Located in the Central Flyway this property provides important winter habitat for waterfowl that are produced in the U.S. and Canadian prairies. Former rice fields, prairie wetlands and associated coastal marshes make up the bulk of this property. The remaining acreage is bottom-land timber and looks very good for both deer and hog hunting. Owner reports the land has a fair number of alligators as well. Just an awesome property for waterfowl. Add in the opportunity to dove hunt, plus deer and hogs and this property offer the South East Texas Sportsman the best state has to offer.
