Property Description: If you were to design the perfect dream hunting ranch in Unit 16 this property is at the top of the wish list. Located just north of Medicine Lodge, Kansas this ranch is arguably the best of the best in Barber County. This part of the state is well known for large size ranches, little hunting pressure, and trophy class whitetails. Aside from cover and tillable fields water is king in this region of the state, and this ranch has an abundance of water. There are 3 ponds and several draws that have natural springs in them. Elm Creek cuts through the northeast portion of the ranch and runs live water for about 1/4 mile. Along Elm Creek you will find thick timber and great cover for all wildlife. The biggest spring fed pond is approximately 4+ acres and is stocked with bass, crappie, and bluegill. In the winter time the ponds will fill up with ducks and geese! The bigger pond is a great roost area for migrating waterfowl.
The bottomland has 100+/- acres of tillable land that is currently planted to feed. This portion of the ranch can be utilized to supply cattle with feed / grazing or make large food plots for the wildlife. This property has several different groups of whitetail using it because of the topography changes, creeks, deep draws, plum thickets, and acreage size. There are currently several fenced in areas where you can feed the deer and turkey away from the cattle and also put in more food plots. You can take your pick on hunting creek bottoms, food plots, deep wooded draws, or even spot and stalk in the more open pasture.
This ranch has excellent fences with 4 separate pastures / cross fences. The current rancher has never had to drill a water well due to the natural springs in the pasture and Elm Creek always having water. The property is set up perfectly to accommodate hunters by being able to rotate the cattle out away from the good bottom land and draws. There are 2 access roads to the ranch one from the west, and the other from the south.
There is a current cattle lease, hunting lease, and oil lease in place. (Further information upon request).
This is an extremely unique opportunity to purchase as this property has been in the family since the early 1900's!
