One of the catfish ponds has been converted into a large duck hole of about 25 acres +/-, and it holds a surprising amount of ducks for this part of the state. The farm is located in the heart of the Black Belt, which is widely known as one of the best deer hunting areas in the state of Alabama. The combination of fertile soils and abundant food on the ag land produces some large whitetail bucks. There are several shooting houses and food plots located on the property.
