Waterfowl And Whitetail Hunting Property Bordering Rend Lake


Here is an amazing duck, goose and deer hunting property that adjoins the 38,000 acre+ Rend Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area. There are an approximate 40 acres of timber that has an oxbow, (a low area in the timber) that holds water and curves around the backside of the 15 acres of tillable. When we were walking along this oxbow, mallards and wood ducks were flushing out in front of us and up through the treetops. The owner floods the lower 4-acre portion of the 15 acres tillable each year with a 2 pump system. There is also a device that allows him to drain it after duck and goose season. You combine the flooded 4 acres tillable, the waterfowl in the timber, and the tremendous amount of wildlife that Rend Lake Wildlife Area holds and you have the best of both waterfowl and deer hunting I have seen. In the center of the 4 acres tillable is a 12’ concrete duck/goose blind. All around the edges of the tillable are huge rubs and trails as you can see in our pictures. On the front west side of the property is 2.5 acres where the owners have enjoyed really good goose hunting and fishing. As we were packing up, several flocks of Canadian geese started working the area around us as you can also see in our pictures. Access is a deeded easement along the south side of the neighbor to the west. Included in the sale is a 3320 Zeton tractor with all of the implements to take care of the land. These are stored in a huge steel storage container on the property. This piece does have electric on it so the possibility of putting a cabin, house, or pole barn is there. If you are looking for a waterfowl, deer, turkey hunting property, you have to see this piece. You will not believe the amount of waterfowl and deer sign on this tract. Call us today to take a look!
