Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) January 27, 2014
Buyers have the opportunity of a lifetime to purchase roughly 2,600 recreational and timber investment acres in the rolling hills of southwest Mississippi. Tatum Plantation was the dream child of J. Alan and Renee B. Priest, owners. They’ve now decided to pass the land they lovingly cultivated onto new owners.
“After purchasing our pine-covered property in 1991, we wanted to manage the wildlife and be able to hunt on our own land,” Renee said. “Every year we culled out the inferior deer, always aiming for a 2-to-1 buck-to-doe ratio. We are extremely proud of the recreational paradise we’ve created, and now we are ready to move on to other ventures.”
Tatum Plantation near Centreville, Miss., just an hour north of Baton Rouge. It features about 2,600 acres of pines, mixed hardwood drains and creek bottoms with a timber value of approximately $4 million. All this is surrounded by 11 miles of high fencing to protect the deer population from other hunters. In addition, the owners have spent over twenty years culling inferior deer, improving browse, planting food plots and providing supplemental feed to improve populations.
Improvements on the property include two horse barns with eight total stalls, a riding arena, climate-controlled game processing shed and exquisite lodge overlooking Honey Hole Lake. The property is also home to peach, pear and blueberry orchards.
“Tatum Plantation is a study in quality wildlife management with world-class accommodations and is ideal for buyers interested in investing in timber,” said Slade Priest, REALTOR with United Country – Gibson Realty & Land Company and son of the owners. “The property is available turnkey as a portion of the existing staff and outfitting company are willing to continue to manage the property after its sale for a fee negotiated with the buyer, allowing a continuation of the guided hunts and game processing.”
