This would be an ideal tract for a hunting camp or country retreat; incredible views abound on this property.

In addition to serving as a great timber investment, the Barbour Creek Tract offers some of the best deer and turkey hunting in south Alabama. The rolling terrain includes several drainages lined with large hardwoods that all empty into Barbour Creek. Barbour Creek is a gorgeous, sandy-bottomed creek that runs for well over a mile from west to east forming the north boundary of the tract - Barbour Creek empties into Lake Eufaula and is seasonally navigable by kayak or other low draft vessels. It is easily 30 feet across and is also a great place to search for Indian artifacts. The abundant cover, water, and mature hardwoods (including many large white oaks) all contribute to creating the ideal habitat for deer, turkey, and other native wildlife. With good internal trails that provide access throughout the tract, and numerous established food plots in all the right places, it is perfectly set up for hunting. Deer harvest on this tract has been confined to a few mature bucks for the last 5 years. There has been little to no turkey hunting pressure on this tract for the last 5 years as well.
