Property Description

This listing features 159 +/- acres of prime hunting land near Salt Creek in Russell County, Kansas. This is truly a dream property for the well-rounded hunter. The terrain of the land is so unique and versatile that it offers tremendous hunting opportunities no matter what season it is. Oh and the views from this property are simply breathtaking.  

While taking a tour of the land it was pretty evident that the current landowners are true stewards of the land. This particular property has been well manicured for many decades. They have spent countless hours planting hundreds of trees, establishing food plots, building fence, etc. Rural water, including a frost free hydrant, along with several ponds provide an ampel water source for wildlife. A well established shelterbelt is planted along the entire east side of the canyon creating a tremendous habitat for wildlife. Not only do the cedars provide concealment for a hunter traveling to different stands or blinds but they also make the perfect windbreak for a future house or hunting cabin to be built on the property.

There are 100 acres enrolled in the CRP program through 9-30-21 paying $3,138 annually. The CRP along with all of the cedar trees have created a refuge for pheasants and quail. Additionally, there are nearly 54 acres of thick canyons and a beautiful timbered bottom. These deep canyons are scattered with cedars, plum thickets and cottonwood trees giving those big Kansas whitetails a great place to hide.

At the north end of the property you will see a stunning creek bottom area that is picture perfect deer and turkey hunting property. In the bottom, between Salt Creek and a large block of timber, there is a 5 acre food plot currently planted to triticale. Black walnuts and oak trees have been planted along the edges bordering the food plot. This spot is the ultimate “honey hole” for hunting. It has a history of bringing in trophy deer and turkeys year after year. A large tower box blind is strategically placed overlooking the food plot from the west end. This blind will stay with the property when it sells.

The peaks and high points on this property make amazing vantage points for scouting deer and turkeys all year round. They also provide astonishing panoramic views of Salt Creek and the beautiful valley below. The sellers are believed to own 100% of the mineral rights and they will pass to the buyer at closing. 

This property is located 6.5 miles northeast of Gorham and is 25 minutes from Hays. There are no frontage roads. However, it does have good access located at the end of a well maintained gravel road (179th Street). The gated entrance provides security and peace of mind. If you are looking for a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a tremendous turn-key hunting property in Kansas look no further!
