Farm has a long history of excellent duck hunting from pits and tree lines in flooded fields and from wading sloughs and green timber holes. The farm is located in an intense waterfowl flyway, with major influence from the Cache River and White River NWR’s to the West and Big Creek and L’Anguille River to the East. Thousands of acres of neighboring farms are flooded up for ducks after harvest because of this flyway location.
The farm lays in a manner that will allow cost efficient land forming, with levees and water control structures for better crop production and duck hunting. Some of this dirt work can be done with cost assistance from the government. The results would allow for major income increases in farm and duck hunting rent. The annual farm rent for 2019 is $168,000.00 and is due for renewal and increase for 2020. The annual duck hunting lease is $25,000.00 for 3 years paid September 1.Grain bins rent for $6,000.00
