Located in the northeast part of Kiowa County, Kansas is this large contiguous piece of beautiful rolling sandhills grassland. The tract features an excellent mix of thick native grasses and forbs, along with areas of mature sandhill plum thickets and trees. Kiowa County is well known to upland bird hunters for being a consistent producer of higher populations of pheasants and quail compared to other counties in the state. The habitat in this area is perfect for both deer and upland birds alike. An equal mix of irrigated circles, dryland crop fields, native pasture, CRP grass, and tree rows provide great interspersion and edge habitat. The 5,715 acre Pratt Sandhills Wildlife Area is nearby along with numerous other public hunting areas providing additional hunting opportunities for all types of game. On the northeast quarter, there is a 20-acre grove of trees that would make a great set-up for bowhunting whitetail deer in the fall or calling in turkeys in the spring. Trails have been mowed for easy access to all areas of the property for running trail cameras, filling feeders, and getting into the best hunting locations. The scattered plum thickets provide both bedding for deer, and escape cover for pheasants and quail. Wildlife do not have to travel far to reach food and water sources with irrigated soybean circles directly to the west and a corn circle across the road to the south. The addition of a solar powered well would provide a year-round water source. Electric service is available on the south and west roads for adding a hunting cabin or homesite. 357.31 acres were enrolled in a Conservation Reserve Program contract that expired on 9/30/2022. The property could be hayed or grazed without restrictions, or the new owner could apply for another CRP contract in the future. The current native grass stand is extremely thick. Management practices such as prescribed fire, followed up with strip disking and inter-seeding of alfalfa, and then adding in some sorghum food plots would make it even better for upland birds. Opportunity abounds with this property, and it has had strict trophy deer management over the years with only mature bucks being harvested. The recent trail camera photos and longtime proven big buck history on this piece leaves no doubt that it will be great for hunting trophy Kansas whitetails every single year! Land does not come up for sale very often in this area and it's located in Kansas Deer Management Unit 16. Don't miss out on hunting this tremendous sandhills sanctuary!
