WILDLIFE & RECREATION

No listing of its size on the market today boasts the diversity and quality blend of whitetail deer, waterfowl, and fishing as the Parsons Slough Ranch. The property was formerly a shooting preserve for pheasants with established birds available in huntable populations. Located in the central flyway, the open water of the river and area sloughs combined with adjacent croplands make this a waterfowler’s paradise.  Whitetail deer in the 150’’ range are attainable. Fishing for Brown and Rainbow Trout will keep you busy for days on the property or in one of the area’s other blue ribbon streams. This is truly a sportsmans paradise with unlimited potential to be enhanced via flood plots and aquatic enhancement.

LAND

The topography of the property is mostly level over the 130+/- acres. It appears that approximately 90 acres are flood irrigated on the property currently. Similar area flood irrigated hay crops are in the 1.5 ton-per-acre range. The slough and this section of the river typically sustain colder temperatures prior to freezing allowing stock water and waterfowl habitat later in the year.

RANCH IMPROVEMENT

Currently, the property is a blank canvas unencumbered with buildings; however a permitted septic system exists on the northern end of the property. The presence of this permit will eliminate a host of costs and time when it comes to building your dream home.

CONSERVATION EASEMENT

The property is not currently encumbered by any conservation easement.
