Quotes:
“Fox Creek Plantation may well be the finest Southern hunting and fishing property we’ve ever stepped foot on, which is why we at Tecomate Properties invested our time, energy and resources to develop it into the South’s premier Tecomate Signature Property.” David Morris & Mark Newell, Tecomate Biologists
“Back in my Burnt Pine Plantation years, I consulted with hunting properties throughout the South. I quickly learned the SW GA “Plantation Belt” was truly unique, with hunting and a hunting culture like none other. No wonder sportsmen worldwide are drawn to the Plantation Belt for its world-class quail, deer, turkey and dove hunting...and let’s not forget big bass fishing!” David Morris
“Fox Creek Plantation is one of the finest, most diverse all-around hunting plantations and turnkey properties in the SW GA “Plantation Belt.” Fertile soils, well-managed open pine woodlands, mast-producing hardwood bottoms, well-distributed ag fields, gorgeous lakes and super abundant wildlife make this property an outdoor enthusiast’s heaven. And, David Morris and Mark Newell with Tecomate Properties have elevated Fox Creek to the next level with their management expertise.” Walter Hatchett, Jon Kohler & Associates LLC
“I’ve hunted and consulted on great properties throughout the South for 20 years and have learned to quickly assess a property. I knew in minutes that Fox Creek Plantation was something special. To have a property able to support one major game species at a high level is an awesome thing. But Fox Creek has it all – world-class quail hunting, huge bucks, doves galore, ducks aplenty and turkeys everywhere…plus amazing lakes! This place is without question one of the best pieces of ground I’ve ever worked on.” Mark Newell, Tecomate Wildlife Biologist


Narrative:
“Day one on Fox Creek Plantation I knew I was looking at one of the finest wildlife properties in the South, bar none! I could not imagine a better place to ply the Tecomate Management System to create a premier Tecomate Signature Property!” David Morris
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 Georgia goes 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 superb 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 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, and 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 big at 15 acres, but big, 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 excellent duck hunting.
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 renovated 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.
Fox Creek is in good company – other nearby well-known Plantations include Senah, Mossy Dell, Chokee, Wilmar and Pretty Pond. Unlike many renowned Plantations in SW GA, Fox Creek was fortunate to escape damage from Hurricane Michael. Nearby towns are Albany (35 min.), Americus (20 min.) and Leesburg (15 min.); majors cities are Atlanta (2.6 hrs.) and Macon (1.5 hrs.)
