PREMIERE WATERFOWL & WHITETAIL HUNTING IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS
***We can possibly split this lease into one for whitetail and one for waterfowl or we could possibly split into two leases for waterfowl/whitetail. Please contact with questions.
A rare find in Southern Illinois. Only 2-1/2 hours from St. Louis Missouri, Evansville, Indiana or Nashville Tennessee. This is a professionally designed WRP waterfowl property that sits in the middle of several bodies of water making it ideal for attracting and holding birds.
5 Blinds on the property. The blinds are above ground and can be strategically moved.
The well known Cypress Creek National Wildlife Refuge that encompasses over 16,000 acres (1000 of which are the Frank Bellrose Waterfowl Reserve), is just 10 miles west of the property. The Cashe River Watershed Basin runs from Cypress Creek N.W.R., all the way north to Karnak, feeding several other nature preserves in the area. This region contains 91% of the state's high quality swamp and wetland communities. With the big Ohio River just 6 miles to the south, you can begin to understand why the location of this waterfowl property makes it consistently great for shooting your limit of ducks and geese.
The property has been professionally designed with several water control board gates that allow you to control the water level on the property.
Please don't overlook the deer hunting potential on this property. If you or anyone in your group are whitetail enthusiasts, this property will not disappoint. This area of Pulaski County has been producing some giant bucks for many years. There are several small pockets of early growth timber scattered around the farm providing nice thick cover that the deer love. They have food, water & cover. We have seen several deer each trip we have made to the farm. There is lots of sign including some great rubs. I have no doubt that the whitetail hunting will add tremendous value to this lease.
After the hunt, head back to the pole barn/lodge that has a small lodging area that you can relax in with heat/air, bathroom with shower, bedroom with 2 beds and a pull out couch in the living room. There is also a small trailer behind the lodge that will sleep 2 additional.
The building is 30x50 and has a nice dry storage area for boat, atv, decoys, stands, etc...
This lease is for the Waterfowl and Deer Season. You must follow all Illinois game laws.
