81. 57 acres for sale in Rockingham County. Three tracts being sold as one. Ideal for hunting and or investment. The property is located between Madison and Wentworth.
This property is located on Smothers Road off of NC HWY 704 between Madison and Wentworth. It has approximately 460 feet of road frontage. The 81.57 acres are three tracts being sold as one. The property is mostly mixed young timber from a previous cut in 2007. The old logging road circles around the largest part of the acreage providing access for most of the land. It needs clearing in some places. There is also a gas pipeline that crosses the property providing another point of access.
This tract is ideal for someone looking to have acreage in one of the up and coming big buck counties in the state. The area around Wentworth and Madison is known for producing trophy class bucks for the county. Several big bucks from Rockingham County are already starting to appear on social media via trail cameras for 2017.
The young dense timber provides great bedding for the deer which helps hold them on the acreage. Several deer jumped from bedding while I was walking the property. The tract is encompassed by many agricultural fields.
There are numerous stand and food plot possibilities with this tract of land. The gas pipeline would make a great place for a food plot and there are several mature trees along the edge for a tree stand or ladder stand. The logging roads could provide good tripod feeder locations along with small food plots. Over all, the layout of the property offers several different stand locations to hunt the wind or to keep from over hunting a particular area.
Turkey sign was also plentiful on the property. Cleaning out the logging roads would help make for a quiet early morning set up for an old gobbler.
If you have been dreaming of owning and living on your own hunting land, then this could be the place. On the west side of the property there is an area for a possible building site. Come and build your dream home and have prime hunting at your back door.
