Description

Very few places in the Western half of the state can matchup to everything this incredible property has to offer. With its breathtaking views, trophy deer and turkey hunting, and near perfect seclusion and peacefulness this property has a little something for everyone. Over the years the owners of this land have put in countless hours of labor planting trees, establishing food plots, and keeping up trails throughout the entire acreage. Multiple pond sites, as well as rural water, provide water for wildlife throughout the property. Well-established rows of cedars, thickets, and a few cottonwoods angle through the property creating additional habitat for wildlife, great entry and exit routes to hunting setups, as well as a perfect windbreak if a house or cabin were to be built on the property. A gravel road provides access to the large and incredibly picturesque bottom on the North end of the property. This bottom is a magnet for deer and turkeys with its nearly 5-acre food plot (currently planted to Fall sorghum blend) and is complemented with a large tower blind and many black walnuts and oak trees that have been planted along the edges. The thousands of trees bordering the food plot to the South provide excellent bedding and travel cover for whitetails along the hillside, as well as perfect roosting trees for turkeys and many great sites for tree stand setups. Around the bend to the East is a deep wooded canyon that is loaded with cedars, cottonwoods, and thickets. This area of the property is a major travel corridor and bedding area for whitetail deer for most of the year. The astonishing view of the property, as well as the surrounding area from the Northeast corner of the property, is absolutely amazing. The peak of the property at this corner provides a perfect vantage point for scouting deer in the bottoms and canyon below and also provides a breathtaking view of the entire creek bottom valley running for miles through this area.  There is no doubt you must visit this property in person to appreciate the wildlife habitat within in borders, as well as the unbelievable views and features it has to offer.
