Affordable Hunting Property Near Carlyle State Fish And Wildlife Area


This is a very secluded property with diverse hunting opportunities. It has a recorded, deeded easement access, a locked gate on the county road, and another locked gate once the easement reaches the property. Bordering the east side of the property are thousands of acres of state ground that could be accessed and hunted from this property if desired. The Carlyle State Fish and Wildlife area holds thousands of ducks which makes this a really good waterfowl area along the Kaskaskia River. Approximately 10 acres of this tract can be flooded to attract waterfowl. On the west side of the Kaskaskia River directly west of this property is a 700-acre duck club complete with 23 water control systems that allow the club to flood 215 acres of timber and crops. (I have added a link to the 700-acre duck property) When you combine that with the 1.5 miles of Kaskaskia River frontage and the Carlyle Fish and Wildlife Area, this makes for an amazing waterfowl flyway! There is a good trail system throughout the property to lead you through the thick timber to and from the approximate 20 acres of food plot openings. There are 30 acres of CRP that generate $5,000/year in income. There are several deer stands, one an elevated, enclosed stand on approximately 5 acres that is open and waiting for someone to put a food plot in. We have priced this property to sell and with the past hunting history and the wildlife it holds it will sell. Call us today to take a look!
