Country living on this natural pine and oak forest parcel is easy and relaxing. The property is close enough to town for convenience, but secluded enough to get away from it all. This tract offers good deer and turkey hunting, perhaps even from your front porch. If you want a simple hunting place close to town, with timber growing for extra income, this tract fits the bill.

This is a beautiful, wooded property with mature hardwoods and pines.

The tract offers good hunting grounds for deer and turkey, and is an excellent site for growing timber with natural stands of pine and hardwood.
