Just south of Rockville, Missouri is the Osage River floodplain. For ducks migrating along the western side of the Mississippi Flyway, the Osage basin is a mecca. Over the course of thousands of years, migrating waterfowl have become conditioned to finding abundant food and cover resources here, and today scores of thousands of ducks can be found in the area when conditions are right. So it’s not surprising that by looking at land ownership in the basin you’ll see the names of well-known public areas like Four Rivers and Schell-Osage, and dozens of private duck clubs intensively managed for the fall flights. And right in the middle of it all is Twin Lakes. Over the eons, the Osage River has shifted its course. And each time the channel moved, a natural slough was created in its wake. These sloughs are still present today and form the foundation of this property. These shallow water lakes are underlain by dense clay soils with tremendous water holding capacity, and grow abundant foods such as smartweed and wild millet. Buttonbush, willow, and mallow grow in abundance on the periphery, offering plenty of cover for hiding a layout boat or a permanent blind. This area has a rich and long-standing waterfowl hunting history, and with all this property has to offer, it’s a sure bet that tradition can continue. But it’s not just ducks and geese that are attracted - there’s plenty here to support a healthy whitetail population as well. Because the terrain has subtle undulations, there are numerous hummocks and high spots within the pools where deer can bed without disturbance. On the north end - the higher ground - you’ll find plenty of pin oaks and bur oaks to rain acorns and support a treestand. And with the arrangement of water features, it’s not hard to find well-used trails and funnels on which to set up and wait for a wall hanger to cruise by. Property is in the Truman Lake Flowage Easement (flood zone), so no buildings are permitted.
