High-quality whitetails, turkeys, and quail all inhabit this half section in southwest Reno County, Kansas. Running north and south, the land contains 301 acres of hunting, grazing, and income opportunities!
Access to the north half of the property is simple, dropping south off of Highway 61 and traveling half a mile on dirt road puts you at the northwest corner. Lerado Road, bordering the west side of the property, has a bridge that is out creating three mile-sections of land with no thru roads! Accessing the south half of the property requires a quick jog around the mile-section. With that said, traffic near the tract is low but you still have good access to get into and out of the property.
There are 112.75 acres of clean native grass enrolled in CRP, paying out $6,970 annually. The contract is set to expire in 2031 and the owners are currently on an 80/20 split with an operator who manages the land. Surrounding the area enrolled in CRP are pockets and strips of timber that create habitat diversity. The northern third of the land has Silver Creek running from the west boundary to the east boundary. Even during this year's drought, Silver Creek held plenty of water for wildlife. This area has traditionally been used for summer grazing cattle. With a year or two of rest the pasture would be allowed to recover, and the wildlife value would go up tremendously! Along the west side of the property is a band of young, scrub timber that was treated during the summer of 2022 to remove undesirable species. Many of the mature trees will continue to grow while new growth of forbs and grasses can be expected. This entire area is already a thicket but with a couple of growing seasons under its belt, you will have the most dense and desirable bedding area in the neighborhood!
A quick glance at the satellite imagery and one can see that the entire neighborhood holds a huge amount of wildlife habitat and is prime for all species of wildlife. Big, mature white-tailed deer are no exception. Through a quick survey of the land with a handful of trail cameras, we found a good age structure of bucks, solid genetics, and a healthy density of deer. Turkeys have also been observed, as well as coveys of bobwhite quail. With neighboring landowners focused on managing for older age-class bucks, any serious hunter will find satisfaction in hunting this property season after season. By allowing the pasture to recover and adding some quality food sources, a savvy land manager could create a wildlife mecca out of this property!
