The landscape on this hunting farm is diverse, with 6 large game plots, multiple enclosed shooting houses, and mineral troughs with attached feeders, all strategically placed throughout the farm. In addition to the mature mast-producing oaks along the bottomland acres, the landowners have planted numerous sawtooth oaks, Nuttall oaks, chestnut trees, plum trees, persimmon, pear, and apple trees throughout the farm. The upland habitat provides excellent bedding and nesting conditions for turkeys and ideal cover for deer. The expansive acres and terrain provided many ideal hunting settings.
