Temple Bend is a 278.017 acre recreational hunting property located in the bend of the Old River just north of the Cane River tie-in on Hwy. 1 in Montrose, LA - Natchitoches Parish. This property has over 2400' of Hwy. 1 frontage and is located 13 miles south of Natchitoches and 32 miles north of Alexandria, LA.
This acreage was enrolled into a Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) on March 4, 2004 under a 30 year term. Therefore, after March 4, 2034 this program will lapse its primary term and the current landowner can do with it as he/she pleases. Located within the boundaries is a 1 acre camp area that was not included in the program, so a buyer can build a camp in this area. Both the 30 yr. term and the camp area make this acreage a pretty rare find as compared to most WRP properties. A 24 acre shallow water area was developed to attract and hold area waterfowl, as depicted in the pictures, and for spring and summer fishing a 4 acre barrow pit is located just off the highway and a short drive from the campsite. This water body would make for a perfect pond to stock and enjoy with family. The remainder of the program acreage was planted in a mixture of bottomland hardwood species comprised of Overcup, Nuttal, and Willow Oak, Green Ash, Tupela Gum and Baldcypress. The cover and tree deversity of this area is perfect to sustain a healthy deer herd. The entire eastern boundary fronts the Old River which spans over 1.5 miles, another great area to fish and enjoy. And lastly, there is a 1 mile long pipeline right-of-way that intersects the property, perfect for deer stand locations.
The Temple Bend property is a perfectly sized family hunting property and is located conveniently just off I-49 and a short drive from anywhere in the state. I do not expect this acreage to last long, so please give me a call today! Realtree Land Pro- David M. Hooper 318.453.9101
