Cooks Bend is a 325 acre +/- private ownership at Little Cook’s Bend in the middle of the Tombigbee River in Greene County. This island was formed when the US Army Corps of Engineers created a deeper channel for commercial use of the river. The island offers one of the most unique hunting experiences you have had, with access being only by boat. A small inland lake, lined with cypress trees, entices ducks of all species. The inland lake creates a safe haven for ducks and makes an excellent duck hole for hunting or photographing. There have been no motorized vehicles on this island since the owner purchased the property in 2008. The island is heavily timbered with several species of large oak trees, cypress, and pines. The island is teeming with many different types of wildlife, including ducks, deer, turkeys, and hogs. There are several sloughs on the west side that offer duck hunting and shallow water fishing for bass and crappie. The combination of abundant wildlife, big timber, and the sense of being all alone makes for a truly special hunting experience. The southern portion of the island is currently owned by the US Army Corps of Engineers for ongoing maintenance of the river, and their ownership is approximately 200 acres. The boundary line is well marked with red paint and and signage.
A conservation easement was donated on the property in December 2010 to the Alabama Forest Research Center. The easement essentially donated the rights of development and mining of sand and gravel. The owner retained the right to hunt, use the island for recreation, and manage and harvest timber subject to the timber management plan. The property will be sold subject to the easement, and a copy of the easement documents are available upon request to qualified buyers. The easement reserved the right to construct one headquarters building and some outbuildings on the island.
There is a beautiful custom cedar cabin or a riverside lot available less than a mile up the river that can be sold with the property if the buyer is interested. This is an incredible opportunity to own a very special piece of Alabama. Attached below is an article written by Brad Dye in The Meridian Star talking about his memories of hunting the island growing up!
