The Hixon Tract is 285 acres (+-) located in southern Bullock County on County Road 8 near Perote, AL.  This nice hunting/timber tract is about 15 miles south of Union Springs, 25 miles NE of Troy and within 65 miles of the Auburn/Opelika area.  This area of the county is good for both hunting and growing timber.  The soil here is a sandy clay mix making it a good wet weather logging tract when it's time to harvest the timber. There is also a plentiful supply of wildlife in the area including deer, turkey, wild hogs, doves and ducks.  While walking the tract, I saw plenty of deer sign including trails, tracks and old rubs.  There are two age classes of planted pine timber on the tract...roughly 140 acres of 7 year old pine and 20 acres of once thinned, 20+ year old pine.  The younger stand of pine is growing fast and looks really good.  The thick understory in this younger stand creates great cover and browse for the deer and good nesting for the turkeys.  The older stand could be thinned right now and would really stand out with an understory burn next spring.  A new entrance with a culvert pipe and access road have recently been constructed to give the tract better access.  There are existing internal roads and trails that provide other access to most parts of the tract.  Bogue Chitta Creek, a large sandy bottom creek, flows through the northern part of the tract and there is some really nice, mature hardwood in this creek bottom.  This area provides a great water source and also a good food source in the fall/winter for the wildlife.  There are two existing food plots in place but there are other areas that could be converted into more if desired.  One notable area is the large power line that traverses the tract which creates immediate open land for planting additional food plots. 

The Hixon Tract is a good fit for the buyer looking to hunt, grow a little timber and enjoy the outdoors!  Give me a call to take a look at it!
