Exceptional deer hunting, timberland and Social Storm™ property

Well capitalized and exceptionally well managed

Welcome to JK Timberland. For those of us who have ever dreamed of owning a trophy deer hunting property, where you can bring friends and family, where you can manage the deer herd without having to high fence you are going to enjoy hearing about what has been created here.

“This is one of those rare properties where the second you arrive you realize it’s well capitalized and exceptionally well managed. You know you are somewhere special.” Jon Kohler

This is the culmination of a lifelong dream and almost 20-year development into one of Georgia’s largest, most heavily managed trophy whitetail deer properties.

The 1,841 acres are 100% managed for whitetail deer consisting of 26 food plots spread out across almost 50 acres, 22 insulated box stands, and 10-1,000lb mineral feeders all accessed by over 23 miles of graded interior roads. An average of 8,000 lbs of protein are fed a month year-round.  A system of 28 trail cameras allows for impeccable record-keeping.

Those of us who love raising and hunting trophy Whitetails understand the biggest threat to any well-managed deer property is making sure neighbors and even guests aren’t setting back the program. Here, the way the topography lays, size, and the strategies in place, JK Timber has proven to do what few low-fenced places can do, and that is consistently harvest an average of 3 trophy bucks a year over the last decade. Some years as many as 5 have been harvested.

“I've seen it only a few times before. This is the kind of place, so well managed, where they watch each buck for years, give them names and when the opportunity comes to harvest the trophy buck (the size of which most would never have a chance in a lifetime) the owner lets it walk or even lets it walk three different times…” - Jon Kohler

"We have a rule at JK Timber. If you shoot a trophy deer here, you have to bring it up there and hang it on the wall for two years and then you can come back and get it and do whatever you want to with it. It's kind of a pride thing. It's you know, who shot the biggest deer? Well, there's mine. Where's yours? That type of bantering back and forth that goes on in hunt camp" - Jimmy Keys, Landowner, JK Timberland

One of the things that made JK Timber such a successful program is its mature hardwood bottoms. Covering 335 acres they are spread out across the property along the edges of 8+ miles of clear spring-fed creeks. The food plots are strategically placed mainly at the top of the ridges and stands positioned for minimal disturbance. Most of the stands are made by Hunter’s Comfort in North Carolina and one of the best box stands made. The location and size has been perfected over time.

"Those hardwood bottoms, they're beautiful. There's, especially, a few magnolias that'll make you stop and say, "holy cow I didn't know a magnolia could get this big." There's just some beautiful trees and they're just showering acorns. Sometimes you can't hear yourself think down there, 'cause the acorns are dropping so hard." - Jimmy Keys, Landowner, JK Timberland

The loblolly timber stands consists of all mature timber primarily saw-timber and chip-n-saw averaging a basal area of around 65 which is the ideal balance between deer/turkey management and timber value. There are exceptional timber markets in this area. There is a current timber cruise. The timber is managed with prescribed fire on a three-year rotation. Again, the ideal rotation to maximize deer and turkey habitat.

The improvements are specifically designed to provide the feeling of a “hunting camp” which encourages people doing things outside with others. Not surprisingly, the main feature is a creekside outdoor cooking area with fireplace overlooking Hanahatchee Creek.

 “I 100% understand and agree with the hunting camp feel. Huge lodges are great but really my best memories are the camaraderie of a hunting camp. Erica and I have worked hard at Lick Skillet to create the same feel, to have campfires, cook outside, and be outdoors as much as possible.” - Jon Kohler

The two Keystone log cabins were built in 2007, with 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms between the two; both are fully furnished. They have slept as many as 16 people for large family events.

The expansive 2,400 square foot concrete garage offers ample space to store all your outdoor gear - from ATVs to hunting equipment - and tools with ease. There is also a covered 300-foot rifle range.

The property is located just 18 minutes to Lumpkin, Georgia, 30 minutes to Eufaula, Alabama, and 38 minutes to Columbus, Georgia.

The property also has a very high Social Storm Properties ™ score. This is exactly the kind of property one would want to bring friends and family to during the next pandemic…or worse.
