  • Features


This may well be the finest waterfowl spot in Nebraska for the size and money.  The property includes 1/2 mile of the North Platte River, located in the heart of the Central Flyway. The property has a spring-fed pond that freezes over only one or two days out of the year, and even then it is very thin and easily broken up. The pond stays open all winter, and flows into the North Platte.

The Owner harvests 90% of the ducks and geese on the property by decoying birds onto the pond. The birds typically finish their approach at 10-20 yards from the underground pit. There are two underground pits that will be conveyed with the property.

This prime waterfowl spot is located on the south side of the North Platte River directly across from a large sand and gravel operation which has several ponds that typically hold a tremendous amount of waterfowl. The City of Mitchell’s sanitation ponds are located within a few hundred yards, and are also a traditional overnighting location for ducks and geese.

The property is located near Spotted Tail Creek, there have been trout caught up to 18 inches on the property between November and March.

NOTE: The Seller will require appropriate cooperation from the Buyer, as this property will be subject to a 1031 transaction. There is an easement across the neighbor.  This property must be shown with an agent.  Trespassing will be enforced with authorities.
