Otter Creek Ranch: A Waterfowl And Wildlife Mecca in Kansas


Very few properties can check all the boxes when it comes to recreation, this property literally has it all for the serious outdoorsman. Situated approximately 30 miles west of the famous waterfowl refuge Cheyenne Bottoms which is the largest marsh in the interior U.S. located in the heart of the Central Flyway. It’s very common for this property to hold thousands of waterfowl during season with over 30 +/- acres of main lake water and an additional 30 +/- acres of water throughout the winding Otter Creek. Standing timber exists throughout the creek making it feel as if you were hunting Stuttgart Arkansas mallards. Very thick timber and mature CRP grass throughout the property also provide some of the best whitetail deer hunting in the county, be sure to check out the trail camera pictures. Equipped with two Banks blinds and two 600 pound all-season feeders that are strategically positioned over food plots. Three different 5-acre food plots have been planted to standing milo providing food for all wildlife throughout the stressful winter months. 2 clover plots sit adjacent to the timber making for picture-perfect setups for those crisp November mornings we all dream of. Approximately 260 acres of CRP currently enrolled until 2022 paying $9,500. The CRP is an upland bird magnet holding hundreds of pheasants and quail throughout the year. The 15 acres of milo food plots are a buffet for the upland birds, almost making it too easy while following a bird dog with a shotgun. Numerous mature cottonwoods are ideal roost trees for the Rio Grande turkeys that are prevalent along Otter Creek. 4 brand new locked metal gates exist on every entrance. Whether its waterfowl, deer, turkeys, upland birds or fish this place has it all and then some, a true diamond in the rough that you will soon realize while viewing the property.
