Popular Brinkley Hunting Ground for Sale as Duck Season Under Way

DECEMBER 5, 2006 - Posted at 7:45 a.m. CST

 

BRINKLEY, Ark. (AP) - As far as seasons go, now is the time for Mallard Pointe Lodge and Reserve to get some business. Just west of Brinkley, the 2,800-acre hunting reserve has heated blinds for those aiming for ducks and waterfowl in the winter.

But the lodge and its lands will be sold off at a December 19 auction. Those selling the reserve between Cache and White rivers and others in the business of hunting say the sale doesn't mean the season will be a poor one.

Bill Thompson, one of the owners of Mallard Pointe, said personal reasons fueled the sale. The National Auction Group is handling the sale. William Bone, president of the auction company, says the sale will be a ``true auction.'' There will be no reserve or minimum pricing for the land.

The sale will divide the property running along the Dagmar Wildlife Management Area into two lots. One lot includes the Mallard Pointe lodge and the Twelve Pointe Buck lodge, as well as three guest houses. The other has the Razorback Lodge, a dog kennel and a bird fly pen.
