Isolated Trophy Whitetail Hunting Near The Saline River In KS



The acreage along and surrounding the Saline River in Northwest Kansas has become very well known for producing some of the largest whitetail deer in the nation each and every year. While the land encompassing the Saline River is very desirable and considered to be some of the most highly productive hunting land around, the rugged cedar lined hills and canyons bordering the river to the North and South provide the seclusion and solitude mature whitetail bucks seek when hunting and farm pressure in the Saline River valley force them to a safer home range. The combination of high deer and turkey populations, rugged terrain allowing deer to live to maturity, and whitetail genetics that are well above average make this area second to none for the avid trophy game hunter. Over 130 acres of cropland on this property provide an excellent food source for resident deer, turkey, and upland birds as well as steady income return from the land. Nearly 347 acres of grassland, wooded draws and breaks, and deep canyons complete the balance of the property acreage. This area of the county has produced several bucks that have gross scored over the B&C minimum and this property has all the qualities needed to hold and grow deer of that caliber nearly every year. This land offers incredible setups for early season muzzleloader and late season rifle hunting from the peaking hilltops overlooking the natural travel corridors within the bottoms below. Additionally, the tree line running through the center of the cropland and the mature trees within the farmstead provide tremendous treestand setups for archery deer hunters as well. Pheasants and quail are plentiful throughout the property and are sure to fulfill the expectations of the avid upland hunter. This is an excellent all-around hunting property in an area that has proven to be second to none for trophy whitetail deer hunting.
