Listed on the Land.com Network by California Outdoor Properties’ John Ward on December 28, the 150-acre Marshview Duck Club represents an intriguing opportunity to own an existing hunting facility amidst the largest contiguous estuarine marsh in the United States.
Occupying in an area of primarily shallow water, the marshland acreage traditionally holds large numbers of pintail, teal and widgeon ducks. Not only prime hunting habitat, Suisun Marsh also sits smack-dab along the Pacific Coast flyway for bird species migrating between southern nesting grounds and northern breeding zones. Combined with California’s Central Valley, the San Francisco Bay Area provides important wintering habitat for 60 percent of wintering waterfowl along the flyway.
Hunters access the club’s six blinds by way of boat, while camp facilities include a four-bedroom clubhouse with kitchen and entertaining area, boathouse, bird-picking area and four-stall dog kennel. Marshview Duck Club sits just off I-680 south of Fairfield and within easy driving distance of San Francisco, Oakland and points south.
Rimming Grizzly Bay, 88,000-acre Suisan Marsh is an ecologically significant patchwork of private and public lands that include Grizzly Island Wildlife Area. The 12,900-acre preserve comprises ten individual units, several of which abut the club. Approximately 7,900 acres of the wildlife area are open to public hunting. Duck-hunting season typically runs from late October through January.
A combination of land, bays and sloughs, animals living exclusively in these tidal wetlands include the California clapper rail and Suisun shrew. Rare, threatened and endangered species include the salt marsh harvest mouse, peregrine falcon, California Ridgway’s rail, California black rail, bald eagle, Suisun aster and soft-haired birds beak.
