Located in Southeastern Bourbon County, KS lies this 158 acre recreational gem full of endless possibilities. This farm grabs your attention as soon as you enter the gate. It doesn't take a lot of whitetail knowledge to realize this property has it all. Everything from elevation and terrain changes to endless food plot opportunities. Don't let the term recreational listing full you. The class 2 and 3 soils throughout the property allows for the possibility to potentially add some tillable acreage to the farm of your dreams.

With its location on State HWY 39 and just about 5 miles west of HWY 169, access to this property will be quick easy. Located just 1 hour and 30 minutes from Kansas City, KS, 2 hours from Tulsa, OK, and 2 hours and 30 minutes from Wichita, KS this farm is close enough to the big city with all the comforts of the country. It sits only 15 minutes from Ft. Scott, KS, which has all the amenities of town close by including, groceries, school, and a hospital.

In Kansas, the whitetail rules the roost. Bourbon County has long been no different. Known for its giant whitetails, this property should have no different expectations. While walking the farm, the amount of giant rubs and scrapes throughout the property were quite amazing. The field edges had scrapes every 20 yards and the timbered bottoms were full of rubs along the travel corridors. This 160 acres has everything a big buck hunter could possibly look for. From thick and nasty cedar and briar thickets, timbered bottoms, open fields for food plots or agricultural acreage and great funnels and pinch points for all the stand to kill the buck of your dreams. 

Don't let the great deer hunting distract you from all the other recreational possibilities this farm provides. The feeding locations still scattered throughout the property allowed me to not only see all the deer sign throughout but also the turkey sign. Anywhere there were openings and bare dirt on the ground, there were turkey scratches and tracks. The thick grasses and briar patches also hold an endless amount of rabbits. I also jumped up a big covey of quail in the thickets on southeast side of the farm. 

With approximately 40 acres of open fields currently in cool season grasses, investment opportunities are abundant. With class 2 and 3 soils throughout, the chances definitely exist to turn theses cool season grasses into a tillable income. If that's not for you, hay income and a possible cattle lease could also provide year round income.

So if you are looking for that recreational farm of your dreams or just a chance to build a great investment opportunity, this property will go fast. If you would like to set up your own personal tour contact Brian (620)212-2027 today!
