The Dalton Bottoms are without a doubt one of the most notable waterfowl areas in the Midwest. Thousands of acres of highly fertile farm ground and extensively managed moist soil habitat is bordered by the Missouri and Charlton Rivers. The crown jewel of the area is The Dalton Cutoff Lake which is neighbored by one of the most historic duck farms in the Golden Triangle, the Niska Duck Club.
Niska, which means “goose” in the Cree language, is the result of a strategic vision and 40-year development of the late Glenn Chambers. Chambers devoted his life to conservation and spent his career with the Missouri Department of Conservation and Ducks Unlimited as an award-winning wildlife photographer.
This WRP tract is comprised of the 30-acre main pool with a comfortable, classic 24 ft. concrete pit blind with electric heat, rustic luxury finish, cooking area and bilge pump. In addition, a smaller willow blind was built to take advantage of a variety of early season hunting situations. Also, on the property is a deep water well, pump house, and a 3-phase motor with variable frequency drive to control volume. The well is piped out to the front of the pit blind, where a manifold with six legs keeps a nice open hole, even in the coldest of conditions.
Chambers also had a passion for prairie restoration. The farm includes restored wet prairie habitat on the ridges and higher ground consisting of mostly Little Bluestem with some Big Bluestem and Prairie Cordgrass. The diversity of this tract provides excellent habitat for deer and upland birds as well.
A true all-around property, there was one acre left out of the WRP easement for a potential building site. Niska offers stellar hunting opportunities from September through March. While known for extraordinary duck hunting, this farm offers world-class dove opportunity including a sunflower field that is 35 years in existence. The action in September during teal season is just as fast-paced, and blue wingers inhabit the farm in large numbers and provides a perfect precursor to November mallards. Canada and snow goose traffic along the river provide some incredible opportunities to extend your season.
Niska is a turn-key farm in every sense of the word. The foundation of Niska was developed by three generations of the Chambers family and offers prospective buyers the chance to build upon the legacy of this incredible property.
