Just a few miles west of the Mississippi River and even closer to the Tensas River lies a 285 acre big buck thicket that is also packed with ducks, mallards included. Most of this property has been enrolled in WRP (Wetlands Reserve Program) for years. 54 acres is set up in shallow water areas (SWA) offering great duck hunting. There are 5 permanent wildlife openings (food plots) for deer hunting. A few acres of natural hardwoods (including one of the largest cypress trees in the state) border the north property line along Big Choctaw Bayou. This area, also known as Cooter Point is well known for great deer genetics with many big deer killed in this area. This property has been hunted very little in the past 8 years and is surrounded for miles by WRP, CRP, and bottomland hardwood forests. Buckhorn WMA, Big Lake WMA, and the Tensas River NWR are just a short drive away.
All deer stands plus in ground and skid type duck blinds will stay. Sufficient water to hunt can be supplied if needed by a 12 inch deep water well with 3 underground pipelines that can flood all the shallow water areas. It is powered by a complete portable power unit that stays with the property and can also be powered by tractor PTO.
