REDUCED! Have you ever had the opportunity to visit a property where you marveled at how strategically and deliberately the land was managed? A true sportsman’s paradise is now available to you. This is your chance to profit from the knowledge, drive, and hard work of the current landowner. This walk-in ready, Madison County, MS tract consists of 1,117+/- acres of a brilliantly developed wildlife paradise featuring beautiful mature hardwood bottoms along with several ridges laced with old majestic pecans. Various stages of pine plantations are managed and burned on a rotational basis, allowing for wildlife food and cover to thrive. Planted hardwoods along the banks of Loves Creek give the added feel of old river bottom hunting. Several creeks traverse the property along with old fence rows, generating funnels and bottlenecks that create ample hunting opportunities. Several small ponds make great watering holes for the wildlife, and a 4+/- acre stocked lake is managed by Southeastern Pond Management, which allows for year around recreational fun for you and your family. There are 27 food plots ranging in size from ¼ acre to 6 acres. Ten shooting houses and numerous ground blinds are remaining. The property is surrounded by 8 miles of high fence, allowing for the bucks to reach their full potential. Deer, turkey, and small game are all abundant. Sitting on the highest hill, you’ll find the 2,200+/- sf original farmhouse that was remodeled in 2013 to create a modern lodge, while leaving that sought-after vintage charm and southern character. With a six-burner range and granite countertops, the kitchen will not disappoint. Four bedrooms, two baths, and a sunroom overlook the entrance to the woods, so you can enjoy viewing wildlife while sipping your coffee. The large deck nearly spans the length of the house and is perfect for gathering and grilling. The barn is 60 x 40 with metal trusses and cyprus walls and contains an enclosed heated and cooled mud room with individual lockers. It also includes an enclosed tool room and skinning rack. There are two lean-tos for equipment as well as a concrete wash rack. Between the house and the barn you can practice shooting your bow anytime from the bow tower in the back yard. This property is conveniently located only 40 minutes from Madison. Deer data and additional pictures are available per request.
