Improvements: Thoughtful improvements have been made to the property but not overdone ready for the next owner to complete the ranch to their desires. All new five-strand low fence has been completed around the majority of the ranch, a new entry gate and a unique graveled campsite area with an open-air 12' diameter grilling gazebo and a 30x30 metal equipment barn have recently been completed. The campsite is complete with a fire ring, trash burning station, woodshed, and solar lights surrounding the area. Power immediately adjacent to the campsite but not currently equipped as the current owner wanted an off-grid style setting. The area is ready for a permanent structure to be constructed or simply used as a hang-out spot between hunts.
Trees, grass, forbs: The ranch's fertile soils foster a diverse stand of hardwoods and pine timber. Tree cover consists of approximately 17 acres of plantation pine estimated to be approximately 22 years in age with the remainder of the ranch being a mixture of mature hardwood timber with some sporadic pine. The diversity and maturity of the hardwoods are nothing short of incredible. Native forbs and browse are also plentiful and provide robust habitat for wildlife.
