Little Cedar Creek Hunting Preserve is an outstanding timber investment for sale, which also offers an excellent hunting amenity with abundant wildlife and established wildlife food plots throughout the property. With two ponds and Little Cedar Creek running through the northern half of the property, there are multiple sites that are well suited for homes or a nice hunting lodge. All of this is only 30 minutes from downtown Macon, Georgia.
The property is located only 30 minutes from downtown Macon or Eatonton, and one and half hours from Atlanta. The surrounding area is primarily timber tracts with mini farms and rural homesteads.
The property can be accessed from US Hwy 129, using Fortville Road, or from GA Hwy 22, using Old Fortville Road. These roads lead to 5th Street, a county-maintained dirt road, which provides approximately one half mile of frontage along the southeast boundary of the property. There is one gated and locked entrance to the property from 5th Street.
The internal road system is good and allows access to all parts of the property. Little Cedar Creek has a dam that also serves as good access to the northwestern part of the property.
Upon entering the property from 5th Street, one can see the 24-year-old pine plantations, providing habitat for wildlife, such as deer and turkey which can often be seen here. The topography is gently rolling throughout the property, from the highest point at the entrance, sloping down to Little Cedar Creek.
This tract is an ideal hunting preserve with tranquil water features. There are 208 acres of harvest age pine plantations and 74 acres of 2-year-old pine plantations. Natural hardwood areas are scattered throughout the pine plantations and along the creek and ponds.
The number and placement of wildlife food plots scattered over the property are impressive, and deer and turkey are abundant.
Little Cedar Creek has been dammed up, both with a constructed dam and by beavers on the property. This has provided a long area of permanent water that is attractive to waterfowl and offers the opportunity for the fisher man or woman.
Two constructed ponds are also located near the middle of the property, which can be managed for fishing.
These ponds are among the numerous sites that would be ideal for the placement of a residence or hunting lodge.
The northern boundary is defined by joining a large power transmission line. The Southern boundary by 5th Road, and adjoining properties are predominantly forested properties, owned by Weyerhaeuser and private land owners.
With the exception of the ponds and Little Cedar Creek, the property is entirely forested with 86% of the land in managed pine plantations. All mature stands of planter pines have been selectively thinned to encourage the growth of small and large sawtimber throughout the remaining stand of pines.
The 2-year-old pines are improved loblolly varieties and have stand counts suitable for maximum production.
