Location & Directions

This 480 acre hunting estate abuts a vast tract of Crown Land - in excess of 1 million acres - which extends all the way to James Bay. At your doorstep there are literally thousands of lakes and rivers of all sizes - all teeming with many species of fish - in a pristeen unspoiled wilderness full of bear, moose, duck, and many other wild animals.

From Matheson, proceed westerly along Highway 101 to Shillington. Turn left (south) on Shillington Rd. and continue about 8 km to a logging road which defines the north limit of Concession 1, Bond Township. Turn right (west) and continue 1/2 mile to the eastern limit of the property.

This property is shaped like a square with the southwest quarter removed. The northern and eastern dimensions are each 1 mile, and the southern and western dimensions, as well as the dimensions of the removed quarter, are each 1/2 mile.

The access road is 8 km south on Grindstone Rd. (gravel road) at Shillington to a winter access road . From here ATV access for 1.2 km west to property boundary with a crossing required on Little Driftwood River at 700 meters. Is also accessible in winter by skidoo.

Recreational Potential

As a fully accessible hunting or fishing retreat, this location is perfect. While it is only 25 kilometres away from the town of Matheson, and access is year-round, it is a solitary piece of Canadian Shield wilderness surrounded by 1,OOO,OOO ACRES OF Crown Land Hunting for moose, black bear, and duck. The nearby Driftwood River gives excellent opportunities for fishing and canoeing. Moose Lake is only 2 kilometres north, accessible via Crown Land. Moose Lake is an excellent spot for walleye, sauger and pike fishing and is also located along a duck flyway, making it a prime duck hunting location. In the winter the area is well serviced by snowmobile trails, and cross-country skiing locations are abundant.

Timber rights are included with this property. Mineral rights are not included. Part of the timber was harvested about 12 years ago with the remainder harvested about 5 years ago.

Terrain & Vegetation

This property is rolling and predominantly high. There are about 15 acres of marsh at the southeast corner of the property and another 5 acres at the northeast corner, and another small wetland in the northwest. At the southwest part of the lot 3 section of the property is another wetland about 60 acres in size. The area around the Driftwood River a mile to the west is also marshy. The surrounding country tends to be flat as well, with scattered wetlands. The forest and wetland areas are habitats to many wild species such as deer, moose, black bear, beaver, and duck. This is a likely area for the local moose population to yard up during the late fall and winter months.
