Prime Whitetail Hunting Along The Walnut Creek In Central Kansas


It’s very hard to acquire a property with nearly ¾ mile of prime creek bottom in this part of the state. The Walnut Creek is a sought after tributary that flows from Western Kansas ending up in the famous Cheyenne Bottoms wetland area and also branching to the Arkansas River. This tract offers some of the best whitetail deer hunting in the area, several bends and turns throughout the creek bottom make for top-notch bedding and seclusion for the wildlife. Rio Grande Turkeys are also abundant on the property with lots of mature timber perfect for roosting gobblers during the spring Kansas season. With Cheyenne Bottoms only being a short 8-mile jog down the creek bottom this property will also hold waterfowl seasonally. Cheyenne Bottoms is the largest wetlands in the interior United States occupying approximately 41,000 acres. This tract currently has 66.2 acres of tillable land planted to corn. Several more acres could be registered into tillable land with a very flat lying pasture land consisting of great soils making up for most of the balance. 12 acres of cropland sits secluded in a natural horseshoe within the creek bottom almost acting as a large food plot for whitetails, a picture-perfect set-up for a November evening. A maintained county road sits along the East boundary-making for access no matter the weather, we all know how mother nature can spoil plans if access is in question to your property. One of this properties biggest attributes is its location being only one mile from Highway 96 and a short 5 miles from Great Bend Kansas!
