Waterfowl such as duck and geese have been known to make a stop on the water while traveling. The well- kept pond is loaded with channel cats for great fishing.

The property just to the south has nice crab-apple trees close to the line, so you know deer will come from the interior of this property to feed on those just before dusk.
