Being on the +-358 acre Richland Creek Tract in trophy managed Talbot County GA is reminiscent of being in a national forest, with nearly wall to wall mature pine and hardwood timber.  Conveniently located between Columbus and Macon GA and in the same family for two generations, the aesthetic Richland Creek Tract has 1.2 miles of frontage on Richland Creek.  Richland Creek is a major tributary to the famed Flint River just a little under 8 miles downstream from the tract (as the crow flies).  Wait, it gets even better:  You will own both sides of Richland Creek for +-0.5 miles of the creek frontage, and it is easy to cross in multiple spots for hunting, or even logging.  There are an additional +-1.2 miles of un-named creeks and +-1.9 miles of drains on the tract.  There is a 1.3 acre nice pond at the north end of the property.  The pond is shared with another large landowner. So, plenty of water for deer and other wildlife, and some fishing for you.     

There is +-230 acres of mature upland pine/hardwood, and +-118 acres of mature cove and bottomland hardwood.  There are all kinds of timber management options ranging from leave as is, thin timber, clearcut and replant, or a combination of these.  A significant component of the hardwood is various oak species, providing lots of acorns for the healthy deer population.  The pine and hardwood has quality grade sawtimber present.  Two large fields on the northwest side of the property provide great longer range hunting opportunities, and three small food plots on the south side are excellent bow hunting spots and shorter range rifle hunting. There is so much timber on the property, there is great visibility for hunting and the woods are pleasant to walk, even now in late summer/early fall with everything still green. There +-4.6 miles of roads for access throughout the property.  

If privacy is a plus, and it is, the Richland Creek tract may be just the right property for you, because access is via a +-0.14 mile deeded easement.  Power is just +-0.14 miles away from the property at Macon Highway (US 80).  No public road poaching here, plus the nearly square shape of the property and having creeks for much of the property lines provides all around great privacy.  The topography is mostly rollong, but with some flat land and some steeper aesthetic bluffs along Richland Creek.   

Lots of aesthetic potential homesites, and some good potential lake or pond sites.  

Some division is possible.  It is parceled in two parcels, with Tract 1 being +-220 acres and Tract 2 being +-138 acres.  The seller will consider selling Tract 1 or Tract 2 at $3450 per acre.  Tract 1 & 2 combined is offered at $2995 per acre.
