McPherson County 150
Located just 7.5 miles West of McPherson, lies this multi use 150+/-acres. Perfect for recreational use, farming, ranching, or investment, it offers something for everyone.
In the heart of the property, you will find 50+/-acres of internally fenced pasture that has been used for grazing in the past. The pasture has not had any grazing on it in recent months and is currently very thick. Consisting of both tame and native grass, as well as native forbs and legumes, the property offers excellent native browse as well as thick bedding cover.
Through this area, you will also find the wet weather creek that runs through the property from west to east. Providing a natural travel corridor for wildlife as well as a potential water source for stock or wildlife. A large part of the East end of the creek has been dug out to make the creek wider and deeper, providing a year round water source similar to a pond. With areas reported by the seller to be 18' deep, this area should be able to withstand even the longest of droughts. In addition to a watering source, this area also provides excellent waterfowl hunting opportunities. Located in an area of the State that is known to attract and hold a large migration throughout the season, the property will offer great dry field hunting on the tillable portion, as well as water hunting on the creek and multiple wet weather sloughs. Many of the wet weather sloughs that dot the property could also be enhanced with a flood gate system to further enhance the waterfowl hunting opportunities.
However, the highlight of the property in my opinion is the approximately 5+/-acre hidden tillable field that is tucked in on the South side of the 6+/-acre shelter belt. The shelter belt starts on the East end of the property and runs to the West for approximately 650 yards. Consisting of Red Cedar, Elm, Black Lotus, Hedge, and other soft woods, the shelter belt is extremely thick providing additional bedding, multiple tree stand locations, as well as providing security cover that completely blocks the view of the small tillable field from the road. Leaving the standing crop in this small hidden field, or turning some of this area into a year round food source would only enhance the wildlife opportunities.
Besides for offering exceptional recreational opportunities, the property is going to provide excellent ROI with approximately 90 acres tillable that has recently produced an average of 85-90 bushel of milo and 55-60 bushel of wheat. The center pasture section could also be leased out for summer grazing should the new owner choose to do so, or leave the stock off and let this area continue to grow in order to increase the bedding cover and the recreational value of the property.
The remaining acreage is made up of grass waterways, while the waterway in the Southeast corner of the property also has some pocketed timber that will also attract wildlife.
The property is fully fenced with the perimeter fencing being in excellent condition, as well as multiple new pipe gates allowing access to the property in multiple locations. The property also has internal fencing that separates the pasture area, with it being in average condition.
An internal road system allows access to the entire property via vehicle, with a large amount of work having been done to provide for a creek crossing. All mineral, oil and gas rights will transfer with no leases or wells. To schedule a private showing, or for any questions, contact Land Specialist Jake Kolb at 620-252-5881 or email@example.com.
