Imagine owning a piece of Kansas land that offers exceptional hunting experiences while contributing to wildlife conservation and environmental sustainability. This 115 +/- acre property provides a unique investment opportunity for hunters and nature enthusiasts alike. Here’s why this land stands out as the ultimate hunting destination.

Firstly, the property is scheduled to have around 50 acres enrolled in the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP), a voluntary conservation initiative aimed at protecting, restoring, and enhancing wetlands on private lands. This involvement ensures the land will support a diverse array of wildlife, including waterfowl,  and other species that thrive in wetland environments. This not only enhances the ecological value of the property but also ensures it remains a vibrant and sustainable habitat for years to come.

Additionally, the property is ready for the development of two marshes. These wetlands are critical for maintaining biodiversity and providing essential habitats for various species. For hunters, marshes attract waterfowl and other game, making hunting excursions more engaging. The planned marshes will undoubtedly enhance the property’s appeal as a premier hunting ground, where you can enjoy the thrill of the hunt amidst a beautifully restored natural landscape.

The land also includes fertile river bottom tillable land, known for its suitability for cultivation. This area is ideal for growing crops that can serve both agricultural purposes and as a food source for wildlife. The nutrient-rich soil, replenished by periodic flooding from the nearby Little Caney River, offers exceptional opportunities for crop production. This agricultural potential not only provides an additional income stream but also enhances the property's attractiveness as a habitat for game species, particularly deer.

The Little Caney River frontage adds a unique dimension to this property. This scenic river not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also offers recreational activities such as fishing and kayaking. More importantly, river frontage serves as a natural corridor for wildlife, increasing the likelihood of encountering diverse species during your hunting expeditions. The river setting makes a perfect spot for relaxation and wildlife observation.

Surrounding the tributary creek is mature timberland, including oak trees. These mature oaks provide acorns, a critical food source for deer and other wildlife. The timberland also offers excellent cover and nesting areas, contributing to a robust and healthy ecosystem. The diverse habitat created by the combination of mature timber and water sources makes this property a prime location for sustaining a variety of game species. Furthermore the wood lot that lies West of the tributary creek has had TSI work done to it. The owner performed a hinge cut years ago to remove portions of the canopy and create an opportunity for more light to reach the forest floor. This increases bedding opportunities for deer closer to the agriculture. 

The property also presents numerous opportunities for developing large food plots. These plots can be strategically planted with crops designed to attract and support wildlife, particularly deer and turkeys. Well-maintained food plots enhance hunting success by ensuring that game animals have a reliable food source, making the property a hotspot for hunting activities. 

This land boasts a proven history of supporting a healthy deer population. For hunting enthusiasts, this is a critical factor. The documented presence of deer not only promises exciting and rewarding hunting experiences but also speaks to the quality and suitability of the habitat. Whether you are a seasoned hunter or a newcomer, the assurance of a thriving deer population adds immense value to the property. 

Located amidst large parcels of land with heavy timber and extensive agriculture, this property enjoys a strategic position that further enhances its appeal. The surrounding large parcels ensure greater privacy and reduced hunting pressure, creating a more stable and productive environment for wildlife. The mix of agricultural fields and timberland contributes to a diverse and balanced ecosystem, supporting a wide range of game species and offering varied hunting experiences. It is not uncommon to see multiple deer over 160 inches use this farm at different points of the deer season. The proximity to large tracts of land and agriculture allow this area to be attractive to deer in the early season, during the rut, and late in the year when food is scarce. 

Investing in this 115 +/- acre property in Kansas is more than just purchasing land; it’s about securing a legacy of premier hunting and conservation. With its ecological enhancements, fertile tillable land, scenic river frontage, rich timber resources, and proven wildlife history, this property offers an unparalleled opportunity for hunters and nature lovers alike. Don’t miss the chance to own a piece of Kansas’s natural heritage and enjoy the ultimate hunting paradise.

The property is situated 2.5 miles north of Highway 166 on Road 30 in Chautauqua County, Kansas, and lies 2.5 miles west of the Montgomery County line. Exposure to road hunting or trespassing is restricted due to minimal road frontage, confined to the gate entrance. Upon entering the gate, a road runs west atop a berm, then turns south along a tributary creek. Additionally, there is a road that follows the eastern property line, extending all the way to the southern border, providing thorough access to the property's perimeter.
