Located in the famed Albany “Plantation Belt” just 23 miles northeast of Albany in highly desirable Lee County, Fox Creek Plantation’s reputation as one of the finest quail hunting properties in South Georgiagoes back over 100 years and continues so today. Along with its famed quail hunting, Fox Creek also has some of the best turkey, dove, duck and deer hunting in the South, plus big lakes with world-class bass fishing potential. The Plantation really has it all – well-managed woodlands, fertile Tifton soils (some of South’s best), over 70% uplands,10% in ag land, big lakes, perfectly suited facilities, great neighbors and off-the-chart aesthetics. No matter the passion, this large, diverse Plantation offers the “Best of the South” and is truly a Sportsman’s Dream.
Lee County is the “No. 1 Trophy Buck County in Georgia,” partly attributable to great genetics from the stocking of big northern deer back in the 1950s. Fox Creek has a long history of producing big bucks, but now, under the Tecomate Management System, the sky’s the limit! Combine Fox Creek’s great genetics and incredibly productive native habitat with the huge nutritional boast provided by 225+/- acres of targeted ag fields and high-protein Tecomate food plots, Fox Creek is destined to become a trophy deer mecca, capable of growing more and bigger bucks than ever thought possible.
Fox Creek Plantation is very well-watered by numerous hammock ponds, small streams, over 2 miles of Fox Creek and 2 large lakes. The Lodge Lake, located just behind the lodge, is 15 acres, and beautiful Fox Creek Lake is a whopping 75 acres, one of the largest private lakes in the area and a centerpiece of the Plantation. The lakes and many small ponds attract lots of ducks in the fall and winter, providing some of the best duck hunting in Georgia.
The classic Southern lodge has just the right “feel” for the Plantation and is laid out for comfort and entertainment. A large living room with vaulted ceiling and hardwood floors adjoins a spacious dining room and recently upgraded kitchen. Four bedrooms (total of 8 beds), 4½ baths, a large mud/gunroom and a stone back patio overlooking the 15-acre Lodge Lake and a separate guest cottage with 2 beds and bath provide ample accommodations for groups or family and friends. On the north shore of the 75-acre lake, a charming restored sharecropper’s cottage with a large screened-in porch offers incredible lake and sunset views and a relaxing place to enjoy picnics and sundowners. Additionally, Fox Creek has everything needed for operations – 12-run kennel, 6-stall stable, manager’s house, tenant’s house, barn and equipment shed/enclosed shop PLUS an array of necessary farm equipment and tools, nearly all of which conveys.
