River Bend Waterfowl
Located at the convergence of the St. Francis Floodway and Crowleys Ridge, this 1,360 acre recreational paradise hosts exceptional duck, deer, and turkey hunting. Just east of Haynes, AR, this property consists of 1,274 acres that was enrolled into the Wetlands Reserve Easement (WRE). Over 500 acres of waterfowl moist soil units were constructed and are irrigated by 2 wells. These impoundments are managed for native moist soil grasses and can be partially planted in foodplots each year. This tract holds thousands of mallards, pintails and a variety of other duck species each winter. The remaining acreage in WRE was planted in oak and bottomland hardwoods. Many deer foodplots also dot the landscape. WRE allows for 60 acres of foodplots in addition to the soybean field along the river.
The diversity of this tract is unlike most others. This property is bound on the east side by the St. Francis Floodway. Along the river is a long narrow soybean field that stretches nearly 3 miles. This field is traditionally farmed but acts as a major food source for deer and turkey. The west side of the property is Crowleys Ridge. The ridge is covered in upland white oak, hickory and beech trees. This property lies just north of the 713 Duck Club. The flights of ducks that travel between these properties is second to none. The properties adjacent to the northern and southern boundary are not hunted and also act as rest areas for ducks. This equates to over 2,000 acres of limited to virtually no hunting pressure for ducks and deer.
This property also has a 1,120 sqft camp house that was completely renovated. This cabin has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathroom with full kitchen and living room. The house comfortably sleeps 6. The cabin also has a garage to store hunting gear and ATVs. Waterfowl decoys and hunting equipment are negotiable.
Limits of mallards, Boone and Crocket bucks and gobbling turkeys. To have all on one property truly makes this a special place. This property is offered for sale in its entirety for $2,470 per acre.
