PEARSON ALABAMA OXBOW 454
PRICE IMPROVEMENT: The Pearson Alabama Oxbow 454 tract! This listing in Autauga County, Alabama is a one-of-a-kind oasis featuring extraordinary terrain, outstanding hunting, and even investment opportunities.
This exclusive 454-acre property is a restored Alabama River oxbow with an island of woods encompassed by expansive fields of corn, soybeans, and cotton that thrive in the nutrient-dense soil of this natural phenomenon. This special retreat has been meticulously tended by the landowner for decades. Plentiful streams abound which help attract and keep wildlife and also let you manage that wildlife to the fullest extent.
The natural topography is so very unique for this region of the Alabama Blackbelt; with a beautiful mix of majestic oaks and mature pines in its upland areas contrasted with the cypress, black willow, and tupelo gum swamps. There is a remarkable upraised road system that provides access to the vast majority of the land, as well as a historic former railroad bed that has been completely transformed into another established road that runs through the heart of the property.
Pearson is a recreational dream place with exceptional hunting for all sorts of game. Whitetail deer and eastern turkeys thrive here thanks to the food plots, surrounding row crops, and limitless water supply. This river region of Autauga County is also known for its outstanding dove and duck populations. The property boasts an almost seven-acre food plot in close proximity to the row crops making it ideal for dove shooting. It is a prime loafing spot for waterfowl flying along the river and has been host to epic duck hunts; thanks to a multitude of factors including its cypress swamp, numerous open duck holes, and the existing duckweed which is an exceptional food source. There is even a super convenient public boat launch – Swift Creek – across from the property allowing easy access to fishing, boating, or chasing ducks and geese on the river.
The Pearson Alabama Oxbow 454 tract is also optimal for the investor looking to take advantage of a potential wetland mitigation banking investment opportunity. Considering the only other mitigation bank that serves this watershed is getting critically low on mitigation credits the timing may be perfect for the establishment of another wetland mitigation bank.
This property is well located in Autauga County, Alabama just south of Highway 14 and southeast of Autaugaville. It is an easy drive from Montgomery and Birmingham. Access is directly off of paved county road 21 via three deeded easements. For more information or to schedule a private tour please call me, Eric Leisy, at 334-657-6707.
