Year-Round Hunting And Rec Tract With Cabin On The Mississippi River


Every once in a while you come across a property that offers various recreational opportunities for the entire family throughout the year and this is one of those pieces. Whether you are an avid deer hunter, waterfowl hunter, boater, fishing enthusiast, or just looking for a quite getaway, this property has something for everyone. With good access off of the Carman blacktop and a long private drive heading back to the property, this is a very secluded and peaceful setting. The cabin is a great place for a weekend getaway for fishing or boating the river and would also be a great hunting camp during the fall and winter. If you are an avid waterfowl hunter, you know the number of green heads and Canadians this area holds during the fall and with over 3,800’ of river frontage, you have numerous locations for a blind and decoy spread. With good connecting habitat to the north and south, this property is also a great deer hunting spot, especially during the rut with those river bottom bucks cruising. If you are an avid pleasure boater or an avid fisherman that enjoys the challenges and rewards the Mighty Mississippi River offers, this property offers direct access to the river and a great place for a boat launch and private dock. Not only is this property a great recreational property for just about everyone, this is also a great investment property. The current owners have had nine, 1 acre lots surveyed on the southwest corner of the property which could be sold or leased for future cabin sites. This would provide a good return on your investment. If you are in the market for an investment property, summer camp, or just looking for a good deer or waterfowl hunting property, give me a call today for more info or to schedule a showing.
