RUSSELL COUNTY, AL - One of the country’s historic and most desirable hunting properties will be offered at a real estate auction on September 13. Enon and Sehoy Plantations, located in Hurtsboro, Ala., combine for over 25,000 acres of pristine golfing, fishing and hunting land. The two plantations will be offered in a total of 19 tracts or as an entirety by J. P. King Auction Company.
The properties have been used as a luxury getaway for hunters for nearly a century as a private-hunt-only plantation that has attracted affluent outdoor enthusiasts worldwide. Owned by the Dupont family from the 1930s to the 1970s, the family used the property for quail hunting before selling it to Malcom McLean, the inventor of the sea-land container. McLean sold the property in 1990, when current owner Campbell Lanier began restoring the property to its original borders and continued hosting the private hunting groups.
