Mudhole Duck Club Auctioned for $1.2 Million

ORRICK, Mo – The Mudhole Duck Club sold for $1.2 million Saturday, Aug. 2, in an auction that drew 10 bidders from six states. Albert Burney Auction Company, Gadsden, Ala., managed the sale.

Bidders came from Florida, Michigan, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Alabama for the hour-long bidding contest, in which Todd Tumbleson, of Leawood, Kan., emerged as the winner.

“In a slow real estate market like this one, it’s remarkable to have 10 people lined up to compete for any kind of property, so we’re very happy with the outcome,” said Warren Ward, president of Albert Burney. “With a specialized property like this, it was important to cast a wide net, so having bidders from as far away as Florida and Michigan lets us know we did our job.

“Mr. Tumbleson owns several other hunting properties, and from what I understand, he plans to use this as a private hunting club,” said Ward.

The property yielded a harvest of 927 ducks and 574 Canadian geese in 2007 and was featured by hunting legend Jeff Foiles in his new “Fallin’ Skys V” video.
