PRICE REDUCED!! To have an opportunity to own property near some of the most recognized and highly acclaimed waterfowl areas Illinois has to offer is a rare find these days! Located near the Big Bend area of the Illinois River are some of Illinois’ most highly acclaimed duck clubs, some dating back over a 130 years. Clubs such as Swan Lake Gun Club and Senachwine Gun Club are the two oldest clubs in Illinois, both located in this area only a couple of miles north of this property. In addition to the prestigious duck clubs in the area is Dixon Waterfowl Refuge at Hennepin Hopper Lakes, located only 4 miles north of this property. This property has countless opportunities for deer and waterfowl hunting. A blind could be built for waterfowl hunting on the 10 acres of water that is owned on the northeast side of Sawmill Lake. As many clubs have done, you have the potential to build external and internal levees around the property and install water control structures to regulate water levels throughout the year. A key feature of this property and some of the neighboring clubs is the presence of natural spring water. Duck ponds could be filled from the natural spring water or water could be pumped from Sawmill Lake. With the natural occurrence of spring water, a large area on the north end of Sawmill Lake has open water year round, helping to hold waterfowl late into the season. The property also offers excellent deer hunting opportunities. A little over a third of the property is timber. Many of the surrounding properties consistently harvest mature whitetails year in and year out. This is a one of a kind property that has countless recreations opportunities for any outdoor enthusiast. Don’t miss your opportunity.
