Activities & Amenities
This listing features 179 +/- acres of creek bottom and pasture land in Ellsworth County, Kansas. This property has so much to offer, including amazing hunting, excellent cattle grazing, and a beautiful area with scenic views. Another thing that makes this land offering so attractive is the fact that Kanopolis Lake is located only a few miles east of here. This particular piece of land does have some historical significance as well. It was once an integral part of the Sherman Ranch (largest ranch in Kansas at the time, over 40,000 acres) in the early 1900’s. Some of the buildings and structures are still standing on the property.
This is a great recreational and hunting property. While touring the property I noticed a significant amount of deer sign and activity throughout the creek bottom areas. I also observed quite a few ducks sitting on the creek and the pond. I even flushed a couple pheasants from a cluster of plum thickets. There is a substantial amount of cover for wildlife on this property. The aerial map definitely is not an accurate representation of how good the habitat really is. Once you step foot on the property you will be pleasantly surprised. The rolling terrain adds character and makes the property much more diverse. It also provides a great deal of seclusion for the wildlife as most of the creek bottom is not visible from the road. There are plenty of trees located along the creek bottom for the avid hunter to place stands near trails and creek crossings. The larger trees are also very accommodating to the groups of roosting turkeys in the area. Food plots could easily be developed in places along the creek to enhance the property even more. These are great sources of water for livestock and wildlife. The sellers are believed to own 100% of the mineral rights and they will transfer to the buyer at closing. The property is located 35 minutes from Salina and 90 minutes from Wichita.
This one will not last long! It is situated in one of the more desirable areas of central Kansas because of its proximity to Kanopolis Lake. The area is also known for producing some of the best whitetail hunting in the state. If you have any questions or need more information on this property please give me a call today.
