The 25 acre lake was built in 2003 and stocked with bluegill and largemouth bass and has been intensively managed since its beginning. It consistently produces trophy largemouth bass and bluegill, in fact a 12 lb 2 oz bass was caught just last summer. The lake is surrounded by stands of picturesque hardwoods and abundant wildlife.
The property has been managed for timber and wildlife for numerous years. An intricate internal road system traverses the property, and many of the almost 13 miles of roads and trails have been rocked for year round travel. There are established strategically placed foodplots with shooting houses, and parts of the powerline right-of-way that are planted each year to attract the abundant deer and turkey populations that are found in Dallas County.
The timber on the tract consists of areas of intensively managed loblolly pine and beautiful hardwood slopes and bottoms. There are about 230 acres of mature, natural hardwood; 54 acres of 32 year old loblolly pine; 7 acres of 18 year old loblolly pine; 33 acres of powerline right-of-way; 18 acres of roads/foodplots; and approximately 154 acres of timber that was harvested in 2015 and reforested in January of 2017.
