If you were to ask for a large, private-ownership property to purchase with frontage along the Mississippi River, you would likely hear a response of “patience will be key, this may take a while”. Number one, not much of it exists anymore. There are plenty equity shares along the Mississippi River Bottom, but not much private ownership remains. Secondly, it rarely comes up for sale. Today may be your family’s lucky day. Welcome to Montezuma Bend Plantation! Located in one of the most sought after whitetail hunting areas in the United States, Montezuma lies just south of the Helena Bridge in Coahoma County, MS. The plantation is accessed by Thompson Road (paved) off Highway 1. Before crossing the levee, you will notice a 4,200± square foot specialized quail raising facility situated on approximately 4.13± surveyed acres. This area would be great for constructing flood protected improvements in the event Old Man River doesn't cooperate. Paradise Point Road (gravel) will then lead over the levee. The second you come off the levee, the gated, vast paradise begins…big timber, a gravel drive, and endless recreational opportunities. As you meander through the plantation, you wonder how does someone let this go? You can easily imagine the whole family, not just immediate, enjoying a place like this for years and years to come. The plantation is broken up by cultivatable fields, large blocks of timber, tree lines, sloughs, and natural lakes. The elevated cabin overlooks one of the seven lakes. The two bedroom cabin is rustic but will get the job done when you need to stay overnight. If this cabin doesn’t suit your needs, additional building sites are endless. When leaving the cabin area you will quickly realize you can ride as long as you want, four wheelers, side by sides, go karts, you name it. The kids and grandkids can take off and ride for miles. If you talk with Mississippi deer hunters for any length of time, the MS River bottom will quickly become a topic. It has been known to produce high density and some of the biggest whitetails the state has to offer. With the sporadic cultivatable areas (287.7± acres) available to plant nearly 10% of the property annually for the wildlife, the mast producing timber for an additional fall food source, and the CRP acres for bedding, this property is capable of producing and holding giants. Higher ground inside the MS River levee has been known to hold high turkey numbers and Montezuma is no different. Several groups of turkeys were noted on the initial inspection with most of them being long beards. The Mississippi River flyway has been known for great duck hunting for as long as most folks can remember and Montezuma sits right in the heart of it. When you put rice and corn a few hundred yards from the river channel, it’s a disastrous recipe for the ducks. The wintering months should bring wing shooting in the mornings and whitetail chasing in the afternoons. Hogs are a nuisance in most people’s eyes, but they also make good sausage and give you something to do throughout the spring and summer months. Thermal hunting in the open fields and “hogs with dogs” would be a blast. While working up Montezuma in the summer months, you are sure to find some crappie holes, a bream bed, or a good eddy on the MS River to catch a catfish. You shouldn't get bored at Montezuma Bend Plantation. The total acreage makeup is as follows: 2,874.80± acres - 2,293.5± deeded acres, 489.3± acre Levee Board lease, 92± accretion acres (not titled). The deeded land make up includes approximately 1,525 timberland acres, 479.68 acres enrolled in CRP (Conservation Reserve Program) through 2028 paying $72,551 annually, 287.7 cultivatable acres, and 4.13 acres outside the levee. As you ponder controlling nearly 3,000 acres along the mighty Mississippi River, think about development for the ducks, deer, a new cabin, to make it your own so you, your kids, and grandkids can call it theirs for the next 75 years. Places such as Montezuma Bend Plantation do not come up for sale very often. If you have been wanting a unique, large acreage tract on the Mississippi River, Montezuma may be your place.
