Located between the Arkansas River and Ninnescah River drainages in west-central Reno County, this 58 acre tract sits just one mile from Highway 50 making for fantastic access. Savvy deer hunters will take note that this location is known for producing great genetics and old age-structure whitetail bucks. Food, cover, water, and security can all be found on the land. Not only does this tract offer some of the best bedding cover around, it also lies in the middle of a great neighborhood for wildlife habitat. This orientation concentrates movement through the property as bucks travel during the rut. If you are looking for a reliable, small acreage hunting tract within an hour of Wichita then here is your opportunity!
Although small in relation to other premier whitetail properties, this tract is mighty and packs a serious punch! This is the spot within the spot. Take a gander at the bucks that roamed this property last fall and winter, and there is no doubt you will have an opportunity at harvesting a mature buck near or above Boone and Crockett! As a bonus, there is a thriving population of bobwhite quail and pheasants that inhabit the thick native grasses all over the land. A covey of nearly 15 first-hatch quail chicks was flushed at the end of July in one of the food plots.
The pockets of cottonwood and willow trees create shaded bedding areas and travel corridors for deer and other critters to move throughout the property. The mature trees also offer plenty of locations for hanging tree stands. Three food plots have been strategically established on the tract to create easier hunting and supplemental food sources for deer before they head out to the larger agricultural fields surrounding the property. Common crops found bordering the property often include soybeans, winter wheat, milo, and forage sorghum. There is also a small watering hole on the southern side of the property that adds attraction and a necessary resource for a turn-key hunting property. The remaining acreage is composed of thick, warm-season native grasses like Big Bluestem, Switchgrass, Indiangrass, Little Bluestem, and other native forbs like Ragweed, Pokeweed, Wild Lettuce, and Sunflower providing optimum bedding and browse on the broadleaf species. It is with no surprise that many deer and other wildlife utilize this big bedding area in the fall and winter so that they are in close proximity to the nearby crop fields. A map illustrating hunting locations and habitat improvements can be found in the images section to show the layout and future possibilities for the land. The property is located in Deer Management Unit 5. Trail cameras are currently running on the property and wildlife pictures will be updated as they become available.
This property has many possibilities and already harbors a healthy population of huntable game birds and trophy whitetail deer. With continued management, this small but mighty hunting property will only get better!
