Are you in the market for your very own trophy whitetail deer camp that hasn’t been hunted in over 20+ years? Imagine being perched in a tree atop the ridge knowing that this dirt has been completely free of human pressure. Although it may sound too good to be true, you heard me right. This property is truly one-in-a-million - perfectly setup to be one of the most sought-after tracts in the big buck factory of Richland County.
You’ll find this cozy haven off a quiet country road in a region well recognized for world-class deer hunting. Basecamp consists of a home that served as a weekend retreat since the day it’s been built back in 1991. Although it’s been a vacation home, this certainly would fulfill a permanent residence if one would wish. This 2,000+ sq ft home features 2-beds, 2-baths and a 2-car attached garage. The home is a standard ranch style one story residence that has a very enticing interior. A large unfinished basement has a bathroom already plumbed including a Jacuzzi. The basement area would make for an ideal extra bedroom or bunk room. The beauty of this home is that it isn’t wildly extravagant with over-the-top bells n’ whistles, however, very clean and well kempt - making it a pleasantly plush hunting camp to bring your friends, family and loved ones.
The land features an astonishing number of impressive landmarks, which include epic rock outcroppings, a natural spring that feeds into a pond and even a stunning waterfall. With the fisherman in mind, you’ll find a Class II trout stream that runs along the northerly boundary. Hawkins Creek is a spring fed stream that’s a tributary of the Pine River. The creek has been extensively modified which has exploded the water quality and habitat. There’s been shockingly big trout caught from this very creek.
In regard to the timberland, you won’t find better wildlife habitat. The forested ground consists of meadows that can easily be transformed into wildlife rich food plots. There’s a lot of mature timber decked in Oak, Pine and Walnut. A beautiful internal trail system wraps throughout the rolling topography offering limitless walking trails, atv routes and treestand setups.
I haven’t walked the property once without jumping deer, including a giant buck with some serious antler potential last time I was there. This won’t surprise you considering the crisscrossing deer trails seemingly every square yard. A property like this that hasn’t received hunting pressure can be created into one of the best buck hunting tracts in the county. Several meadows can be tilled into grocery factories, which would only excel the hunting quality. Currently, there’s multiple trail cameras surveying the land capturing velvet bucks. There will be photos uploaded over the course of the next few weeks if it doesn’t sell before that.
Currently, the property is enrolled in MFL-Closed (Managed Forest Land) until December 31st, 2017. There’s 10-acres in the program, which will soon come out or can easily be re-enrolled. The current Taxes are Due NOTE: tractor, brush hog, lawn equipment and other items are included in sale.
