Details

Welcome to Ash Island! This unique hunting opportunity includes exclusive use of 135 acres of privately owned farmland in the middle of the Willamette River. This is a waterfowl and deer hunt lease combo, and only available as a combo for 2020!

Waterfowl:
With a newly planted 4 acre plot of Sudan/ sorghum grass on the edge and low spot of the tall fescue grass field, which holds water all through the winter as the river levels rise, this boasts one of the best waterfowl opportunities in the area. This property is in the direct flyway for all migratory birds. During the winter months, the north end of the island does flood, holding water in all the low spots, making it a haven for both ducks and geese alike. The island will hold standing water until the spring time when the Willamette River levels start to drop, and the river does not connect into the water on the island, so no boat traffic can find their way in.

Deer:
The property also has a lot of deer traffic. Not only a healthy population living on the island, but many bucks will cruise the island during the rut.

This hunt lease provides opportunity to hunt all of the waterfowl and deer seasons that are available during 2020. This does not include a hunting license and hunting tag, and must be purchased separately.
