Located in the heart of the Mississippi River flyway is this unique property that offers some of the best waterfowl and deer hunting the Midwest has to offer and a substantial investment return. The property is in pool 20 of the Mississippi River between Meyer and Warsaw on the western side of the river. Being an island, the first question that comes to mind is how close is the nearest boat ramp. The great thing about this property is that the nearest public boat ramp is a mere 1.5 miles south of the property on the Missouri side at Fenway Landing, or you can put it in at Warsaw or Keokuk to the north. The property had been farmed in prior years and recently enrolled in CRP. There are currently 113 acres enrolled in CRP, paying $17,101 annually through a natural regeneration program. The island has several internal sloughs that either hold water or have the ability to be flooded, offering great waterfowl hunts. You can also hunt some backwater sloughs or out along the main river. The location in the Mississippi flyway and just 2.5 miles south of the Fox Island division of the Great River National Wildlife Refuge makes this an excellent waterfowl property. The property also offers excellent deer hunting. Being an island, you can use a boat to your advantage to access just about any stand location via water and ultimately go undetected and not bump deer by strategically hunting the property. One significant aspect of an island is neighbors' lack of hunting pressure. The island essentially serves as a giant sanctuary for deer when pressured on neighboring properties. The Mississippi River offers tremendous fishing and boating opportunities providing many recreational opportunities for the entire family to enjoy outside of hunting season. If you are in the market for a property with a strong return on your investment that offers both deer and waterfowl hunting opportunities, give the listing land specialist a call today for more information or schedule a private showing.
