DUCKS! DUCKS! DUCKS! GEESE! DEER! TURKEYS! 35-40 Minutes from the Triangle!
10431 Lake Royale Rd, Spring Hope, NC 27882. This Duck Impoundment and 113+ acre hunting tract for Sale in Nash County NC is right on the Nash-Franklin County line and ideal for hunters looking for the perfect duck hunting property close to the Triangle! The property has been well managed and many updates done since its purchase in 2014. The property was mostly underwater at that time due to years of flooding and beaver damning after the timber company had left. The number of ducks it was holding was simply remarkable! At dusk the skies were totally black with birds coming into the property. The Tar River basin is a great drainage and the owners knew that it was a special and unique opportunity so they enhanced the habitat each year.
The amount of Tar river frontage (over 3700+/- feet) for a property of this size is rare! The fact the river is a natural boundary with swamps on all sides keeps the property extremely protected and private from other hunters and there are two deeded access points as well. The owners knew the potential in the property and wanted to gain some control over the water levels and create a food source. The logging company had put a road across the property that created a natural area for impounding so they spent the first few years building the infrastructure across the property via upgraded piping systems and clearing of “the impoundment” and “slough” portions of the property. These areas are both easily planted with rice (SEE PHOTOS BELOW), millet or other food sources that waterfowl like. There is a large roost on the property and no clearing or anything was done to the roost area to leave it wet year round. The property is nesting a great number of birds this year.
There are 15 wood duck boxes that have been maintained every year and most of which produce multiple nests a year. These birds are patterned in on the property and utilize it every winter. The migratory puddle ducks that use the Tar basin typically show up in late November every year and stay through the winter. The bird activity has remained fantastic!
The sellers built nice permanent blind structures in the impoundment and the slough and did extensive timber management in fall of 2019 that added a great deal of accessibility to the property. They created a large food plot and enhanced the river road which are both planted in food and loaded with deer and turkeys. All points to the property are now very accessible by truck or ATV and was not the case when purchased. There are two feeders on the property as well as dozens of prime deer stands areas.
Triangle Pond Management has managed the property for years and are very interested in continuing on with wildlife management for the new owners. They are arguably one of the top Waterfowl Management companies in the state and know the property inside and out. Triangle Pond planted the crops and food plots every year and helped with all facets of management as needed. They can construct and erect deer stands for the new owners as well.
The cabin on the property has solid bones but needs to be refinished and remodeled with updates and is sold “as is”. It was flooded in Hurricane Matthew and likely should be raised when refurbished.
