Bucktail Plantation is a thriving retreat of 342 acres +/- with outstanding hunting and productive timberland. Two hardwood branches traverse the property providing excellent game habitat and hardwood corridors for the wildlife. The upland areas are a mixture of mature pine timber, a variety of different age pine plantations, hardwood strips and game patches lined with mast producing sawtooth oaks. Bucktail is managed for both timber income and wildlife. Habitat, diversity, wildlife, and timber have been a cornerstone of the management of Bucktail Plantation over the years. Throughout the years, the managers have maintained a thoughtful and effective timber harvest schedule to maintain these primary objectives.
The property has an excellent network of roads and firebreaks used to manage and monitor the ongoing management objectives. Property has a small pond and another strategically placed pond known as the “watering hole” for the abundance of wildlife on the property. We think this property is one of the better tracts we have seen in terms of the combination of timber and wildlife.
