With nearly one mile of South Platte River frontage, this farm has endless opportunities for hunting. The farm sits in unit 96 and qualifies for two landowner buck deer tags. This stretch of the river produces trophy quality deer every year. The Whitetail deer hunting is some of the best in the state. Having food, cover, and water is essential to growing and holding trophy deer. This property has all three. Turkey hunting on the property is world class with plenty of roost trees along the river. The waterfowl hunting around Merino, Colorado is well sought after because of its great migration and holding of ducks and geese along the river. Birds routinely feed in the surrounding agriculture fields located up and down the river. The farm is located between two major reservoirs, North Sterling and Prewitt Reservoirs, which migrating ducks and geese take refuge on during their journey South.
