pond. There are already
several areas where the ducks roost and forage on natural foods.

that will be at daybreak on cool clear morning!

expanded with a little management. Without a doubt, we can have a very
productive release bird program encompassing approximately 500 acres.

planted with sorghum, millet, peas and other various quail foods. There
is good cover, an abundance of water and predator control has not been

opportunity to walk or ride several courses and enjoy the company of
family and friends (or Business) in one fantastic environment!
prescribed burns have been completed, and quail, turkey and deer are
common sights browsing through the upland woods. The game thrives on
the lush vegetation that sprouts after a burn. The controlled burn

fresh appearance. Not all areas are treated with fire, as thick cover

wildlife population. We think Ivey Springs is pretty spectacular now as
a hunting paradise but as this program matures, we think this property
will be one of the finest recreational or income producing properties

ceiling and spacious kitchen. The home is situated at the end of a

eagles. The 5- & 2-acre lakes are loaded with bream, bass, and
catfish. Flocks of turkey and deer frequently browse in the yard. The
great room with a vaulted ceiling and fireplace is an excellent place
to display your trophies. You will look a long time before you find

perfect for a private residence, corporate hideaway or commercial
hunting operation. We think Ivey Springs is worth the time to take a
