Description: The McCauley Tract is a five-star recreational property, that was crafted with the hunter and fisherman in mind. There are miles of trails that lead throughout the tract and to several food plots and many nice shooting houses. The tract is teeming with deer and turkey. The Cahaba River is just over a mile to the east as a crow flies. A fellow hunting on this property from Marion killed a buck he claimed went over 180” years ago. The highlights of this tract is an enclosed concrete floor barn with water and electricity. The pond is nine years old and has been intensively managed for trophy game fish. This lake was stocked with hybrid bass and bluegill. The lake is 5-6 acres. In this region, we experienced one of the worst droughts that lasted over 2 months; however, I was able to take pictures towards the end of this drought and the pond was full. The pond still had a small amount of water running though the overflow pipe.
The lake also draw hundreds of ducks to the flooded timber during the winter. The property has access off both Gene McCauley Road and Mars Hill Road. There is a deeded easement from Gene McCauley Road (west side) leading into the shop. Included in the sale is a nice newer 40’x40' shop. This shop has 4 nice roll up doors and a covered area that is all concreted for entertaining. Next to the shop is about 1 acre of fenced pasture that would great for a couple of horses or cows. The property is serviced with electricity and county water. There are several live streams and springs on the property. The timber varies from 9-11-year-old natural regeneration to some nice 20-year-old pines and areas of large mature hardwoods. There is a good mix of everything on this property. It is located about 3 miles east of Marion and is approximately 1 hour to Tuscaloosa or Birmingham. This is a solid recreational tract that you will want to see to appreciate.
Recreation: Great hunting and fishing opportunities. The ponds were professionally stocked and managed by Southeastern Pond Management. This tract is set up to enjoy great deer and duck hunting. There is a network of roads within the property that allows access and provides hours of ATV off road enjoyment.
