Located in Carroll County, MS, approximately ten miles north of Greenwood, MS, off Highway 7 on Sharkey Bayou. 5 Star is convenient to Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama and Louisiana via I-55 and Highway 82.

The caretaker lives on-site in the private caretakers' suite and quarters. Sharkey Bayou is the property's centerpiece and is historical in nature for its duck production. Sharkey Bayou is a natural cypress and tupelo gum break that holds water year-round growing native moist-soil vegetation for waterfowl food sources. The property includes ''green timber'' and ''open field'' hunting, with all the blinds accessible by boat from the covered boat shed at the lodge. The boatshed has an enclosed mudroom for storage of your hunting gear. The property has been professionally managed since its inception, and the history of massive quantity and quality of ducks is quite impressive.
In addition to the excellent duck hunting, 5 Star offers trophy whitetail deer, turkey, dove, hog, and small game hunting on approximately 1,445± acres. The history of the hunting success is just like the name; it is Five Stars! The property has been maintained, cared for, and managed for maximum duck productivity for over three decades! Its proximity to Greenwood offers fine dining at the Crystal Grill, Lusco's, Giardina's, and numerous other famous Delta Restaurants. The club has five owners; only two have changed in its 33-year history. This is the first opportunity to own the world-famous 5 Star Hunting Club since its formation in 1976. The Legendary 5 Star can now be purchased for the first time in history!
The full-time, year-round manager/guide takes care of all the duties of maintaining the hunting lodge, duck blinds, deer stands, food plots, camp vehicles, boats, motors, and equipment. All you need is the love of the outdoors and the passion for hunting... everything else is taken care of for you! As a rule of thumb, there are approximately 1,000± acres of water and 450± acres of mature hardwood timber. The road system throughout the hardwoods is extensive. There is a well on the south line of the property which you can flood the structures to the southern half of the property if needed.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own this property, as it has never been available for purchase in its Five Star History.
