599 acres +/- of Hunting Land in Alabama's Black Belt
599 acres +/- of good hunting land for sale in the Black Belt of Alabama.This property is located between Marion and Selma in Perry County, Alabama. This property has been in the same family for almost 100 years, and has not been on the market for generations. The timber on the property is a mixture of pine plantation, some hardwood drains, and some cedar land on the south end. Much of the merchantable timber is pine plantation of varying ages, almost all of which has had a first thinning. There is a large gas line that runs through the property. There are several access points from the road onto the property, and a good internal road and trail system runs throughout. There are numerous food plots and hunting stand locations. The property offers a good bit of habitat diversity with some areas of thick cedar cover, thinned loblolly pine plantation, and the hardwoods along the creek drains. The land is very near to some large row crop farmers, which is what made this part of Alabama's Black Belt famous for growing trophy whitetail deer. The same owners also have an additional 410 acres +/- on the east side of the road that is available as well. That land has over 6000' of frontage on the Cahaba River. The land is offered as 410 acres +/-, 599 acres +/-, or in its entirety at 1009 acres +/-.
An old camp house is on the property, that has been used by the hunting club. Electricity and a water well service the camp house. This land is a large block, in an area where many of the surrounding owners have very large land holdings. Being surrounded by large neighbors makes managing your deer herd much easier. This area is loaded with deer and turkeys, and some areas of the planted pines would make a fantastic quail course with a controlled burn. The land has been leased to the same hunting club for around 20 years is my understanding.
CRP Income-Approximately 266 acres are currently in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), which generates approximately $10,000 per year.
