For generations, this area has been well known to waterfowl hunters. Waterfowl, guided by geographical landmarks have come to this area to feed in these vast bottoms surrounded by the Missouri River. The farm is situated in the lowest part of the bottoms and for decades hunters have come to this farm to hunt migrating waterfowl. In 2002, the farm was enhanced with water control structures and a levee system. Later in 2006, the farm underwent extensive modifications for a single purpose; to produce the best duck and goose hunting anywhere. Starting in 2008, additional land was purchased and a new well drilled. A system of pipes connected with three deep electric submersible wells allow for controlled flooding of nearly 400 acres of the farm. The main hunting pool is kept open with 54 degree water so that no matter how cold the temperature outside, there is ALWAYS open water. Large heated custom designed steel pit blinds were installed on the property to provide the utmost in concealment and comfort. In addition to the pit blinds, several other custom blinds are situated in strategic places around the farm.
