Greene County hunting property sells at auction for over $1.7 million

LIVINGSTON, AL – After an auction that lasted almost two hours, Birmingham attorney Ted Taylor emerged as the high bidder Saturday for Boligee Creek Plantation, a 687-acre hunting property near Livingston, in Greene County.

Taylor, who owns an adjacent stretch of property, entered the final bid of $1,794,787 for the property in an auction managed by J.P. King Auction Company, Gadsden, Ala. The final sale price came to just over $2,612 per acre, according to Craig King, president of J.P. King.

The auction attracted 19 registered bidders from Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia. In all, more than 100 people crowded into Diamond Jim’s and Mrs. Donna’s Restaurant in Livingston for the auction.

“There’s a lot of demand for hunting land throughout the Southeast right now, and that drew a strong field of bidders,” said King. He said the buyer intends to use the land as a hunting and recreational property. “This is beautiful land with frontage on the Tombigbee River and Boligee Creek, and it has had good production of deer, turkey and duck,” said King.

“When you use a property for hunting, the use of surrounding property can have a big impact on the game populations. By purchasing this property, Mr. Taylor can manage all of the property for the best possible production of deer and other game,” said King.

King said the strong demand for hunting properties has led his company to place more emphasis on rural land. The company recently announced plans to auction Brushy Creek Hunting Retreat, a 5,340-acre property in southeastern Texas owned by retired U.S. Rep. Jack Fields (R-Texas).
