Property Description: -The Serpent Ranch Tract 1- Tract 1 of the Serpent Ranch consists of 230 +/- acres. The 230 +/- acres consists of approximately 185 acres of pasture and 45 acres of tillable ground. Other than the mark left on the property by the Quiveran Indians, the Serpent Ranch offers everything from tillable acres and a pasture full of thick grass, multiple water sources, great cover and tight fences. If you enjoy hunting or conservation you could keep yourself busy on this property. Many different species of wildlife call the Serpent Ranch home from whitetail deer to upland birds such as pheasants and quail and even ducks and geese during the migration months of the Central Flyway.  

Where Does The Name "Serpent Ranch" Come From: In the pasture portion of tract 1 lies a mark left behind by the Quiveran Indians.The Serpent Intaglio was dug by the Quiveran Indians sometime around 1200-1300 A.D. It is approximately 160 ft. long and varies in width from 4 ft. to 10 ft. it is in the shape of a moving snake, or serpent. The Quiveran Indians used symbols as their written language, and to the Quiveran Indians the snake meant water, protection, and new life with the shedding of the skin. The Serpent Intaglio points head first towards a line of three well known Quiveran Village sites north of the Serpent Ranch. These Quiveran Village sites were estimated to of been home to potentially tens of thousands of Plains Indians.

Tillable: The tillable consists of 45 +/- acres in two seperate fields in the south east corner of tract 1. All of the tillable acres will be maintained and kept clean until the day of the sale for the new buyer to be able to put a fall crop in. There is no long term written lease with the current tenant. Current tenant plans to maintain the tillable acres until the day of the sale. Immediate possesion of the tillable acres will be given to the new owner.

Pasture: Inside tract 1 there is 185 +/- acres of pasture. The pasture consists of great cover, multiple water sources, thick grass and tight fences. For the cattle producer this 185 acres gives you the opportunity to expand your current program. Immediate possesion of the pasture will be given to the new owner. 

For The Deer Hunter: Between the thick grass and heavy cover along with water and food sources on all sides the Serpent Ranch has everything the avid deer hunter would need. Adding feeders or food plots to the property along with a few well placed stands the new buyer would be heading in the right direction towards putting together a solid whitetail farm. 

For The Upland Hunter: At first glance it will be easy for you to see how the Serpent Ranch contains all of the key factors needed by pheasants and quail to thrive. Between the thick grass and brush piles as well as small groves of trees the upland hunter could keep himself and his dogs busy for quite some time. 

For The Waterfowl Hunter: During the migration months of the Central Flyway Kansas remains to be one of the hottest spots in the country. This property contains a spring and two ponds as well as a creek that feeds off of a vast watershed to the north. Between the nearby roosts and surrounding crop fields expect to have a chance at harvesting most of the major species the Central Flyway has to offer. 

Mineral Rights: What mineral rights the seller owns shall transfer. Seller is believed to have a 50% share of minerals.
