The high-fence enclosure encompasses a total of 730+/- acres and has a separate 150+/- acre enclosure inside the main enclosure that can be used to separate game. There is an additional 400+/- acres outside of the enclosure that is also exceptional free range hunting. The property has been extensively managed for wildlife for years. Over $150,000 in whitetail breeder bucks have been bred and released into the enclosure with approximately 6 bucks harvested in 4+ years. The genetics inside the enclosure will excite any seasoned hunter with bucks in the 160” class range and better. The very low hunting pressure, feeding programs, and predator management have also resulted in exceptional turkey populations. The property also has a healthy population of fallow deer. It is estimated as of last year, 2020, approximately 50 fallow doe and 25 fallow bucks make up the heard. They are a variety of spotted, brown, and white. As a result of this breeder season, the herd is estimated to be close to 200. The hunting simply does not get much better than this.
