Terrain:

The 1220 North property is a multiuse property with a great mix of thick hardwood forest, and cultivated farmland that rolls gently to the south into the Lake Creek drainage system. The northern section of this beautiful property is predominantly cultivated farmland perfect for cattle grazing or wildlife food plots. These large agricultural fields are excellent areas for hunting geese feeding on the planted crops. For the varmint hunter, the large open areas are great choices for predator calling, as coyotes, bobcats, and fox are common to the farm. The southern section of the property is comprised almost entirely of thick hardwood forest. Lake Creek forms the southern boundary of this timber rich area and provides a great travel corridor for larger game in the area such as Whitetail deer, turkey, and wild hog. A dense hardwood forest comprised of Hickory, Locust, and many varieties of Oaks supply wildlife with shelter and mass nutrition in the area. Several lanes or “senderos” have been cleared through the dense forest to benefit the property. These areas are excellent locations for hunting blind setups and viewing for hundreds of yards to scan for game traveling throughout this area. In the more shaded areas of the forests, the openings are wide enough that browse for wildlife has the opportunity to grow where it normally would not. Food plots are great additions to these areas for wildlife to feed. The edge cover these strips create are great transitional zones, where wildlife feel more comfortable to be in the open. Water sources include 3 stock ponds and a beautiful secluded 7 acre lake located neatly in the center of the property. This lake is an exceptional fishery, being stocked with bass, crappie, and perch. The ample rain supply and good blackland soil produces deep clear water for the ponds and lake. Waterfowl hunters will find the various water sources on the property an outstanding habitat for ducks, geese, and hunting with decoys in the fall and winter seasons. With close proximity to the Sulphur River and Jim Chapman Lake, a large variety of waterfowl use this property throughout the season. The thick bottomlands are always a great spot to hunt wild hogs that flourish in this area of East Texas. It is not uncommon for boars to reach 250+ pounds and produce exceptional trophy tusks. Another great asset of the 1220 North is the fencing. The perimeter and interior fences include new 5 and 6 strand barbed wire with metal tubing gates. The electric service conveniently located along County Road 1280 offers you several possible building sights from the higher elevation on the property to enjoy breathtaking views of the changing foliage in the fall. Whether your interest is agriculture, the outdoors, or a place to build, the 1220 North has a great mix of features for your perfect countryside experience!
