Equity ownership purchase. Big Island Land & Timber is a large club consisting of over 7,100 acres located in the Saline River Bottoms that offers deer, duck, and turkey hunting along with year-round enjoyment of the Saline River. The property consists of two large tracts south and southwest of Sheridan, in Grant County. The great thing is that it's only 45 minutes from downtown Little Rock meaning that anyone in Central Arkansas can place their resources in the purchase of the land without having to allocate a large sum of money in a cabin. Further, there are opportunities over time for a member to purchase additional memberships which grows the footprint that individual can hunt while also reducing the total number of members in the club. There are people in place that prepare all of the food plot areas leaving broadcasting seed and dragging it in as the only real prep work an owner has to worry about. For many, this is a critical component so that tractor and implement purchases are of no concern. Aside from the financial savings of not having to own a tractor/implements, we're all short on time these days so only spending one day in prep for hunting season is huge bonus. From an investment standpoint, these shares have increased in sales price over time and any future timber harvest will yield owners a paid dividend with the only caveat being the club choosing to purchase additional acreage with said capital. Many years this tract will be dry in the Fall and lend itself perfectly to a good deer season, followed by later flooding of the Saline River which provides true flooded timber duck hunting. Higher portions of the tracts provide the room you need to roam chasing gobblers in the Spring. The ownership provides one box stand location (stand included) for rifle deer with archery deer, duck, and turkey being more flexible on the owner roaming other portions of the property. Annual dues are $900 which have been paid for the 2023-2024 hunting season. For more information on this excellent, low input ownership contact Kevin Keen at (870)215-1185.
