Property Description

Have you ever heard the terminology, “It’s not how many acres you own, it’s the quality of the acres you own” or in the real estate business, we like to say ” Location, Location”. Well, this little slice of duck hunting heaven is just that.

Alexander Co. 4 is located in the SW portion of Illinois which is known for is it’s heavy waterfowl history. If that lifts your eyebrow, then saying that this 4 acre piece has the Mississippi river 1/2 mile to the west and the Horseshoe Lake Waterfowl Refuge 1 1/2 miles to the northeast will surely get your blood pumping.

In this tract of dirt you will not have anything that you won’t need. There is approximately 3 1/2 acres of tillable with the remaining ground consisting of timbered fence rows on the south and west property line. Through the summer this property stays dry, which makes it perfect for growing food for duck season. In the winter it floods naturally making it the perfect scenario for pulling in flights of ducks. There is currently one 4 man blind in the NE corner. The property is setup if the incoming owner wanted to put in a pit and build a small levi to control the water. There is also electricity on the property if you wanted to drill a well and install a pump making this ground great even if Mother Nature decided not supply enough rain to flood it for season.

All in all…this property is perfect for the hunter that wants his or her own personal duck hole without breaking the bank.

Here are a few interesting facts about the Alexander duck Hole..

This little slice of duck hunting heaven is in a very sparsely populated area of SW Illinois but is only 3.5 miles from a local gas station and market for all your daily needs and is 17.5 miles from a Days Inn for your over night stays. It is also in the middle of two great pieces of water, .5 miles from the Mississippi River and 1.4 miles from the Horse Shoe Lake Refuge which on January 4th of 2016 the IL DNR reported that there where 96,575 ducks and 103,500 Snow and Blue geese sitting on the refuge.
