345 acres +/- in Franklin County, MS
345 acres +/- of hunting and timberland for sale in Franklin County, MS. This is a pretty hunting tract, in an area that is popular for good deer hunting. The property adjoins the Homochitto National Forest, not far from Delta Lake. Wells Creek is a large, sandy creek that makes up the southern boundary of the property. Garden City Road is the access, and dead ends at the property, giving you lots of privacy on this tract. There are several places where water backs up, and you will get some ducks in the winter.
There are numerous food plots throughout that provide good hunting opportunities. Power is available to the property, and a large electric transmission line runs through the tract offering more open area for hunting. A barn sits at the north end of the tract, and provides a place to store equipment. Much of the tract is mature bottomland hardwoods, but the northwest corner of the tract has pine plantation that will need a thinning in the next few years. The property has been leased to the same hunters for many years, and they have done a good job planting and maintaining the food plots and internal trails. Much of the property gets wet in the winter, due to the creeks and drains through the property. The northwest corner would make the best home or cabin site because it is out of the FEMA floodplain. The property has been in the same family for several generations, and they have a long history of hunting and recreation on the place. Mineral Rights do not convey in the sale. All shooting houses and stands on the property belong to the hunters leasing the land, and are not included with the sale.
