Located in the Kaskaskia River valley of southcentral Illinois, an easy drive from multiple metropolitan areas, River Bend Farm is comprised of 1,148 acres that are dedicated to the management of waterfowl and other wildlife. The property can truly be classified as duck nirvana while also offering very highquality trophy whitetail deer and upland bird populations. Over the last 15 years, this land has been reconstructed from a grain farm to an intensely managed wildlife sanctuary featuring 816 acres enrolled in the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) including a 4.5 mile main levee that surrounds 462 acres, creating 7 separate waterfowl impoundments with watercontrol features. The managed WRP lands have been transformed into optimal waterfowl habitat providing an array of ideal hunting settings. A significant bonus to the development of the waterfowl impoundments has been the fact that they provide excellent habitat for whitetail deer. The quality of the deer hunting on River Bend Farm is tremendous, with Boone & Crockett deer over 190 points having been harvested. There is a solid wild pheasant population on the farm, a growing bobwhite quail population, excellent dove hunting and turkeys are seen regularly. The property boasts more than a mile of Kaskaskia River frontage, 85 acres of tillable farmland and a charming 2,000 square foot log cabin that holds a commanding view of the property and river valley. From this perch and throughout the day one can relax in the comfort of their cabin and watch ducks and geese work into the property by the thousands, or have binoculars in hand to scout for deer as they move through the management units. Located near Vandalia, River Bend Farm is one of the most productive and diverse recreational properties in Illinois.
