A legacy can live on in photos, stories and memories, but it’s land that can truly provide a tangible example of those before us. The main parcel of Three Notch Plantation as it exists today is one of the finest legacy properties in the Union Springs Plantation Belt. At 5,060± acres, this is the largest wild quail plantation on the market today in the Southeast. It boasts rolling topography, multiple ponds, flowing creeks, very good soils, pristine hardwoods, great timber, and unmatched quail habitat. Also offered in several parcels, this is a rare opportunity to own a wild quail plantation of this size.

And as the name infers, the history here goes beyond the family, named for trail markings on Andrew Jackson’s march to New Orleans. While the history here is fascinating, the modern day Three Notch is absolutely breathtaking. Slow rolling hills and mature pine timber dominate the landscape. The hardwood draws and edges remain intact, as recommended by the the renowned quail biologist, Mr. Walter Rosene, almost six decades ago. Nearly 50 miles of roads complement the bends and hills of the terrain, making it extremely easy to access every portion of the property.

Maintained with prescribed fire and a simple approach, the habitat quality and diversity here is second-to-none. The byproduct is world class hunting opportunities including wild quail, trophy whitetail, wild turkeys, and the occasion flight of woodcock. Established food plots help supplement the large numbers of mast producing trees. Additionally, the current hunting group strictly adheres to Quality Deer Management practices which leads the trophy deer.

Three Notch’s Quail management plan centers around the formula producing the most amount of birds per acre for the lowest amount spent. The habitat in parts can almost be described as textbook and the numbers show. Strategic brood plots are scattered all across the property near the maintained feed line. Limiting the number of hunt days as well as rotating courses help maintain Three Notch’s high bird count.

The city of Union Springs, known as the Bird Dog Field Trial Capital of the World, welcomes hundreds of tourists during the field trial season. Three Notch has been the site of several field trials for the bygone landowners association. Three Notch’s own “Sis”, an Irish Setter, won first place at the Alabama Shooting Dog Invitational. Near the main barn are multiple dog runs along with a smaller 5-run kennel. Between the pointers and setters, the history of quality dogs contributes to the legacy of Three Notch.
