505 Acres Hunting Wetlands "The Crossing" De Witt MO Chariton And Carroll Counties - Over 1.5 miles of Grand River Frontage


Wow! Hunters your search is over, designated by the Missouri Wetland Team as the largest naturally occurring private oxbow wetland in the state, and visited by government officials from as far away as Canada, this perfectly designed wetland is a “must have” for an individual or group with means, and a desire to possess a property that can only be described as “the very best available today”.

A tremendous amount of money has been put into the improvements of the Crossing. When you combine over 1.5 miles of Grand River frontage and the ability to flood 500 continuous acres, a colossal water control structure was required. This massive water control is a concrete structure that is 30' deep with a 34' x 100' steel pipe for an outlet. The large 4' circular steel gate control was designed to release water from a range of 1" to 34" regardless of weather conditions. The cost of this structure alone was over $60,000 and it is the only structure of this magnitude on WRP wetlands in Missouri.

The Wetland Restoration Plan also called for restoring the 120+/- acre oxbow that was formed when the channel of the Grand River changed in the flood of 1973. The second oxbow just above the large oxbow was surrounded by mature timber. With over $1,600,000 excluding purchase price, already spent on the restoration of this wetland the Wetland Team did not attempt to restore the smaller oxbow.

Over the past 10 years the owner has spent an additional $1,426,000 to make additions such as an 80' well and pump designed to fill 5 water cells at the same time at a rate of 18,000 to 24,000 gallons per hour, roads throughout the entire property for easy access and maintenance of the 500 acre wildlife refuge. A channel was cut from the Grand River to flood the timber area on the south and west side and constructed additional mud bars to accommodate a larger number of ducks to roost.

Surrounded on three sides by the Grand River with over 1.5 miles of Grand River Frontage this property is located midway between the Central Flyway and the Mississippi Flyway, as well as midway for the annual waterfowl migration. This central location for the annual migration is the nesting, resting, and feeding area for the annual migration of waterfowl and other wildlife and certainly the most important stop on their journey.

There are seven wildlife refuges in the area that are managed by the National Wildlife Refuge System and the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). Three of the seven are intensively managed and known as the top waterfowl hot spots in Missouri and are host to the largest waterfowl numbers in the state during the fall migration. These are Fountain Grove Wildlife Area, Grand Pass Wildlife Area and Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge. The Crossing is in direct line of the migrating birds as they move between these 3 refuges.

The neighborhood around The Crossing is comprised of over 23,000 acres of prime farmland, which is protected by the Garden of Eden Levee District. The farms are long-time family-owned and seldom offered on the open market. The harvested fields have long been the feeding grounds for the annual migration of waterfowl. This further enhances the location of The Crossing for waterfowl as well as whitetail deer.

The deer hunting on this property is second to none. The strategically located tower blinds and food plots have enabled hunters to take a number of record quality deer from the Crossing in recent years. The most recent record deer scoring over 197 inches.

The seller can be proud that his legacy will include the restoration of the Top Wetland in Missouri for all future generations to enjoy. It takes a special individual, group, or groups, like the Nature Conservancy & Ducks Unlimited to maintain unique properties like The Crossing. The seller has decided to offer this property at auction and give you an opportunity own one of our Nation’s premier hunting properties.
