BUCHANAN  SHOALS

(AN EXCLUSIVE SPORTSMAN’S PRESERVE)

 

WADESBORO, NORTH CAROLINA

 

 

“EXTENSIVE” IS JUST ONE WAY TO DESCRIBE THE PRESERVE

            Buchanan Shoals occupies 5,300 acres in southern Anson and Richmond Counties, NC as well as Chesterfield County, SC.  The property is located on the Great Pee Dee River, with over 7 miles of frontage on the river. 

            The preserve is a collage of pine uplands, young pine plantations, upland hardwood glades, bottomland hardwood forests, and open broom straw fields.  These distinctive habitat conditions offer hunting for all major wildlife species in the South including:  waterfowl, trophy whitetail deer, turkey, quail, and dove.

            Think about it:  With 5,300 acres of land, guided hunts for all major wildlife species, a shooting preserve for quail and pheasants, skeet and target shooting ranges, freshwater fishing, hiking, camping ATV riding, and other recreational activities available at your convenience, what more could a sportsman ask for?

 

BUCHANAN SHOALS OFFERS THE SPORTSMAN FULL GUIDE SERVICES

            Buchanan Shoals offers full guide services for all hunting and outdoor activities taking place on our preserve. Whether you would like to sit back in a hunt-buggy and watch us work our dogs for an afternoon of quail hunting, or you would like a one-on-one morning of turkey hunting in bottomland hardwoods, our hard working staff is always there to meet your needs.

 

SPECIAL HUNTS

            In the fall of 2005, Buchanan Shoals opened its doors to the public for preserve quail hunting. These hunts will be allowed only on a limited basis, and all hunts must be booked in advance. Since Buchanan Shoals is a private preserve, when you arrive as our guest it is like having your own private quail plantation.  Be sure to check our website at www.buchananshoals.com/show/news_and_events/  to see our schedule of hunting seasons, special hunts and events.

OUR FACILITIES ARE SECOND TO NONE!           

            Facilities are available for members to store such things as ATV's, boats, climbing stands and camping equipment. Buchanan Shoals also has a full service kennel available to members who wish to keep their dogs on site. Whether you are passionate about "plantation style" hunting under standing timber, or you prefer open areas with an incredible view, Buchanan Shoals has it all!

A “SOUTHERN TRADITION” IN THE MAKING

            “Having opened Buchanan Shoals only a few years ago, it is hard to call it a Southern tradition just yet.  To me, traditions involve occasions that remain the same over time and are long standing in nature.  But all traditions, no matter how old, had their origin somewhere.  If you are like me, you grew up doing just about anything in the outdoors, and the most cherished memories I have involve spending time with my family and friends while hunting and fishing.  I can only hope that as the years go by, and tales of good hunts and great experiences are told, that we are creating a tradition of our own.”  (Statement by Jason Kiker, Owner / Principal Operator)

 

Buchanan Shoals is designed for special clientele who enjoy all the amenities and services associated with a premier hunting preserve while allowing year-round access to its members.
