Sharing a common boundary with the 68,000-acre St. Marks Wildlife Refuge, the 168-acre Otter Creek tract will appeal to those who covet a recreational / hunting property with an “Old Florida” feel. A mosaic of live oaks, palmettos, merchantable pines, and hardwood hammocks create a diverse and attractive landscape that supports a wide-ranging wildlife population. Two small ponds are a nice property feature that provide an important water source.
Otter Creek is located four miles east of the historic town of Sopchoppy (Wakulla County) in an area residents refer to as “Buckhorn”. Local lore has it that this name derives from the reputation it developed over many years for possessing the best deer hunting in Wakulla County. So, it’s no surprise that whitetail deer are abundant along with wild turkeys – make sure to check out the photos below. If you’re not a hunter, the property lends itself just as well for wildlife viewing or as a personal retreat.
Aside from the property’s inherent qualities, Otter Creek enjoys proximity to Tallahassee and its many amenities – all a short 45-minute drive away. Perhaps the bigger draw, however, is the easy access to an abundance of nature-based sites and outdoor activities which bring significant benefits to the landowner.
Harvested buck photo was taken on a nearby property although it was photographed many times on Otter Creek. All other game photos were taken on either Otter Creek or owner’s other property, Sopchoppy Preserve, located one-half mile away.
