This 262-acre Putnam County farm has been setup for some of the finest waterfowl and deer hunting opportunities you will find in Illinois. The current owner worked directly with Ducks Unlimited to design and establish the 5 wetland cells that can be flooded with one pumping station.
The individual wetland cells create a unique opportunity to establish a great diversity in your wetland feed. The wetlands can be flooded at different time frames giving you the opportunity to control when and where ducks will be feeding throughout the hunting season. There is a Bradley Blind (Steel Pit) in one of the levees. There are numerous locations to build permanent or floating blinds giving you the ability to hunt the right blinds with the right wind, or it opens the avenue of generating income by leasing a few of the blinds to other hunters.
If the duck hunting is slow, don’t forget about the giant whitetails that roam these parts of the river bottom. This property has excellent pinch points and travel corridors, along with ideal locations for fall food plots to help hold deer on this property.
The property is an ideal waterfowl location l as it sits within a few miles of the well known “Hennepin Hopper” (Dixon Waterfowl Refuge), between Henry and Hennepin along the Illinois River – approximately 2 hours from downtown Chicago.
This property is within 3.1 miles of the 86 acre Putnam County listing being offered by LandGuys. Combined these two properties offer a unique opportunity to own an absolutely beautiful “Turn-key” recreational property complete with great deer, duck, and turkey hunting.
