Topography, Rangeland & Habitat
This property is all about the ducks! Approximately 40 acres have been laser leveled and leveed to produce shallow waters that ducks and geese love to feed and roost in. The four cuts are irrigated by electric wells via underground piping and are connected by aluminum water boxes for water level management. The levees are driveable for easy access to the blinds. Between the duck ponds and the road, the property is native pasture, and there is a nice stand of scattered hardwoods that would make a great location for a permanent lodge.
The property sits on a high piece of ground in this area with none of the property showing to be located within the 100 or 500-year flood plains, per FEMA maps.
Ducks, geese and cranes are the primary game species on this property. Hogs, varmints and the occasional white-tailed deer will travel through. Dove hunting in the area can be excellent.
