Excellent Whitetail Habitat On The Arkansas River In Southwest KS


The Arkansas River in Southwest Kansas has held a reputation for some of the best whitetail deer hunting in the nation for many years. The whitetail deer in the area seem to thrive within the river bottom’s dense cover, warm-season grasses, and the gently rolling water flowing through the river bed. Upon first sight, this Arkansas River honey hole has all the looks of a trophy whitetail hunting property. The Amazon Canal bed is pounded with thousands of deer tracks and multiple crossings. Just outside the heavy brush between the canal and the actual river bed there are thickets and bushes that have been destroyed by rutting bucks, there are buck scrapes the size of car hoods under several low hanging cottonwood limbs, and multiple electrical poles that have been absolutely shredded by mature whitetail bucks making their statement to the herd. This is a primetime property during the Fall hunting months and is the right size property to hunt multiple hunters.
