Rare Opportunity To Belong To The Historical Lower 40 Duck Club


This is a rare opportunity to belong to the historical Lower 40 Duck Club. As far back as the 1920s, this club has been in existence and has been known as one of the premier private clubs on the Illinois River. This is a turn-key club that has 5 ownership shares available, with 11 members total in the club. The Lower 40 encompasses approximately 318 acres and lays adjacent to the Illinois River. With 7 maintained blinds available and room for an additional 3-4, this creates a lot of opportunity for each member. Strategically located is over 30 acres of levied food plot fields that are planted and flooded each year with the 1,000 gallon per minute electric irrigation pump. As any avid waterfowler knows, controlling your water is critical when hunting over planted food. The club also has the ability to pump water out if necessary. Additionally, there are approximately 100 acres of Illinois River backwater lake waterfowl hunting. If you also like to whitetail deer hunt, there is great river bottom deer hunting available to each member. A private ferry is used to access the club property, adding to the history of the Lower 40 Duck Club. Other than the lake hunting area, another huge bonus is members can access each blind or hunting area by land or water. Included in the club membership is access to the 2,000 square foot 4 bedroom, 1.5 bath clubhouse that is available for your overnight stays. There is an invaluable list of equipment also included that can be provided upon request. For more details and to schedule a private showing, please call the listing agent.
