Tom Jones and Mossy Oak Properties of Eufaula
Today, quality hunting and fishing are major draws for investors looking for land. Eufaula, Alabama is blessed with both. For many years now, Lake Eufaula with its plentiful bass—big bass, spotted bass and largemouth—has been a stop on most tournament-fishing circuits. Even catching big bass hasn’t been a problem for most of the touring pros. There are plenty of bass. Catching a limit never has been too difficult. Crappie fishing is also excellent, and the Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge holds thousands of duck and geese each winter. Barbour County, where Eufaula is located, is one of the first trophy deer counties in the state where bucks have to have at least 3 points on one side of their racks before they can be taken. The opening of dove season in mid-September each year is an annual tradition in the county.
Historically, Barbour and the surrounding counties (Russell, Pike, Bullock, Coffee, Dale, and Henry) have been a hotbed for quail hunters. Union Springs, 40 miles to the northwest of Eufaula, has homed the National Amateur Free-for-All Shooting Dog Championship every February since 1951 on the Maytag Plantation.
Located in the center of this hotbed for outdoorsmen is Mossy Oak Properties of Eufaula, headed up by Tom Jones. “We’re currently showing property as small as 2 acres and as large as 1,000 acres,” Jones says. “The majority of property that we’re selling now is from 10 acres to about 300 acres.” Most of the investors who come to Jones are looking for properties that can provide recreation as well as a return on the timber on the lands. While most of the land that Jones is selling is not on Lake Eufaula, it is within quick and easy driving distance of the lake. “Most of the property around the lake has already been developed with houses,” Jones says.
