1,730 Acres Southeast, Georgia
“Home of some of the finest Bow hunting the South has to offer.”
An unequalled gentleman’s hunting plantation consisting of a spacious 1,730 acres lies in the heart of southeast Georgia with paved road frontage less than 40 minutes from Augusta, Georgia in the farming community of Jefferson County. Georgia’s coast & Savannah are about 2 hours away, as is Atlanta and Macon. Towns and cites in the proximity include Louisville 5 miles south, Wrens 5 miles north, Statesboro is an hour south, Jacksonville, FL 4 hours south and Hilton Head Island, SC lies 2.5 hours eastward.
Heavily wooded and offering a myriad of opportunity for the investor/sportsman, this Georgia plantation has been groomed to satisfy all of a sportsman’s dreams. Planted pines of varying ages provide cover for the game, while providing aesthetics and income opportunity for the investor. This property has many acres of enormous pine and hardwood timber, bounded by 3 miles of Rocky Comfort Creek. Hardwood drains traverse the property providing year round water for the game and a variety of pond sites. Several locations are utilized to control water levels as habitat for the generous population of wood ducks, mallards and other waterfowl. Miles of primary roads, secondary roads and hunting buggy trails assure optimum access throughout the property.
Near the center of the property are fields planted for deer and turkey for year round high protein food plots. This property is absolutely loaded with mast producing trees including, wild pear, crabapple, various oaks, wild persimmon and Japanese persimmon. For 15 years, this very private plantation has been managed for bow hunting trophy class whitetail deer and has produced numerous monster bucks. Many celebrity hunts have been filmed on this plantation with incredible success. Several beaver ponds provide fantastic habitat and cover that hold these bucks, many in the 140 to 150-class range. Maybe one of them will be your next record monster buck.
Ivey Springs Plantation has its own floodable, plantable duck pond. There are already several areas where the ducks roost and forage on natural foods. However, we have one special site just below a bluff overlooking a flat that is fertilized and limed planted in a variety of foods. What a site that will be at daybreak on cool clear morning!
We have manicured a portion of the upland pines for several Bobwhite Quail courses. Ivey Springs sports a fair wild bird population that can be expanded with a little management. Without a doubt, we can have a very productive release bird program encompassing approximately 500 acres. Several openings, as well as a maze of roads and trails, have been planted with sorghum, millet, peas and other various quail foods. There is good cover, an abundance of water and predator control has not been a big issue but addressed. If you like quail hunting, here lies a great opportunity to walk or ride several courses and enjoy the company of family and friends (or Business) in one fantastic environment!
Considerable prescribed burns have been completed, and quail, turkey and deer are common sights browsing through the upland woods. The game thrives on the lush vegetation that sprouts after a burn. The controlled burn opens the woods up creating nesting habitat, better access and a clean fresh appearance. Not all areas are treated with fire, as thick cover is also important to Ivey Springs’ success, diversity and thriving wildlife population. We think Ivey Springs is pretty spectacular now as a hunting paradise but as this program matures, we think this property will be one of the finest recreational or income producing properties anywhere.
The finishing touch is a stunning Southern-style 4 bed, 3 1/2 bath, 4,650 sq ft lakefront home with hardwood floors, vaulted ceiling and spacious kitchen. The home is situated at the end of a winding drive, resting on the banks of 2 lakes commonly guarded by bald eagles. The 5- & 2-acre lakes are loaded with bream, bass, and catfish. Flocks of turkey and deer frequently browse in the yard. The great room with a vaulted ceiling and fireplace is an excellent place to display your trophies. You will look a long time before you find another property with this degree of diversity and professionally managed habitat and wildlife.
Ivey Springs Plantation is a very rare find, perfect for a private residence, corporate hideaway or commercial hunting operation. We think Ivey Springs is worth the time to take a look if you like privacy, a fine place to live, plenty of wildlife, income/investment potential and a large property successfully managed for wildlife.
