70 acres Woodlands and Hunting Land in Southport NY Bird Creek Road

Under Contract!

70 acre wooded tract with stream in Southport NY close to Elmira and the PA border.

Located in the Town of Southport just 15 minutes south of the City of Elmira on Bird Creek Road.  This property has road frontage on two roads, Bird Creek and Manchester.  There is a pull-off on Bird Creek Road with plenty of room to park a truck and trailer to unload an ATV.  From the pull-off there is a trail that leads across the creek and up a well cleared switchback trail all the way to the back side of the property.  Bird Creek is a year-round stream that runs parallel with the road.  There is a small waterfall and a few water holes to cool off in the summer and provides a spot for wildlife to access drinking water.

The woods consist of hemlocks, pines, oaks and some hard maple.  The spacing on the trees is generous and the canopy is fairly dense with little undergrowth.  The property hasn’t had the timber cut in over 20 years and there is some mature standing timber.  There is a small locust grove along the Manchester Road area and there is one spot that could be utilized as a home site that power is accessible and topography is gently sloped.

The access trail from Bird Creek Road leads up the hill to a few shelf areas that offer a great spot for tree stands or hunting blinds.  The elevation and natural contours of the land offer some pitch points for whitetail.  This would make a great property for a hinge cut hunting tactic.  When I walked the property I found a few turkey feathers under the large hemlocks which is a good indicator that the birds may be roosting there at night.

Located only a short half mile from the PA border and 15 minutes south of  the Route 17/86 corridor.  There is no gas lease and all the gas and mineral rights convey.

Offered at $79,900.  Contact Brian Jackson 607-280-1058 (text friendly) for more information and to schedule a private showing.
