Nestled within the rolling hardwood hills along four miles of the Big Black River in the south Delta near Edwards, Mississippi is a true sportsman’s paradise known as Go Away. For almost 30 years, Go Away has been the 2500± acre private hunting and fishing property of Jackson’s John Palmer, a successful pioneer in the telecommunications industry and a former U.S. Ambassador to Portugal. Mr. Palmer is a devout conservationist of both the land and wildlife and has focused his passions at Go Away entertaining many friends, family, and associates over the years.
Go Away is prominently featured in books and revered not only for being one of the south Mississippi Delta’s best duck hunting properties, but also for being extremely well-managed for deer, turkey, dove, quail hunting and bass fishing. From sandy river bottoms to classic cypress brakes to traversing creeks to rolling savannah hunting fields to thick stands of upland hardwood in the hills, this property has a rich and beautiful diversity of landscape. Go Away also has a stately main lodge, pool and pool house in addition to it’s caretaker’s house, twin Rubico tennis courts, horse stable, dog kennel, and boathouse.
The idea or play on words, at Go Away is that you, as a guest, will never want to “go away” once having experienced the property.
