This privately situated timber and wildlife estate has been nurtured by owners for 25 years. Owner's residence overlooks a magnificent 17 acre Bass lake. Additional surface waters include stocked panfish ponds, creek branches, and a large natural lake (which takes obvious advantage of the nearby Flint River migratory waterfowl flyway). Approx. 20 fields are cultivated throughout the property and comprise perhaps 100 acres. These fields often have precise plantings of seasonal and perennial clovers, Fall soybeans, and Winter cereal grains and other cultivars. Rolling expanses of old growth Longleaf and Loblolly pines are interrupted frequently by the 100's of acres of mature hardwoods. Timber value is substantial. Turkey numbers are high. Whitetail Deer hunting here is superb by any standard. It has been commonplace to harvest mature Bucks in the 140" class (using the Boone and Crockett system of scoring Whitetail Deer). Trail cam pictures document 150" antlered Deer. A buck was harvested in 2011 very near our SW property line that has green scored in the mid 180's as a typical and should make book. A second buck was killed this past season in the Flint River Magnolia Swamp about 8-10 miles down the creek from the subject property. It is thought to score in the 180's as a non typical - all this attesting to the excellence of a superior Whitetail gene pool. A noted wildlife biologist has been asked to advance these Whitetail Bucks to another strata of excellence. Since 2009 exploding statistical achievements indicate doubled deer sightings, doubled quality Bucks seen, and a 60% increase in fawn survival. Regarding fawns, it is impressive to know that most pregnant does have twins with triplets being seen on occasion-living testimony to the wonderfully balanced carrying capacity of this land. Contributing factors include the high protein planted forage, 15 carefully monitored protein feeders, predator control, creation of critical early successional growth in prescribed new forest openings plus understory management in the old growth pine stands. It is expected that increased body weights will result in proportionate antler growth. This is a Whitetail Deer and turkey property that is unlike any other that we know of for sale.
Improvements include but are not limited to lakes and ponds, a well cared for 2700 sq. ft. log lodge and garage, guest house/managers house, fenced horse pastures, barns, hayfield, stable, and miles of all weather roads. Contiguous and unbroken by public road the property nonetheless has miles of public road frontage. The property is located near Reynolds, Ft. Valley, Perry, and Interstate 75. A 5000' paved landing strip is available in Butler plus other airports nearby. Owner will consider divisions.
