WRP Recreational Tract with White River Access & Build Site


Mark my words….with some thoughtful planning, this property could be turned into a wildlife mecca. Consisting of 2 large Wetland Reserve Program easements, the bulk of this property is or will be planted in high quality wildlife beneficial tree species at a rate of approx. 550 trees per acre. The WRP acreage is surrounded on the south and west sides by the White River and a strip of mature timber. To the north lies approx. 300 yard wide strip of dense brush spanning the entire width of the property; providing you with a great core bedding area. The eastern side of the property has two islands of timber totaling approx. 13.5+- acres along with a strip of heavy vegetation and scrub brush along the state hwy. All this allows you to take full advantage of the incredible habitat that will exist once the lower fields are planted with trees. On mature WRP properties we typically find a plethora of native forb, grass, and shrub species coming up from the natural seed bed between the tree plantings. These properties almost universally offer some of the best high quality wildlife habitat we see. The WRP contract allows the owner to allocate up to approx. 15 acres to trails and food plots, giving you plenty of acreage to play with. If waterfowl hunting is more your passion, the white river corridor is known for migrating waterfowl. All this property needs is some strategically planted plots of golden millet and mother nature will take care of the rest. With an electrical transmission line running across the southern width of the property, WRP tree planting will be given a buffer, creating a large swath of natural fallow field type habitat. To top all this off, this property is adjacent to public boat ramp access and comes with 22+- acres of high ground including 8.5 acres of income producing tillable. Rounding out this dynamic property, the high ground is a perfect setting for a hunting cabin or camp and features gated access off the highway. If you’ve been searching for a property that you could mold into a quintessential wildlife mecca, this one won’t disappoint. Whether its massive bucks or quacking ducks, this property has got all the right ingredients and with some thoughtful planning, could be turned into a premier hunting property. You owe it to yourself to spend some time with us on this property. We’ve got some great ideas on how you could go about maximizing all that it has to offer.
