HUNTING LAND: Barber County, Kansas is located in the highly acclaimed Hunting Unit 16, which has been called one of the best trophy Whitetail deer hunting regions in the lower U.S. The ranch is lays perfectly with a rolling topographical terrain and timbered bottoms which are easily accessible.  There are water points across the ranch which provide water for both livestock and wildlife. The elevation changes from 1,800ft to 1,940ft as you head west across the ranch, which offers good distant viewpoints. This region is well known for Whitetail deer, as well as turkey, quail and pheasant populations.  This ranch represents solid southern Kansas hunting.

CATTLE GRAZING:  The ranch is currently being grazed with another ranch to the north, so it is not fenced on the north side. There is fencing along the other three sides of the property.  Cattle are watered by live water in Turkey Creek as well as ponds on the ranch. The grass appears to be in good condition for the area and the current tenant has managed the grazing accordingly.

AUCTIONEERS NOTE:  This ranch has been in the same family for many years and due to the settlement of the Ellinor L. Bible Estate, it is being offered to the public.  Hunting and cattle ranches of this caliber with “live water” do not often come on the market, so make plans now to tour the ranch and become its new owner.  For an appointment to view the ranch, contact Darrin Addison, land agent at (620) 338-0894.
