Here's a rare opportunity to own approximately 880 +-acres overlooking the Grande Ronde River known as the Duckworth Parcel. This property is guarded by locked gates yet still offers access to the Grand Ronde River through adjoining public land. The beauty this property offers coupled with the recreational opportunities makes it one of those true gems that most dream of owning. Property in this location rarely makes it to the open market.The Duckworth lies within the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon in an area locally known as Promise. Promise was once a thriving logging town that is now just a dot on the map. This property is very remote and is only accessible from county maintained gravel roads from approximately May through late November on most years. Private timberlands managed mostly by Hancock Forest Management and Green Diamond Resources Company make up most of the land ownership in the area making the odds of future development rare. Wallowa, OR is located approximately 25 miles away and the town of Troy, OR is approximately 27 miles. The peace and solitude this property offers is rare and a great place to get away from it all.The hunting opportunities are abundant with the ideal location of the Duckworth and the bordering public lands. The skull of a 6x8 bull elk was found on the property in the fall of 2021. One of the most exciting opportunities for the future owner is that this property lies within the Sled Springs Hunting Unit #57 allowing access to landowner preference (LOP) tags for two rifle bull elk seasons, one archery bull elk season, and multiple buck deer seasons as well (buyer to confirm with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife). The property is primarily composed of various timber species including douglas fir, ponderosa pine, western larch, and more. The Elbow Creek fire recently burned through a portion of the property which has been undergoing salvage logging ever since. The burned area may offer great opportunities for enhancing wildlife habitat for improved hunting opportunities.The Duckworth Parcel is a great opportunity to own one of the nicest properties in the area. To find a deeded piece bordering public lands, behind locked gates, and with access to the Grande Ronde River via foot or horseback is a rare find.
