Enon Plantation is a historic 4,000+/- acre hunting plantation located in the heart of Alabama’s Union Springs Area plantation belt. Unrivaled history and generational stewardship of the land marks Enon Plantation at the top of Alabama’s most treasured properties.
Much of the land was being farmed in this area up until the early 1900’s. It was outdoorsmen of prominent families that started buying up farmland and converting to quail plantations. Early settlers were drawn to the present location of Enon because of the abundance of water and fertile soils, and therefore they assumed the name Enon from the biblical reference to the location where John the Baptist baptized many because there was much water there.
The land has been managed the same way for the last 40+ years. Intense wildlife management and prescribed burning have created what many consider to be the very best quail, deer, turkey hunting in all of Alabama. The whitetail deer and turkey population at Enon is exceptional. The landscape is diverse with breathtaking rolling hills of broom sage beneath mature pine forest, 450+/- acres of meandering ag fields, and mature hardwood bottoms. There are 3 quail courses varying in size, 60 ac, 100 ac, and 280 acres and a large dove field. Very low hunting pressure has kept the game moving during daylight hours and its not uncommon to see 20-40 deer in one afternoon.
Water resources at Enon are incredible with a beautiful 50+/- acre trophy bass lake, where its not uncommon to catch 7-10 lb pound bass. Across the property is another 8-acre lake with excellent fishing including massive 2 lb crappie. Over 3.5 miles of Cox Creek flows through the property providing good water and diverse habitat for wildlife as well as a 5-acre duck impoundment.
The amenities on the plantation are excellent; complete with a true historic 4-bedroom plantation house built in 1840 that has been rewired and replumbed, an updated 6-bedroom Hunter’s Lodge, 2 guest cabins, a manager’s house, horse barn, equipment shops, dog kennels, and much more!
