571 Ac – Pike Co – Shiloh Tract
571 acres in Pike County, Alabama
Listing Status: Active
This is a premier hunting, fishing and timber investment tract in Pike County located just 15 miles from Troy, AL. If you like to hunt deer, turkey and ducks, and fish for trophy bass, you really need to see the Shiloh tract. The 1,800 sq ft log cabin is well-built, warm and accommodating, provides all the comforts of home, and can easily sleep up to 12 people. You’ll enjoy spending time on the spacious porch or in front of the large stone fireplace. Not far from all the conveniences of Troy, the setting provides complete peace and quiet, except for those noisy gobblers in the spring.
The 571 acre tract is host to abundant native wildlife including deer, turkey, ducks, dove and a variety of small game. It has been managed intently to produce the best possible habitat and features well-established food plots, tree stands, a year-round supplemental feeding program, mineral licks, and much more. An eight acre field, located near the west boundary of the property and bordering a hardwood creek bottom, provides an ideal setting for a great dove shoot. It was designed and constructed with pipes and drain to allow for partial flooding. Parts of that field have been intentionally flooded in the past and planted with rice to attract ducks. Two all-weather creeks and the natural springs ensure a constant water level in the lake and plenty of water for the game.
The 25 acre lake is stocked with largemouth bass and coppernose bream, supplemented by a generous supply of threadfin shad. Several feeders around the lake ensure that fish down the food chain are plentiful and provide the capability for producing many bass in the 10 lb(+) class. A two-story boathouse features a covered boat slip, work and equipment area, and plenty of room to play on. The upstairs has a porch and living area with unbelievable views of the lake.
In addition to the recreational value, this tract has approximately 524 acres of timber with an estimated value in excess of $500,000. There are 95 acres of planted loblolly pines, 85 of which are in the CRP and produce annual revenue of $4,253. The 15-year old pines were planted in rows and have been intensely managed with several controlled burns to ensure maximum growth and production. The balance of the timber is 20+ year old mixed hardwoods and pines and features an abundance of white oaks and other mast-bearing trees, predominantly in the creek bottoms.
The Shiloh tract is all the above and more. It has paved road frontage, power, water and septic, and is ready for some new owners who have been looking for a fabulous country retreat that requires no additional preparation. There is only one entry gate leading into the property and the several miles of well-maintained roads ensure easy access to all parts of the tract. Secure, secluded and rich with native Alabama wildlife and habitat, this tract has the potential to produce memories for generations.
