Some of the best whitetail hunting habitat in the state of Kansas is located along the Smoky Hill River in the central and western parts of the state. The river and the surrounding terrain provide tremendous habitat for very high populations of whitetail deer, turkey, and upland birds. This specific hunting property is situated in a prime location with the Smoky Hill River flowing within ¼ mile of both the southern and eastern boundaries. This area has some of the most wooded and rugged stretches of the Smoky Hill River in all of Central KS, with very high whitetail deer numbers and top-notch trophy buck quality! A spring-fed waterway runs for nearly a full mile through the property, creating excellent wildlife habitat along its way. Several large cottonwoods, elms, locusts, and cedars are scattered throughout the property, providing prime hunting habitat. Over 130 acres were in cropland at one time and can be converted back to crop ground if the new owner wishes. These acres consist of excellent silt loam soils. There is power available at the main road on the west side. The access road is fully paved and easy to travel in all weather conditions. With good access from a blacktop road and power readily available, this property has great potential for a country home/lodge building site within 30 miles of Hays, KS. 100% of the mineral rights are intact and will transfer to the buyer upon closing as well!

Whether you are solely looking for a terrific hunting property, a great place to build, acreage to convert to excellent cropland or want a farm that can provide all of the above, this property is an excellent option to check all these boxes.
