REDUCED! 171 +/- Acre Bear Sanctuary For Sale in Tyrrell County NC!

Surrounded by the Palmetto Peartree Preserve - Creek Access - Road Frontage This 171+/- acre property was formerly known as Bearsong, given by a woman named Kay Grayson, architect of the legend of the Bear Lady. Kay molded this property into an area where the regional bears would flock for sanctuary. If you are interested in more information about Kay Grayson and her work with Black Bears, email the listing agent, for a copy of a national publication about her story. This property is exactly what you are looking for if you are interested in owning a piece of history, access to unprecedented big game, creek frontage and a canal that connects to that body of water that is loaded with white perch and waterfowl. The previous owner dug a dike on the western boundary that extends from highway 64, north, touching the Alligator Creek. This canal would be perfect for docking a small boat, allowing easy access to surrounding bodies of water. Even though the majority of the property is Wetlands, it borders the Palmetto-Peartree Preserve, which means that you will be pulling bear and deer from the thousands of acres of protected forests that border the southeastern edge of the property. Tyrrell County ranked number three in the state in total bear harvests based on the 2017 Annual Bear Harvest Report. The top three counties for harvesting bear based on this report are Hyde, Beaufort and Tyrrell, all within 60 miles of each other. Tyrrell County also rests along the Atlantic Flyway which is a migratory waterfowl passage from the arctic tundra of Baffin Island, Canada, all the way down to the Caribbean. The reason this property is ideal for migratory birds is because the Great Shoal rests about two miles from the property, boasting five hundred acres of ankle to waist deep water that is covered in natural grasses. At any point during the winter months you can take a short boat ride out to see thousands of ducks and swan gorging on this shoal.
