Affordable WRP Hunting Farm For Sale In West Central IA


Whitetail Properties Real Estate is proud to offer this affordable WRP farm near Whiting. This property has been enrolled in the Wetlands Reserve Program for approximately 10 years.

This farm also has two shallow water ponds on either side of the McCandless Cleghorn drainage that are ideal spots to decoy in mallards or any other migrating ducks in the fall. This property is located right on the edge of the Mississippi and Central flyways so there’s always going to be waterfowl in the area.
