This property is its own refuge by the refuge holding large numbers of deer with its thick bedding areas, pond, and food plots, the wildlife has no reason to leave. Located 6 miles from Quivira National Wildlife Refuge and 2 miles from the Arkansas River, this property is well positioned to consistently hold lots of wildlife including whitetail, turkeys, ducks, pheasants, & quail. 

The pond located in the center of the property holds water extremely well. An electric water well to help maintain the pond is available but is very rarely ever needed. On dry years the pond is around a 1/2 acre and on wet years it gets 1+ acre in size. Not only does this pond support the large deer herd but it also has ducks at all times of the year. There is a power outlet beside the pond that you can plug in an ice eater to keep open water during the freezing months to help attract even more ducks. The northeast part of the property consists of a large 70+ acre bedding area of plumb thickets, cedar trees, and grasses where the deer can be left alone and undisturbed. There are over 20 acres of established food plots strategically planted on the property along with 4 2000# gravity feeders. These well thought out food sources help keep all the wildlife feeling comfortable on the property without ever needing to leave. Also, with the property comes 3 Hawk Office blinds on 10ft towers that allow you to easily hunt every wind direction. There are mature hardwoods on the south and west parts of the property that allow great tree stand locations including a thick 3-acre plot of timber on the west side.

On the southwest part of the property is a newly built 30X60 Y.E.S. steel building with 900sq ft of living space that includes 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room, full kitchen, and laundry room. The back half of the building is a nice, finished garage area for all your equipment and vehicles or you could very easily add another bedroom or two. The water well for the building is new. The building comes with refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, gas water heater, security system, and a 22kw Generac generator. You can sit comfortably inside and watch the wildlife any day of the week from the comfort of your couch. When you’re at the property it is very rare to ever see or even hear a vehicle all day long but you still have the convenience of the town Sterling just a short 8 miles away if you were to need anything or to restock the fridge. 

This property has everything central Kansas has to offer and then some. You do not want to miss this opportunity at owning your own refuge.
