With its small fields, pine woods, creek, and oak bottoms, this area has always been a prime location for wildlife. Hunting and fishing are a tradition here. We always have an abundant supply of wildlife. We plant numerous fields with wildlife in mind. As well as food plots to attract deer and turkey, we also plant spring crops such as Lab Lab, soybeans, and cow peas to ensure a healthy herd of wildlife. We have a reputation for having the most deer and for the biggest deer in this area. Need a change of pace? Our pond is stocked with catfish that make for some mighty fine eating!
