NARRATIVE: The seller purchased the +-212 acre Elmodel Tract in 1968, and has managed it oh so well ever since. The result is exceptional aesthetics, habitat, and timber that Baker County Georgia's best hunting preserves are known for. The gently rolling terrain with a pleasing mix of well stocked mature slash pine stands and mature hardwood stands simply creates a property to be proud of. If you are wanting a high quality property in Albany's quail plantation district in +-200 acre range, this is a must see. Each year, about 50% of the pine stands are prescribed burned, which has created superior upland habitat for quail, deer, and turkey. The mature hardwood stands are fully stocked with a perfect mix of clean understory with pockets of brushy understory for wildlife escape and bedding cover. The dominant hardwood species is oak, and all different types of oaks are present including live, water, red, and white oaks. The oak stands are a mix of upland and bottom sites. Along the intermittent creek, which drains through the southern portion of the property and feeds the famed Chickasawhatchee Creek just east of the property, you will find some nice cypress as well. And a great feature is the south neighbor - Elmodel WMA. Elmodel WMA is +-1600 acres of additional hunting, bird dog training area, dove fields, and fishing in famed Chickasawhatchee Creek and Ichawaynochaway Creek. The creeks converge on the southern portion of the WMA. There is a pole barn on the property, and ideal sites to build a cabin or house.
