Duck Down Farm
Duck Down Farm is an incredible 82 acres of some of the most fertile ground in northern Oklahoma. Located just off I-35 about 5 miles north of Blackwell, this farm sits right on the banks of the Chickaskia River with 3400 feet of river frontage. Duck Down Farm is an easy commute from each of the 3 closest metro areas. It sits just 100 miles north of Oklahoma City, 60 miles south of Wichita, Kansas and about 115 miles west of Tulsa.
If you’re looking for a special spot to hunt waterfowl, this farm is it. With a location adjacent to the Chickaskia River, it has the potential to flood two draws that could create some of the best duck holes in the state, especially considering all the crops, water and flyways around. There is a great spot for a deep lake where the main draw connects to the river. Alternatively, shallow wetlands could be created in either of the two arms that lead down to the main draw. It all depends on what the next owner wants, you could have a great fishing spot, a great waterfowl hunting spot or you could opt to have both. We used watershed modeling software to estimate that 740 acres of the surrounding countryside drains through this drainage. In addition, given the rainfall, soils and slope of the area, we estimated that this drainage captures 1000 acre-feet of water flow.
Currently boasting a nice plot of soybeans, this farm’s class 1 soils will support just about any crop its new owner could ever want to plant—from food plots for wildlife to grain and hay for the farmers, this piece of ground has you covered. In addition, if you don’t want to plant it yourself, there are plenty of neighbors and local farmers who would pay to cultivate the land. This property has also been known to produce some giant bucks over the years. They love to travel up and down the river from food source to food source in the fall and out here, there is no shortage on either end. Small game animals are also abundant in the wooded draws and lowlands that surround the lush green fields. The wildlife is abundant because the food and water prevail on this farm year after year.
The previous owners remember catching giant channel catfish in the river after swimming and swinging off tree limb ropes in the hot summer days. They also tell stories of hunting quail and pheasants in the winter growing up until they couldn’t feel their toes. If you’re looking for a place to make new memories or maybe you want to bring back some old ones, give Colton Coale a call at 405-615-7645.
