895+/- Acres Yazoo County- I don't know what else a deer or turkey hunter would want! It has over ¾ mile of Big Black River frontage along with higher elevations that don't flood. Welcome to the Coody Place, this property was bought by Mr. L.M. Coody in 1919 and has been in the Coody Family ever since. The family has farmed, hunted, and managed the timber with the upmost care and thought.
The Coody Place is located on Holoman Rd. in the Phoenix Community about 28 miles from Flora. The very western part of the property is hills the area is known for but topography soon turns to rolling hills then to level terrain and river bottom. The timber is hardwood with very little pine mixed in. The timber has been on a 20-year thinning rotation for about 40 years with the next thinning scheduled for 9 years from now. About 200 acres of old agriculture fields are enrolled in a hardwood CRP contract that pays the landowner $31,000 per year. The CRP timber is about 17 years old, and the contract has about 9 years remaining. At the expiration of the current CRP contract the possibility of renewing is very good or you could decline to renew it. Another nice aspect of this property is the road system. The main roads are wide and well maintained with smaller roads leading throughout the property. Several food plots are in place ready for you to decide what to plant.
This area is very well known for the quantity and quality of deer. Yazoo county is regularly in the top 5 counties producing Record Book deer. Here are the facts as presented by Mississippi Sportsman magazine:
''The eight Mississippi counties ranking at the top in the MRP (Magnolia Records Program) listing of bucks measuring 150 gross points and above are, in descending order: Madison, Hinds, Claiborne, Yazoo, Adams, Noxubee, Wilkinson and Copiah. Interestingly, the top four border the Big Black River.''
The reason for this, according to Chad Dacus of the MDWF is the soil type.
The turkey hunting is also elite, the habitat is perfect for turkey because of the large hardwoods, hills and river bottom.
There is so much to say about this place, it's hard to put everything in words, it simply must been seen to appreciate. If large acreage, large hardwoods and Big Black River frontage sound interesting to you please contact us and take a look!
