Tract 1 totals 324 acres more or less and is an absolute top-shelf recreational property for the deer, turkey and quail hunter with a diverse mix of cropland, Native grasses and heavy, mature timber along Sandy Creek that bisects the parcel from north to south. There are two inherent and rare qualities this tract possesses that make it stand out above most hunting properties. One of the most unique qualities that the hunter will find attractive is the abandoned railroad track with a high berm that runs along the entire width of the property near the southern boundary. You couldn’t ask for better screening to make a direct entry to your stands and blinds with minimal exposure. The other very unique attribute is the fact that the property boasts one of the most well-traveled deer corridors in the area that extends southward to Woodson State Fishing Lake and beyond.

You’ll also enjoy additional access along Grouse Rd. that flanks its west side, providing more options for a covert approach. This boundary along Grouse Rd. also features rural water and electric lines nearby, making this an excellent potential location for a cabin or residence that would be away from the main hunting areas to the east. For more information on rural water costs and availability, please contact Woodson County Rural Water District #1 at 620-468-2385.

The acreage breakdown is 18.05 acres of cropland according to FSA records, approximately 75 acres of heavy timber that’s a mix of hardwoods and conifers with the balance consisting of Native and tame grasses, Sandy Creek and the abandoned railroad berm. The soil types within the cropland portions mostly consist of Kenoma Silt Loam and Dennis Silty Clay Loam which are good upland varieties. The grasses within the pasture portions are mostly Native types that include Big Bluestem, Switchgrass and Indian which are highly desirable for both cattle grazing and deer bedding areas. Speaking of co-habitation, there’s ample water on the property in normal precipitation years to supply both livestock and wildlife. There’s one pond in the southeast quadrant, one in the northwest quadrant and Sandy Creek running all the way through the length.

The location is also another great feature with the conveniences of town less than six miles away and easy drives via excellent highways to Kansas City, Wichita, Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Approximate mileages are 105 miles to the KC metro, 94 miles to Wichita, 136 miles to Tulsa and 248 miles to Oklahoma City.

Please give Cameron Roth a call at 785-917-0867 to set up a tour of this rare blend of real estate, the quality of which will be self-evident and obvious once you put your eyes on it. In the meantime, please be sure to peruse the drone pictures and videos to give you a taste of this aesthetic beauty. Ones like this don’t come along every day!
