By Owner, 316 acres of Prime South Alabama Hunting / Timberland on 1.4+/- Miles Perdido River / State Line.
Bay Minette, Baldwin County, Alabama. Not Listed.
Beautiful, secluded, easily accessed and tucked in on the State Line, also known as the Perdido River, for nearly one and a half miles. The Perdido River is narrow here (about 20' wide), deep, swift & clear, and lined with gorgeous, accessible, hardwood bottomlands with a scenic nature trail paralleling the river for nearly a half mile. 25-year-old loblolly pine plantation blanket the slow rolling highlands that gently slope to the hardwood bottoms. The pines are quickly transitioning from Chip-N-Saw to Saw-Timber providing a much higher value in the very near future.
Both, the pines and bottoms are prolific with high-quality wildlife due to age, good genetics, and virtually no hunting pressure over the last dozen years. With beautiful sceneries, an abundance of large rack bucks, beard dragging gobblers, and no hunting pressure or trespassers, the opportunity for wall-hangers and memories of a lifetime are here. Additionally, a few coveys of quail are scattered throughout. This property, with its location, seclusion, layout, and management, support some of South Alabama's, best in quality hunting and will only get better.
Private and peaceful. The adjacent land to the north is mostly a cow pasture with a hardwood swamp. To the west are a few scattered homes, and the Florida side centers several thousand acres held by one landowner and is leased to a hunting club, pushing wildlife to this diversified sanctuary. Additionally, the nearest road on the Florida side is one and a half miles away.
This quality property is designed to attract, hold and benefit wildlife in many ways for years to come with minimal maintenance and upkeep. Similarly and simultaneously, timber volumes and values will grow & excel.
There's a large, 10-acre 'destination' food/tree plot (in green below) designed to attract and provide wildlife with diversified, nutritious foods such as beans & clover to Dunstan Chestnuts & Sawtooth Oaks. This area can easily be converted to a pasture for horses, cows, etc.
There are two, four-acre 'Old Field Managed' habitats designed to create ecosystems of forbs & warm season grasses providing native foods, bedding, and cover for doe & yearlings, turkey, rabbit and so on. The Bucks will be here during the rut.
Highlighted in red below is a four-acre orchard site for Dunstan Chestnut trees and Sawtooth Oaks - a beautiful drive-through hammock. Deer love chestnuts over anything, period. Sawtooths turn a brilliant yellow in the Fall and drop acorns after the chestnuts have produced. This combination provides a beautiful, quality food source that will start bearing abundant food early and last well into the season.
This tract is in the Phillipsville Community, in North Bay Minette. The area is known for its beauty, southern hospitality, excellent schools, safe & quiet country living and central location.
