Land Description

Ultimate 45.27-Acre hunting and fishing paradise along the Payette River on the outskirts of Emmett, Idaho. This rare legacy property offers a variety of recreational opportunities and breathtaking unspoiled natural beauty. Wildlife & Hunting The retreat is a prime location for hunters and fishermen attracting a variety of wildlife. For waterfowl hunters there are mallards, wood ducks, and geese, for upland bird hunters quail, pheasant, and turkey, and for big game hunters there are even mule deer. All these hunting options on one property. The property is in hunting unit 38 which allows non-rifle multi-sex tags for deer. There is also a two-person tree stand hunting blind constructed on the edge of one of the fields which serves as the perfect location to spot this wildlife. Avid fishermen will enjoy catching largemouth bass and bluegill from the retreat's multiple ponds or along the riverbank. Natural Water Features One of the main highlights of the property is its abundance of water. There is approximately 1/2 mile of river frontage and 4 bass and duck ponds. Water Rights 3 separate Idwr water rights exist, some of which are year-round water rights for the ponds. The oldest right dates to 1875. The water is conveyed via gravity flow ditch, allowing for flood irrigation without a pump, and each of the 3 rights also has a second point of diversion, allowing the owner to pump directly out of the river at the property. The current owner uses the water shares to irrigate the fields during the summer and hunting season and supply fresh water to the ponds year round. Land Even though it is close to town, this haven feels very secluded. Idaho Fish and Game land lies to the Northwest of the property across the river and City of Emmett land lies to the East. For additional solitude, in the middle of the property is an island surrounded by the Payette River. The acreage also consists of cornfields and pasture ground irrigated by ditches. Except for the river frontage the entire perimeter is fenced with wire fencing and it is gated at the entrance for privacy. There are also an apple tree and multiple wild blackberries bushes dispersed throughout the property.Utilities, Improvements, & Zoning Power is already installed to the property. The access road to the gate is paved and there are dirt roads winding throughout the property. Currently, the land is zoned for recreational or industrial use, however, should someone wish to build there is potential to build a home contingent on approval from Gem County. About the Area The rural town of Emmett, Idaho is located a mere 5 minutes from the property, so you are close to shopping and services. Emmett, Idaho is a thriving community that serves as the county seat of Gem County. The region is known as The Valley of Plenty due to its bountiful agriculture industry and rich soils. Gem County produces a variety of tasty fruits from its abundant fruit orchards. These include cherries, apricots, apples, blueberries, and strawberries. In fact, the town even celebrates this during its Emmett Cherry Festival held every summer and the Harvest Festival held every fall. Many of the local orchards even allow the public to come and pick their own produce. Other notable agricultural roles in the Emmett Valley include dairy farming and livestock farming. Besides the agricultural advantages, Emmett residents also enjoy its close proximity to recreation, particularly hunting and fishing. Popular fishing holes include the Sagehen Reservoir and Black Canyon Dam. Area hunters appreciate the exceptional game bird hunting and big game hunting available at their fingertips. Other local natural attractions include the Payette River which winds through the community and Squaw Butte which many people enjoy hiking or snowshoeing.
