The area is comprised of 1,129 total acres, with 1,100 huntable acres. Being roughly bisected from east to west by Huston Creek, the area is generally rolling. The area along the south side of the creek is more steeply rolling and forms a bluff. About 100 acres of bottomland are located adjacent to the creek, mostly on the north side of the stream. Some open land is incorporated into a tenant program to improve wildlife habitat and insure abundant, good quality grain foods for game species and other wildlife. The timbered areas are a high quality, mature oak-hickory type.
