Looking for an outstanding hunting tract with plenty of water, easy access, and many options to build a country home or hunting camp?  Painters Creek Tract is 217 wooded acres with several creeks in Dale County, AL near the small town of Ozark.  In a great location and surrounded by large timber tracts and a military reservation, it has that “remote and secluded” feel.  This tract is absolutely loaded with deer, turkey, and other south Alabama wildlife.  This property has over 4,000 feet of frontage on County Road 238 and shares a long southern boundary with Fort Rucker, the US Army’s Aviation Training Base.  It has miles of internal trails, food plots in all the right locations, and room for plenty more.  You can start hunting immediately!  Fully wooded but with no buildings or other improvements, this is a blank slate ready for you to develop into something really special.  Painters Creek Tract is part of a legacy property that has been in the same family for 150 years and is being offered for sale for the very first time. 

The topography is level to gently rolling and the soil is sandy loam with clay, common for this area.  There is no shortage of fresh, cool water.  Painters Creek is a large, year-round, sandy-bottomed creek that flows through the property before emptying into Claybank Creek.  Claybank creek is another large, year-round creek that flows across the SE corner of the tract for a little over 600 feet.  There are several other smaller creeks, some seasonal, that ensure water is not far away wherever you are on the tract.  The creeks and the topography provide numerous options for building ponds.  The woods are primarily a mix of hardwoods and pines of varying ages with some small areas of pine plantation. 

The Painters Creek tract provides many options for the new owners.  There is plenty of nice, level ground on which to build your country home or hunting camp.  Power is less than 100 yards away on CR 238.  If you want to raise some livestock or grow some crops, you could clear some timber and convert part of the tract to pasture or farmland.  Or you could leave it as-is and just start enjoying some outstanding hunting in south Alabama while you watch your timber grow.  This tract is conveniently located near Fort Rucker, Enterprise, Ozark and Troy and is less than 100 miles from the Florida gulf coast beaches.  

Offered at $1,838 per acre, this is a great buy – come take a look!
