribbons on it, on your RIGHT (east), then you'll see another 165 feet beyond it. You have arrived.
