They also have a 25 acre "safe haven" in the middle of the property that no one sets foot on so that the deer can have all of the cover and nutrition needed for those bucks to mature.

The largest of the 3, is a 5-acre pond which is meticulously managed, with the owner building man-made structures for fishing habitat. Imagine catching all of the catfish, crappie, and bass in one trip to your ponds! Several bass weighing 7-9lbs have been caught and nearly every time you fish this you will be able to pull in a nice 5lb bass!
