Often times people wish for a turkey heavy property. This 340± acre tract in Yalobusha County, MS will fulfill those wishes! Located east of the town of Oakland, this property is the place for someone interested in a deer and turkey combo, with a great timber stand. The property make-up consists of approximately 160 acres of 35-year-old pine stands, 160 acres of 20-year-old pine stands, several wildlife plots and gorgeous hardwood bottoms. The main goal for the past several years has been to create a “turkey haven”. This has been accomplished by providing adequate habitat and planting chufa grass, clovers, and wheat. The birds are here! Four access points off the low traffic County Road 62 allow multiple points to approach that gobbling longbeard! On initial inspection of the property, the trails were covered with fresh turkey scratching. The terrain is rolling and the timber transitions throughout from the 35-year-old pine stands to the 20-year-old pine stands. Along the bottoms, there are small drainage ditches with beautiful hardwoods. When the fall comes around, there will be no shortage of deer! Deer thrive in the current habitat and love browsing under the white oaks in the bottoms. Multiple food plots are in place and the various access points allow you to slip in no matter the wind direction. This is the type of property that will provide memories for a lifetime and also a great timber investment. Utilities are at the road and a small pole barn is at the entrance to park your equipment. As an added bonus, there are currently 160± acres enrolled in CRP providing an annual payment of $6,000. From turkey, to deer, to timber…this property offers it all.
