The Schmeid Ranch On The Saline River In Northwest Kansas

Description

The Schmeid Ranch encompasses over 4,960 acres of land within the heart of trophy whitetail deer country in Northwest Kansas. It can be argued that the Saline River in this area features some of the best whitetail and turkey hunting in the State of Kansas and this ranch features over 1 ½ miles of the river. Nearly 350 acres of fertile cropland borders the river to the North with 34 acres under pivot irrigation. These crop acres produce steady income and hold and attract whitetail deer and turkeys to the ranch year-round. Multiple food plots have been developed throughout the center and Southern portions of the ranch in areas that provide incredible seclusion, bedding cover, and are near natural springs and ponds. The diversity of the terrain within the borders of the Schmeid Ranch encourages healthy wildlife populations, the ability to promote a good age structure for the deer herd, and endless hunting setups throughout different portions of the ranch. The flow of the river through the northern-most section of the ranch creates a natural travel corridor for archery deer hunting throughout the Fall from stand locations within the mature tree cover. The vast grassland to the South of the Saline River covers thousands of acres of timbered canyons, natural springs, and rolling hills of tall grass and brush. This portion of the ranch embodies some of the best firearms deer hunting you could ever ask for with its endless views from the shooting houses which have been strategically placed above the food plot locations below. The brushy draws and hillsides promote excellent quail hunting as well, and quail populations are currently at an all-time high for this area.

The many improvements on the ranch promote both comfort and cash flow from potential grazing and cropland leases and offer all the amenities for operating your own cattle herd as well. The grassland on the ranch is perfectly suited for grazing 450+ pairs during the summer months and the ranch headquarters features a 200+ head feed yard, corrals, and loadout area, as well as multiple equipment sheds and storage buildings. The farmstead features three houses, all of which have been well cared for and are perfect for housing family, hunting guests, or ranch hands. The main ranch home features 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and one ½ bath. This modern home provides over 3,000 square feet of living space between the main floor and a partial basement.
