If you are looking for a prime, walk in ready hunting tract...HERE IT IS!!  The Silos Farm is 487 acres located on Highway 82 about 6 miles west of Union Springs, AL in one of the best areas of Bullock County.  Large landowners surround this tract with multiple quail plantations and other hunting farms nearby.  It is conveniently located within 45 minutes to one hour of Montgomery, Auburn, Opelika and Troy and within 2 to 2 1/2 hours of Birmingham and Atlanta, GA.   The hunting on the farm and in the area is exceptional with an abundant supply of deer, turkey, hogs, quail, doves and duck...you name and it's here!  This property offers the new owner great hunting, fishing, ATV riding and the simple enjoyment of being in the great outdoors.

 Upon entering the property, you will see two old grain silos, thus the name "The Silos Farm."  Many years ago, this land was farmed as much of the land in the area was and these silos would have been used to store corn/soybeans or something similar.  The current landowner saw these silos not as an eyesore but as an opportunity to create something very unique...a camphouse!  Now complete and totally transformed, the silos feature 2 BR and 2 BA, a kitchen and living area, a huge upstairs deck, a massive outdoor brick fireplace and a covered outdoor kitchen with bar area.  The silos are a perfect fit for this property and I will have to say one of the coolest ideas I've seen.  You will not be disappointed with the view from the upstairs deck of a newly constructed pond complete with a covered dock and zipline.  The pond has recently been stocked with bass and bream and offer great fishing fun for the whole family, the kids will love the zipline! 

 The landowner has spent countless hours and funds transforming this property into a top notch recreational and hunting farm.  The main road system and even the secondary trail system on the tract is second to none that I've seen. The main roads have been completely reconstructed and cleared with culverts installed, crowned to shed water and topped with gravel.  The goal was to be able to travel these roads during the wet, winter season and I believe that goal has been accomplished.  Hundreds of hours have been spent mulching many areas of the property to create secondary ATV trails and to open up timber stands that are conducive to the wildlife.  The area around the pond is manicured like a park, a great place to walk and for the kids to play.  I had the opportunity to view this farm before any work was done to it and can say it now truly looks like a different place!  There are multiple existing food plots on the tract that vary in size from 1/4 acre up to about 2 acres or larger.  Most all of the food plots have nice shooting houses in place...there are two new Redneck blinds with custom built stairs and one new MB Ranch King blind, one of the nicest shooting houses built today.  Bowlin Creek flows through the tract and there is a swamp here where the owner has killed wood ducks on numerous occasions.  Prior to buying this tract, the owner leased it for several years and harvested several nice deer and some turkeys.  All the essential elements for a complete hunting tract are here...food source provided by food plots and mast bearing hardwood, water provided creeks/ponds and great bedding provided by thick understory.

There are many different timber stand types on The Silos Farm including mature planted and natural pine, younger natural hardwood/pine regeneration and large bottoms with big hardwood.  A large portion of the mature pine timber on the tract has been thinned to resemble a quail plantation and would be ideal for releasing birds for a morning hunt.  The understory has been mulched in these areas and this winter there should be a good stand of sage grass growing under the pines.  There is merchantable pine and hardwood timber that is ready to harvest right now should you want an immediate return on your investment. 

The Silos Farm is the total package and should be given serious consideration if you are looking for a turnkey recreational tract that offers great hunting and family enjoyment.  Take a look at all the pictures and maps...give me a call if you have any questions or would like to schedule a tour of this awesome farm!!
