“A turnkey recreational property offering premium duck hunting, deer hunting, and fishing”
Wildlife Acres Farm is a very rare find in the Arkansas delta and offers a proven history of duck and deer hunting. The property is unique in that Bayou Meto runs along the west side of the property and brings with it one of the most concentrated waterfowl flyways in the state. Furthermore, in addition to outstanding duck hunting the large block of woods adjoining the bayou provides exceptional habitat for large whitetail deer and the property produces trophy whitetail bucks each year.
In 2016, the property was taken out of farming production and developed exclusively for wildlife and recreational usage. A good working electric well is strategically located on the property and with the push of a button the operator can easily pump water to any area of the property. Significant dirt work and irrigation upgrades were completed on the property for the improvement and development of Moist Soil Units (MSU’s). By definition, Moist-soil has become one of the leading techniques for creating premium habitat for wintering waterfowl in Arkansas. Moist soil management is the drawdown of water to promote germination of native plants on exposed mudflats and the subsequent reflooding of same areas. The purpose is to promote native plants favored by moist-soil management that provide valuable food and cover for wetland wildlife species. Wildlife Acre’s Moist Soil Units, or impoundments, will hold and control water for wintering waterfowl throughout the property. The property has 9 different Moist Soil areas – all of which can be flooded by the electric well and maintained precisely for hunting. The western impoundment along Bayou Meto is 10.5 acres and has been planted in corn. This unit is strategically managed and is kept unflooded though deer season and then flooded January 1 for duck season. The other 8 impoundments have also all been planted in corn, millet and milo and a few have also been manipulated for native grasses and sunflower. Bottom line, there is no shortage of duck and deer food on this property and with its history in having lots of ducks in years past, these improvements will make it an even more exciting place to hunt. Last but not least, there are 3 large duck blinds strategically placed throughout the property and 3 additional areas where duck hunters can wade and hunt in knee deep water along a tree line. There are 2 tower stands for deer hunting also strategically positioned for the best advantage.
A newly constructed 10-acre Bass Fishing Reservoir with a new dock sits directly behind the house. The reservoir was developed by very well-known Miller Fisheries and was stocked November 1st with over 500 Northern Bass. This reservoir affords great views off the back deck of the house and a great addition to the property.
The 4 bedroom 2 bath house is a Cavalier Deluxe double wide mobile home. It is in great condition and offers very comfortable lodging while staying on the property. Home has oversized bedrooms, spacious bathrooms, a separate laundry room with new washer and dryer, kitchen with center island, living room with working fireplace, and plenty of space for family and friends. Private entry gates were added to the property for additional privacy and comfort.
This properties location is conveniently located just 30 miles east from Little Rock and makes it an easy drive when coming from central Arkansas. South of the community of Lonoke, several of the surrounding land owners and farmers also manage their land for duck and deer and as a result the area has become well-known for its exceptional hunting.
In conclusion, this property has it all – lodging, fishing, deer hunting, and duck hunting. A true year round property that offers an activity for each season. At Wellons Land and Timber we consider this to be an excellent opportunity to purchase one of the most producing and affordable properties we have worked with.
