For immediate assistance with this listing call Chase Furlough at 252-505-6893 . Extraordinary Opportunity for Hunters and Outdoor Enthusiasts to own a 25% undivided interest in this 11,600-acre property, known as Mattamuskeet Ventures. Located in scenic Hyde County, North Carolina, near the pristine Lake Mattamuskeet, this property is an outdoor paradise. Bordered by thousands of acres of Federal, State, and Private land the property is protected from outside influence making it a wildlife haven. Call Chase Furlough at 252-505-6893 to schedule a showing today! Mattamuskeet Ventures is one of the most prestigious and exclusive hunting organizations on the east coast. For years world-class black bears and tens of thousands of waterfowl have called this extensive 11,600 acres home. With over 2,400 acres of diked duck impoundments - natural and planted - and the remaining acreage being enrolled in WRP and CRP programs, this farm is an absolute haven for wildlife. Whether you are traveling the extensive 78 mile road system looking for game in the trees or in a stand looking down one of the many senderos, the amount of game seen is unparalleled. From giant black bears to an abundance of whitetail deer, this property is full or large wild game species. When not chasing “big game” you wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity for unrivaled waterfowl hunting. Having the opportunity to harvest over a half dozen species in one sitting is not uncommon. If those hunting styles aren’t enough, chasing the majestic, yet cunning, wild turkeys or trailing a pointing bird dog after coveys of wild quail, will most definitely satisfy the soul! Per the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, Mattamuskeet National Waterfowl Refuge is home to over 200,000 wintering ducks, geese, and swans each year. This property's close proximity to the refuge, coupled by the surrounding 2,000 plus acres of duck impoundments, provides a waterfowl hunting experience that is second to none. With a mixture of natural and planted artificially flooded impoundments you are met with a very extensive and scenic assortment of backdrops to pursue these birds. The Albemarle Peninsula is home to not only the largest but also the highest density of black bears on the planet. Mattamuskeet Ventures is professionally managed for black bears with multiple bears over 550 pounds harvested in 2023 and the average harvest weight being over 500lbs. On any given summer or fall day it's not uncommon to travel the roads and see dozens of some of the world's largest black bears. This property is also home to an abundant whitetail deer population and a thriving population of eastern wild turkeys. While eastern NC doesn’t traditionally grow monster whitetails, there is no shortage of deer. A morning spent on the farm provides the opportunity to see over 150 deer. Eastern wild turkeys are not an anomaly either. When spending just a single day on this property for photos we saw over 80 turkeys! Additionally, the property boasts fantastic small game hunting for rabbits along with a growing wild quail population. Ventures is also a great location for fishing, especially for short-term vacations. Excellent crappie and bass fishing can be found in the canals. Or you can take a boat into the Alligator River to fish the many fresh and saltwater species that call this brackish water home. The banks of Mattamuskeet Lake are nothing to shrug at either with the common perch, bream, and catfish bite. You could also head over to the local NC Wildlife ramp to chase the inshore slam! The lodge would be a great home base! The Hunting Lodge is comfortable and well appointed, located on a picturesque barge canal that leads to the Alligator River. It provides perfect short term accommodations for owners and guests. The lodge features five bunk rooms and a large living or gathering area. Outside of the lodge there are shelters for storage, dog kennels, and a conveniently laid out skinning shed including a walk in cooler. Mattamuskeet Ventures can be accessed from the south by North Lake Road just outside Fairfield or off Highway 264 from the east from Engelhard. Too long of a drive? Right off the highway 264 access there is a small landing strip for small private aircraft. This property is highly monitored and no one should venture into this listing unaccompanied by your representation and the listing agent. Appointments and business information will only be approved to share to pre-qualified and fully vetted buyers.
