I-55 Corporation Duck Club Property Brochure

“One of the easiest and most consistent duck hunting properties in the Memphis Area”


Just 15 – 20 minutes from Memphis, lies one of the best kept secrets in Arkansas Duck Hunting – it’s the I-55 Corporation Duck Club. This old farm property was successfully converted into a conservation reserve program (CRP) and developed for hunting and wildlife 15 years ago. The results from the wildlife restoration and conservation project, planted hardwood trees, and waterfowl moist soil infrastructure has turned this property into an amazing wildlife and recreation paradise.

The property is easily accessible from I-55 just northwest of Memphis near the community of Turrell, Arkansas. The property is gated and fenced making it very private and secluded for wildlife. A well maintained gravel road brings you into the property and lands you at a cabin or house site with power and water readily available. From there you can easily access the remainder of the property by truck or atv and quickly and easily access all of the duck hunting blinds and or deer stands.

The property consists of +/- 720 acres and comes with two operational wells – both of which are now used for flooding the various impoundments for waterfowl hunting. The property is currently being leased for hunting and the lessee has reportedly consistent mallard duck hunting and deer hunting across the property over the past several years. One of the main features of I-55’s property is Big Creek and Cypress Bayou. Both of these tributaries run thru and alongside the property providing access to surface water for flooding and a great flyway and rest area for ducks in the area. Another key feature of I-55’s success over the years is its proximity to Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge – which is adjacent to the property and holds thousands of waterfowl all season long. The current owner and lessee reported that hundred if not thousands of mallards come off of Waponooca Refuge every day and use the I-55 property for food and additional resting areas. Another noteworthy hunting property just across the highway from I-55 Duck Club is Mallards Unlimited – which is also known for excellent duck hunting.

Many years ago, a Deer Management Program was implemented on the I-55 property and as a result the deer are plentiful across the property. Several mature bucks are taken from the property each year. There are some wild turkeys living on the I-55 property as well and are being seen more regularly on trail cameras and by neighboring farmers. Last but not least, there is 5 acre stocked reservoir on the property that provides a great spot to relax and enjoy fishing either by boat of from the bank. The reservoir could also serve as an additional water source for future farming or flooding for waterfowl.

In summary, this is a true recreational investment property in a great waterfowl area and just a short drive from Memphis and the surrounding area. A history of duck hunting success and a solid investment opportunity for an individual, a family, or a small group of hunters – this property is a very rare find. Bring a reasonable offer and this could be your next hunting property.
