Marsh and Timber – Off the Charts Hunting – Endless Opportunities
This property is 99 acres of bona fide Virginia hunting land. Located in Surry County, Virginia in between Richmond and Hampton Roads is a piece of land waiting for you to make a move on it. The property is covered with mature hardwoods and pines; timber so pretty and open that you can run through it! Located just a mile and a half south of the James River and three miles south of Hog Island Wildlife Management Area, these 99 acres are a mecca for ducks, geese, deer and turkey. Land like this does not come up for sale often in Virginia, so don’t hesitate or it could slip away.
With over a mile of waterfront along Chippokes Creek, the waterfowl hunting possibilities are absolutely endless. There are dozens of locations where you can build a blind, or you can hunt right out of the marsh or shoreline if you prefer. Not only does this property have over a mile of water, the creek is 100% navigable! Chippokes Creek is a tidal creek that flows from the James River and at high tide the marsh fills up with water and there is no place your john boat won’t be able to reach. Even at low tide, there is still plenty of water in the channels for you to sneak through. When temperatures drop and the duck impoundments ice up, Chippokes Creek will remain open as it is deep water with a solid current, making it the ideal choice for wintering waterfowl. Both resident and migratory geese roost in the creek nightly. Chippokes Creek is filled to the brim with both bass and crappie, so don’t forget to bring your fishing pole with you.
This is a low-pressure area, which makes it perfect for you to slip in quietly and have successful hunts. It’s located down a private, dirt road so human traffic is minimal, but wildlife traffic might as well be rush hour. Just across Chippokes Creek is Chippokes Plantation State Park. It’s hard to beat when your neighbor across the creek is a State Park with absolutely no waterfowl hunting competition. Chippokes Plantation State Park is one of the oldest continuously farmed plantations in the county dating back to 1619; only twelve years after John Smith landed at the Jamestown Settlement just a handful of miles north of this piece of land.
As you go through the timber, you cannot escape the amount of buck rubs on the small saplings. Every trip to the property deer, ducks, and geese have been spotted. And one particular corner of the property has been absolutely torn up by the turkeys this fall, come spring time the big gobblers will be sounding off from the tall pines they like to roost in along the creek. Running through the property is an underground gas line that cuts through approximately 700 yards across the property. The cut is about fifteen yards wide, making it a perfect shooting lane and ideal for food plots for the wildlife to feed on. Not to mention, there are plenty of big trees that are asking for you to hang a deer stand on.
Call Worth Osgood if you have any questions or if you’d like to schedule a viewing. This is a classic piece of Virginia and one that doesn’t hit the market often, so make your move!
