When outdoors and hunting are talked about in Central Mississippi the Big Black River usually enters the conversation. It is synonymous with big whitetails, abundant turkey and plenty of waterfowl. Being prone to flood in late winter, the muddy waters flood the forests along its channel spreading that precious river silt throughout, fertilizing the plants and trees along the way. This creates abundant, high quality food sources to grow and attract wildlife. It also pushes those old mature mossy horned bucks, that remain hidden from sight 11 months out of the year, out into the open and onto food plots on higher ground. This is why many outdoorsmen, in our state, look for property to purchase on this river, but opportunities to buy land on the Big Black are few, and turnkey properties are even farther between. This is one of those few opportunities. When you drive through the gate you will notice a cozy, climate controlled, 650 SQFT cabin where you and your family will feel comfortable to relax in privacy. Walking in the door gives you a true nostalgic cabin feel with a large room including the living, kitchen and beds. The bathroom, septic, electrical systems and water are in place, complete with a tankless water heater. The owner is in the process of completing some details on the inside to make the experience even better, and they have installed nice updated colors to give you the comfort of home while at camp. The rolling hills are populated with mixed hardwood regrowth aging around 5 - 6 years, so its thick over much of the property providing copious habitat for deer, turkey, and ... did I mention rabbits? WOW at the wildlife!! The roads and trails are littered with countless tracks right up to the end of the cabin. There are some mature hardwoods and cypress trees along the sloughs, creeks and along the east border that is closest to the river. Five food plots have been established along with shooting houses throughout the property to give plenty of room, and ducks can be hunted along the sloughs and small duck hole in the back. KEEP IN MIND, this is the Big Black River! It can flood some of the property a week or two out of the year, typically, in late December or January, but doesnt flood near the cabin. When this happens, you will want to drag out the waders and duck calls and find some calf deep water. This is one of the most diverse and affordable properties youll find on the Big Black!
