156+/- Acres in Rice County, Kansas
Located next to a vast amount of undisturbed prairie with very few roads or houses, this secluded property has it all. Whether you are wanting to build a new home, or just looking for a place to go hunting in the fall, check out what all this diverse place provides. The property has approximately 115 acres of native grass pasture fenced off for grazing cattle. The southern part of this pasture contains 25 acres of expired CRP grass with newer built fence on three sides. It can easily be separated off with a gate and used for rotational grazing, haying, or to plant some large food plots for wildlife. The remaining approximately 41 acres consists of expired CRP grass, a 5-acre farmstead, and 3 acres of timber. An electric well on a programmable timer pumps water for livestock and also flows into a nice one-acre wetland with a water control structure installed. This property sits right in between the thousands of acres of open rangeland surrounding Quivira National Wildlife Refuge to the west, and the irrigated circles and dryland crop fields to the east. This provides the perfect setup for hunting ducks and geese as they travel from the refuge to feed. The mix of trees, shrub thickets, and tall grass provide bedding cover for deer, and the perfect amount of upland wildlife habitat interspersion on just about every acre of the property. While scouting the property, on a quick walk through a few of the sandhill plum thickets on the south end I flushed two pairs of bobwhite quail and jumped up two nice whitetail bucks! The quail population on this place is unbelievably good. The bobwhite calls overlap each other with non-stop whistling. On the west side of the quarter section is an old farmstead with a nice mix of mature shade trees. Electricity is on-site along with a 42x32 utility shed for storing equipment. This would be an excellent place to build a new home with spectacular views of the endless prairie to the west and the always beautiful Kansas sunsets. If you are looking for a nice quiet country getaway or a hunting spot for all types of game, call now so you don't miss out on this one!!
