Combining unparalleled duck hunting with the best in spring creek trout fishing, the 703 acre Billingsley Creek Ranch is arguably the premier sporting property available for purchase anywhere in the country. Set in the fabled Hagerman Valley, epicenter of waterfowl hunting in the western US, the ranch is located just outside of the small town of Hagerman and a half-hour from Twin Falls and its commercial airport. The capital city of Boise is an hour and a half drive west of the ranch, while the resort community of Ketchum/Sun Valley is 90 miles to the north. Spring-fed Billingsley Creek is the centerpiece of the ranch and flows for over a mile through a wildlife-rich basalt canyon and riparian corridor. Working with well-known hydrologist and stream specialist, Gary Decker, the current owners undertook a complete restoration of Billingsley Creek in 2007. The result was the creation of an ideal trout habit to complement the propertys unsurpassed duck hunting. Ample spring water is available to the ranch and used to sustain several year-round lakes, as well as numerous seasonal waterfowl ponds. Although waterfowl hunting and trout fishing are the highlights at Billingsley Creek, there is terrific hunting for pheasants and quail throughout the property as well as for large mule deer up to 30 inches. In addition to its recreational attributes, the ranch features an active farming operation that utilizes approximately 350 acres of irrigated cropland leased to a longtime local farmer to raise grain corn. Improvements complement the ranch and are highlighted by a 5,000 square foot owners home overlooking Billingsley Creek. Other improvements include a two-bedroom guest house, managers residence, guides house, additional employee housing, equipment storage, and a hay barn. Along the creek is an outdoor venue with a fire pit and covered barbeque area ideal for streamside dining and entertaining. The ranch is not covered by a conservation easement at the present time. However, because of the propertys size, location, and extensive frontage on Billingsley Creek, it is a prime candidate for one. The ranch is being offered with furnishings and ranch equipment.
