Lodge- The lodge is what you would expect for hosting guests at a trophy hunting destination. There are 3 suites on the north end of the lodge, that each have their own entrance from the exterior of the building. The suites all have bedrooms and a private bathroom. These rooms would make very nice accommodations for friends and family or for paying customers.

There is a nice kitchen for showing off some fine cooking and displaying the Southern hospitality that makes Alabama famous. The appliances are stainless, and the counter tops are granite. There is also a dining room for breaking bread and sharing the memories made on the day's hunt. To the south of the dining room are two bunkrooms that could be used for more guests or to house the hunting guides. A full bathroom is shared by the two bunkrooms. On the far south end of the lodge is a full apartment that is currently used by the farm manager. It has a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and full bathroom. The sunset view from the porch of the lodge is spectacular.
Horse Barn and paddocks- If you are a horse-lover, you will love La Potencia. There is a wooden horse barn with two stalls and tack room and a storage room. The floors to the horse barn are padded. There are several roomy paddocks with beautiful wooden fences. In the paddock with the horse barn is also a shelter that offers shade and has a water spigot to provide fresh water.
Shops and Equipment Storage- The main storage building offers much more than room to house your toys. A large deer processing room allows you to attend to your game on site. The processing room has a concrete floor, electric winch system from the ceiling, and slides to accommodate several deer. There is a stainless sink, large dehydrator, several freezers for storage, and a good floor drain system. The main building is also a workshop/office that is used for maintaining the records related to the deer breeding facility and for storing tools and hardware. The main shop also has 7 open bays for equipment and UTV storage. 3 of the bays have a concrete floor. A loft area in the main shop allows for extra storage upstairs. The farm manager has added several chicken coops on the north end of the main shop. There are 3 fuel storage tanks at the main storage building for diesel and gasoline. A local fuel company delivers propane and fuel to the farm on a routine basis. The second barn, which is opposite the main storage building consists of 5 bays and has a gravel floor.
Deer Breeding Facility- There are 6 pens, each approximately 1 acre in size, for breeding and sorting deer. There is shade cloth around much of the pen, and the pens have trees planted in them to provide shade for the deer. The breeding facility building has different chutes and can accommodate working the deer and sorting them to the desired pen. The deer pens have a misting system for spraying against insects. There are currently no deer in the breeding pens, and they were released into the main enclosure in 2018 or 2019 per the farm manager. Records of the deer breeding on the farm are maintained and available to serious buyers upon request.
Hunting- The deer on the property have plenty of nutrition to help ensure a healthy herd. Many of the deer taken are clean, typical trophy deer. The current owner enjoys bow hunting, and the property is set up well for that. There is a 3D bow range set up at the north end of the main shop. There are numerous foodplots throughout the tract, totaling about 35 acres, that are planted to provide forage for the deer. The farm manager says he puts out about 5000 lbs of supplemental feed per month. One large field in front of the lodge and main home has large flood lights that can be turned on for viewing the herd at night. The farm manager told stories of seeing 60-70 deer from the stand in one hunt. The hunting stands on the property consist of elevated, well-constructed shooting houses and ladder stands. One of the shooting houses has been fitted to allow for bow hunting. There is a rifle range for sighting in on the north end of the property.
Timber, Water, and other Features- The timber on the property varies from large hardwood bottoms to recently thinned pine plantations. There are areas with young planted pines to provide good bedding cover for the deer. The variation in timber allows the hunter to enjoy different hunting scenarios and it provides the habitat the wildlife need to thrive. In addition to a large herd of whitetail deer, there is a healthy population of turkey. There are two large creeks that converge on the property, forming Beaver Creek. Several smaller streams and drainages provide year-round water to the wildlife. Two bridges have been constructed of railroad cars, and make great crossings. There are miles and miles of good interior roads and trails. The high fence was constructed in approximately 2006 of good wire, metal posts, and topped with barbed wire. The fence is well-maintained, and the farm manager rides it most every day to ensure its integrity. It is sprayed to prevent vegetation from growing through it. The main entrance to the property has a large gate that can be operated remotely or by key-pad. A beautiful, tree-lined drive leads to the lodge and main house. Great attention to detail has been put into every facet of La Potencia, and the current and previous owners have managed the property well. The property was previously known as Beaver Creek Ranch before the current owner purchased it.
