245+/- Acres of Hunting Land with a Cabin for sale in Gates County NC! Gates County isn’t known for its big cities or fancy living, but it’s famous for its agriculture and wildlife! This 245-acre gem is an absolute honey hole for deer, turkeys, bear, and even quail and other assorted small game! Upon walking through the property there were deer and turkeys in the fields surrounding the property and quail flying up along the paths. If you have been looking for that perfect spot with everything you need in a recreational hideaway this property is right for you!
A section of the property had a timber harvest 8 years ago that left over half of the property as a cut over with pines making up the majority of the regrowth. this makes for some fantastic bedding habitat for both deer and bear. The remaining tall timber is the perfect habitat for big game and there are several sections that will hold water throughout the majority of the year and could be further engineered and the canopy cleared to hold waterfowl. The best part is it comes with a 1300+/- sq. ft. house that has plenty of room for you and your family or all your hunting buddies to hang out before and after the hunt!
Its been said “Why buy a cow when you can get the milk for free?” This tract is surrounded by hundreds of acres of croplands, so there is a non-stop supply of food for the wildlife. You can literally sit in the back yard of the house and look out over 100 acres of cropland to see deer and turkey walking the field edges. It just doesn’t get any better than this! The same sellers own the farm so working out a long-term lease for the hunting rights to the Ag lands is an absolute. Don’t miss out on a terrific opportunity to have it all, all of the fun, all of the memories and all of hunting opportunities this property offers.
To the south west of this property you can be in the small town of Gatesville with access to Bennets Creek for some great fishing. Also not far from here is the Chowan River, which is a fantastic fishery for all kinds of freshwater species! Looking for more hunting opportunities? The Chowan Swamp Game Lands is just a short distance from Gatesville. http://www.ncwildlife.org/Portals/0/Hunting/Game-Land-Maps/Coastal/Chowan-Swamp.pdf. The Chowan Game Land is 30 acres of Tidal Swamp Forest located on Pembroke Creek outside of Edenton, NC. Management consists only of land protection and boundary posting. Chowan Swamp Game Land totals 31,372 acres in Bertie, Gates, and Hertford counties.
The Chowan River proper originates at the North Carolina-Virginia border where the Blackwater and Nottoway rivers meet. Narrow and lively at its source, the 50-mile-long Chowan flows southeast past such small towns as Winton and Colerain before broadening to nearly two miles wide where it meets the Albemarle Sound near Edenton. Along with the Roanoke River, it supplies most of the fresh water to the sound, which is part of the second-largest estuary system in the United States (the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuary).
