 General Description:
This is quite possibly the most strategic hunting property I've ever had the opportunity of selling.  The farm is located in Unit 15 on a stretch of the Chikaskia River in southern Sumner County Kansas and is surrounded by productive farms.  Crops in the area generally rotate and this year the property is bordered by corn, milo, wheat, alfalfa, beans and cotton.  The deer don't eat the cotton but they will bed in the rows. If you want to dial in on travel corridors and make the most of your time in the field than there is no better place than this one.  The deer predominantly move through the cover offered along the river which is made up of giant cottonwoods, hedge and hardwoods as well as a variety of native grasses and thickets.  Worn down trails are everywhere, leading from cover to the surrounding feed fields.  When the rut is on, bucks start chasing up and down the river and you better stay alert because this area holds a tremendous volume of quality Kansas whitetails.  As we all know, those trail cams don't always capture the biggest bruisers out there and new bucks will filter through cruising the river looking for does.  The deer take the cake on this property but there are also turkeys, pheasant, quail, doves, ducks and geese.  I've been told, the waterfowl descend on this place during the late winter when all the surrounding water is locked up with ice.  Primarily the ducks pour into open water afforded by sharp bend in the river and they nearly blackout the sun when all conditions are right.  

As a kid I grew up in nearby Wichita and some of my earliest camping trips were on a similar stretch of the Chikaskia.  We spent all night spotlighting bull frogs and shoving crawdad baited cane poles into the bank of the river in hopes of catching some Channel Cats.  I point this out because I believe this is an all-around hunting and recreational property.

Regardless of your game preference, there is no question that the hunting on this farm is off the chart.  If you have a limited schedule but love to bow hunt, this place will cure that problem by forcing the deer to move where you want them.

Last but not least, there is a very comfortable house in a nearby community and included with the house are all appliances and furniture.  This conveniently located amenity makes it a little bit easier to get up at dark-thirty to climb into a sub-freezing tree stand in hopes of an encounter with Billy Big Buck!

 The price is firm.
