Duck Hunting Hole With Wetland Conservation Potential In Northern AL


Waterfowl enthusiasts, and wetland conservation buyers you will want to take a look at this natural wetland tract. Once a productive cattle farm, this wetland has been morphed into the habitat needed for numerous wetland species, including many species of ducks that call it home. There is tremendous diversity in the plant species growing here that provide natural food and cover for the ducks as well as other wildlife. Some of the plants include cattails, Sedges, Buttonbush, smartweed, and duckweed, just to name a few. It’s a mosaic pattern of vegetation and pockets of water and for some folks, a “swamp” may seem muddy and ugly, but from an aerial perspective, it's actually beautiful, diverse and full of life. Yellow Creek runs along the western border of the property providing the water source and there are approximately 10+/- AC up out of the floodplain that could make an excellent home site, or cabin site, overlooking the wetland. I can imagine sitting on the back porch and watching ducks cupped up, gliding into the open pockets of water below your porch. There are 4 established duck hunting blinds, and two distinctly different “holes”, so you can rotate hunting pressure and have various setups depending on wind direction. The open fields on the upland portion of the tract could be excellent for establishing a dove field. There is a good deer population in the area as well and with the thick cover of the swamp, it would provide great cover for mature bucks. Look at all the photos and I think you will agree this place has an intriguing beauty about it and could have some excellent wetland conservation potential. The surrounding area is rural with views of mountain ridges in the distance. If you love waterfowl, you’ll love this tract, please call for a private showing of this unique farm.
