Here is the rare opportunity to own a multi faceted farm near the Neosho River. Sitting within a few hundred yards of the river and just south of the famed "island" this farms location is one that can not be beat. The 1/2 mile deed road leads you into the middle of the section and to the property. Old hedge rows and mature warm season grasses provide even more seculsion for the wildlife and make this farm a hub for the deer in the area. The high spot on the farm gives you a commanding view of the CRP grasses and is a rifle hunters dream. As you work towards the north end of the farm brushy draws lead to the oak flats that over look the river bottoms. One look inside the timber and any seasoned deer hunter will know the magic that will be happening here during the rut. Red and white oaks dominate the timber with pockets of cedars for additional cover. The hilltop rolls down into two ravines and some bottom timber ground. One look at the farm from the air will show you just how many beat down trails make this farm the center of activity for the section.
The owner has put in a marsh on the south end of the farm, drainage from multiple terraces and plenty of elevation can fill this marsh quickly. There is also a pond on the upper side of the hill that could be set up as a water source in drier years. This area is in one of the most heavily traveled flyways in Kansas and amount of habitat for waterfowl is improving every year. With this marsh you have the unique opportunity to have duck hunting on the upland ground. The farm also has some of the most unique rock features I have had a chance to see in Southeast Kansas. The large shelves create almost cave like structures in the side of the bluffs over looking the Neosho River bottoms. I can not help but sit under the rocks and think about the history of that spot, the "caves" had to of served as protection for the people who used this area thousands of years ago.
Farms with great deer, duck and turkey hunting are becoming harder and harder to find in Southeast Kansas, especially around the 80 acre mark. Call Kale Kitterman at 620-249-3882 to schedule a private tour of this great tract.
