Richland Creek Waterfowl Property For Sale Near Belleville


If you are a duck hunter, you have finally found a honey hole minutes from Belleville. The owner, an engineer by trade, has extensive knowledge and experience in land conservation and soil types. This tract was tillable years ago, and the owner turned it into a waterfowl paradise, the Richland Creek Mitigation Bank (RCMB) excavation, by planting trees and shrubs and fixing and maintaining stream banks. RCMB is the first mitigation bank approved in the United States to offer both wetland and stream mitigation. I have included some reading materials that describe this project that was finished some 15 years ago. The bottom line is that a portion of a tillable farm field was developed into a spectacular waterfowl hunting destination just minutes from Belleville. There is one large blind in place , but the farm also has several great spots for additional blinds. There is plenty of thick cover for the deer hunting enthusiast as well. Teal season will be kicking off soon with duck and goose following close behind. Call me now for a private showing!
