Remote Mountain Hunting Property In The Heart Of The Appalachian Mountains


This area is known to produce some giant bucks, bear and bull elk!  This property provides the perfect habitat for the ever-growing elk population of Eastern Kentucky that so many people are gravitating to.  Here you will find some of the most beautiful mountain terrains anywhere east of the Mississippi River and only a short drive from nearby towns.  This property even has a healthy herd of wild horses that roam the reclaimed mining ridges adding to its mystic.  This gorgeous get-away/hunting tract is tucked away in one of the most remote and secluded mountain settings you’ll find anywhere.  The wildlife plethora here consists of whitetails, turkey, bear, elk, bobcat, coyotes, quail, and various other small game.  You will be hard-pressed to find anywhere, the versatile hunting opportunities this big country property offers for huge, mature, mountain bucks, eastern gobblers, and even the occasional bear, bobcat, or elk if you draw a tag.  The wide range of habitat this property entails offers so much to the various species that call this big tract home.  This property has some breathtaking views of the valleys in nearly every direction from the upper elevations.  Not a neighbor in sight here, quiet mountain solitude the way it should be.  This tract takes in numerous seasonal watersheds and is made up of a natural mix of regenerating oak/hickory hardwoods along the upper hillsides with soft mast maple and poplar along the lower slopes, with a healthy blend of reclaimed strip minefields and intermittent wildlife watering holes from years past.  Lush undergrowth in the upper reaches provides excellent cover and a healthy balance of habitat and food for the abundant deer, turkey, elk, bear and the not so wild, “wild horses” that reside here.  A well-positioned network of roads leads around the upper ridges of the property for ATV and horseback riding opportunities.  The heavily textured topography provides a multitude of ideal off-the-grid cabin sites with beautiful views, especially in the upper reaches and is ideally suited for a weekend getaway in the mountains to hunt, hike, camp, or explore.  The last several miles driving in through the old mining areas, offer some beautiful landscape and views as well as relaxing your mind.  If you want to be close to civilization and its amenities, this tract will not be for you.  This property offers you, your friends and family more than enough room to roam and hunt without stepping on each other’s toes.  If you’re looking for a big-woods hunting property with relaxation and adventure possibilities, give me a call and let’s see if this beautiful property is just what you have been looking for.
