Hixstown Hammock is a 384± acre recreation and timber property conveniently located just ten minutes west of the historic town of Madison, among the hunting plantations and ranches that Madison County is know for. Aside from minor hunting, this property has been set aside and remained untouched as a natural area by the family. It s one of the most unique recreational, timber and Social Storm Properties under $750,000 in Florida.It s Old Florida to say the least with this area known most notably as being settled by the influential Miccosukee Chief John Hicks back when it was owned by Spain in 1818. Prior to that it was well used part of the Timicuan nation that stretched from the Aucilla River to modern day Jacksonville. In fact, when the first Spanish Explorers came to this area they were astonished by the agricultural prosperity, native population and wild game here. Going back even further those that lived on this property prior to the Mississippian Period hunted Mastadon, Mammoths and saber-tooth tigers. There has always been great wild game, great natural beauty and this has always been a very special place.Fast forward to 2020 and one will find one of the best modern-day examples of what untouched natural timber looks like. It appears the timber hasn t been thinned in a generation and 100+ year old pines worth $500± to the landowner abound. We specialize in this niche and see the best of the best and even we rarely see timber of this magnitude, both pine and cypress. Almost unbelievably, some of the natural pine timber appears too large for most regional sawmills, given that there are few tracts with wood of this size left in Florida. There are niche mills that aggressively seek out this rare quality of Southern Yellow Pine of this size and age class if one chose to harvest these select trees. There is currently no conservation easement or Carbon Credit contract or other restrictions on this unique property.It s all about the habitat and ecotones. This property is absolutely loaded with deer, turkey, squirrel and wood ducks. We will admit that the unusually massive timber canopy allows little sunlight to hit the forest floor and thus native ground cover and high-quality browse is a limiting factor currently prohibiting more intensive deer and turkey management. That being said, the property lies on the northern edge of the 23,000 acre Hixstown Swamp complex which is one of the most significant wetland ecosystems in Florida. Almost more strategically to the east it borders one of the most respected and intensely managed low fenced deer properties in North Florida. To the north lies the famed ranches, farms and hunting lands of Elizabeth Simms Road. This property has had an almost limitless game flow going back thousands of years. Today, a very impressive cadre of roads connect various habitat components and allow for very good hunter access. With just a little modern habitat work we think this property could easily be one of the best hunting properties in Florida under 500 acres.Social Storm Properties: Hixtown Hammocks and it's Social Storm Property Attributes are Highly Ranked. This is exactly the type of property and place one wants to own and retreat to if world events continue on their current path. What makes a Social Storm Property so unique?Several very good open water wood duck holes throughout the cypress stands. Hixstown Swamp itself is on a major migratory waterfowl flight pattern. Enormous populations of many types of waterfowl, cranes and wading birds fly over and use this property.It is located just 10 minutes to historic downtown Madison and less than 8 miles to I-10. Additional restaurants and services are conveniently found in Monticello (24 minutes), Valdosta (44 minutes) and a Tallahassee or Thomasville (50 minutes). Also located 40 minutes from the soon-to-open Publix in Live Oak. Almost unbelievably 90% of the adjacent property owners own over 900 acres! The largest, over 4,000 acres and is one of the top managed bow-hunting properties in all of Florida. One isn t going to find another property priced under $1M situated like this. -Jon Kohler
