There aren’t many tracts of this size that offer so much to a prospective owner. This is a beautiful piece of land located west of Louisville. Excellent deer, turkey and duck hunting, timber value, good roads, large, established food plots, and a 10-acre lake highlight this property. This tract has been well cared for and it shows from one end to the other.

There are 15 acres of well stocked pine saw timber that can be thinned or clearcut; 27 acres of pre-merch pine that will be ready for a first thinning in a few short years; and 28 acres of mature hardwood with good species composition for wildlife. The lake was built by capturing the spring that forms the headwaters of Big Creek. The north end of the lake is flooded timber that routinely attracts waterfowl by the hundreds – primarily wood ducks and teal. Bass and bream were stocked after construction of the lake and are now plentiful.

The food plots are large and well dispersed over the area in such a manner that easily affords an afternoon sit for up to 4 hunters – this tract lays out much larger than its actual footprint in terms of spacious hunting ground. Deer and turkey are abundant in this area and on this tract. An avid hunter can easily fill a freezer each year with venison, turkey, and duck.

This tract is accessed via paved road and has approximately 2,750 feet of paved road frontage along County Road 9 (Clio Short Road). This tract is only a 25-minute drive to Troy and approximately an hour’s drive from Montgomery, Auburn, and Dothan. Lake Eufaula is a 30-minute drive to the east, but, with a 10-acre lake to fish, one might just be inclined to stay put and enjoy the great fishing on site.

This is great opportunity to own a very special Barbour County tract. This property really does have it all. There’s nothing much to do on this property but enjoy it. If recent sales in this area are any indication, this tract won’t be available long. Two similar tracts offered recently were under contract in 7 and 5 days respectively. Property is shown by appointment only. To schedule a showing, contact Bill Gray with Tutt Land Company at 334-714-0009.
