The Winter Creek Duck Cabin and Farm is located north and east of Scottsbluff, Nebraska and 2.5 miles West of Lake Minatare in the heart of the Western Nebraska Waterfowl Mecca and very productive farm country.  This property will be sold in 2 tracts - the Duck Cabin & a nice irrigated farm.

The Cabin & Recreational property features Winter Creek, a distinctive spring feed creek that never freezes and runs all year. Duck hunters that are familiar with hunting in Western Nebraska know how great the hunting can be when the snow starts to accumulate and you have a place that has warm spring-fed water flowing for those mallards to dive into. This is the spot you want to be hunting on a cold day!

Along with the spectacular waterfowl hunting the farm has the potential for future development while retaining the agricultural, grazing, and hunting income. The 126± tillable acres of farm ground has a solid production history and is irrigated by 149 acres of water rights from Pathfinder Irrigation District plus a high-capacity irrigation well.
