It is ¾ of a mile from the closed zone portion of Gray Lodge Wildlife Refuge.

Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a 100% interest in a Butte Sink rice farm/duck club. The soils and water on this farm suggest it can grow rice, corn, millet, and just about any other crop you can think of. It is also in an area that would be an ideal candidate to be enrolled in a wetland easement. Income producing, high quality duck clubs do not come on the market very often. Please call for a private showing.
