Property Description: You rarely see a farm of this caliber and genetic makeup where mule deer and whitetail can both flourish. This farm has a great mix of deep bluffs and canyons with open pasture for the mule deer, and thick timber / creek bottom ideal for whitetail. On the topic of genetics this property is a big buck producer and holds multiple record book mule deer. The previous owner harvested the Kansas state nontypical mule deer record at 269 0/8", and the #10 non typical mule deer record at 222 6/8" (State record buck was believed to live on this farm but was shot on adjoining property). The current owner has multiple mule deer in the 180-200" range, and has harvested several whitetail in the 150-190" range. Lane County is primarily tillable farmland and pasture which makes this farm even more unique with the bluffs, canyons, springs, alfalfa fields, and tree cover. Aside from the deer hunting the turkey hunting is great as well. The spring fed creek and alfalfa fields are another big key to why this farm holds lots of wildlife year round.
Secluded 1/4 mile off the main road lies an immaculate 6,300 sq ft ranch style home. The house was recently remodeled and the current owner didn't skimp on any detail! The new addition has a large trophy room, master suite, weight room, large walk in closet, custom bathroom, wrap around porch, and much more custom work. There are 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and a full basement to the home. The home features hardwood floors, custom doors, large stone fireplace, a game room, and many other upgrades. This set up is ideal for a corporate retreat. Business professionals who enjoy the outdoors can experience a gated entry, a private drive entering the property, home and bunk house to host large groups, and some of the best hunting western Kansas has to offer.
This is a rare opportunity to own a unique trophy mule deer and trophy whitetail hunting farm! To schedule a showing call Ryan Koelsch at 620-546-3746
