To the north, Little Muddy Creek borders the edge of the property along with many species of hardwood trees including oak, which is known to provide excellent habitat for wood duck. It is not uncommon for Roosevelt elk to frequent the area, and in an effort to mitigate crop damage an eight-foot game fence was erected around the property.

This corporation prides itself on stewarding an environment that provides the best possible habitat of many species of waterfowl as they proceed along the Pacific migration corridor. By doing so, this property continues to provide quality duck and goose hunting to its stockholders and guests.
