OCTOBER 25th AUCTION / Center Bayou North is a large recreational tract containing 1,261 +/- acres and located in Colfax, Louisiana just 8 miles east of I-49 and 12 miles west of Hwy 167. The entire western boundary fronts the banks of Bayou Darrow, while the majority of the eastern side borders Bayou Rigolette. This acreage was developed for mitigation purposes, leaving what is now a food and cover rich hunting mecca. The primary road coming into the property from the north is an all weather rock road, and the majority of trails have been well built for ease of travel during the wet season. There is even rock at each creek crossing to help with washout and rutting. The entire block is now in a diverse majority oak stand and other bottomland species with shooting lanes and trails traversing throughout. There is right at $1000/acre in site prep and planting cost. However, there are also mature trees that existed along the bayous, creeks, old fence rows, roads, etc. allowing for some landscape diversity from the more recent tree plantings.
There was absolutely no shortage of deer or hog tracts throughout this acreage, and the hunting will only get better and better as the oaks grow closer to maturity and start producing acorns. The majority of shallow water areas were also holding both wood ducks and mallards and again as the oaks start producing the duck hunting will also greatly improve. The local whitetail genetics coupled with supplemental feeding and mature harvest, would have this tract producing massive deer with the added benefit of the duck, hog and small game hunting. There is also around +/- 4 unencumbered acres to build a lodge/camp on right next to a nice size equipment barn.
Owning a large contiguous block of hunting ground along the Red River just does not seem to come available all that often. Give me a call today and lets go check it out! Realtree Land Pro - David Hooper 318-453-9101
