Located on a dead-end road just 15 minutes from I-22 is Shepherd Bend. This property offers multiple opportunities for the hunter, fishermen, or investor. The obvious highlight of the property is over 3,000' of frontage on the Mulberry Fork of the Black Warrior River. This river is known for its fishing and recreation, and the world record striped bass was caught just 7 miles downriver. The Mulberry Fork is also known for its catfish, spotted bass and panfish. There are also 2 different sloughs on the property that look like they could provide some waterfowl hunting opportunities. The remainder of the property is wooded, with the majority of the timber being loblolly pine. Around 75 acres of pine are 20-25 years old and ready for their first thinning. The remainder of the property is natural regeneration mixed hardwoods, all at least 19 years old. The timber could be intensely managed for production, or it could be heavily thinned to benefit deer, turkeys, and other wildlife. This area is considered a hidden gem for deer hunting, and I found tons of rubs, scrapes, and tracks as I walked the property. There is a trail system that gives access to most of the property, and it could easily be expanded to create even better access and food plots. The topography ranges from gently rolling to fairly steep. For the investor, this property could easily be subdivided into smaller riverfront lots, and a boat launch could be added as well. River Crest Drive bisects the property, with the majority of the property being on the west side of the road. Power is available all along the road, and there are several nice spots to clear a huge lot to build a house or cabin. Please contact listing agent Spenser Bradley for a private tour of this property!
