Solomon River Bend Trophy Hunting And Cropland
- Interactive Map
This 280 acre farm on the North Fork of the Solomon River offers the best of both worlds with trophy whitetail deer hunting habitat and extremely fertile irrigated and non-irrigated cropland. Anyone who has hunted North Central Kansas can testify to the fact that the Solomon River is the prime destination for hunting Boone and Crockett whitetail deer, as well as strutting trophy longbeards. This incredible farm features over 2 miles of highly desirable Solomon River frontage and is absolutely covered up with large rubs and scrapes, as well as dozens of heavily traveled deer trails that have served as superhighways for heavy bodied trophy whitetail bucks for many decades. This farm has incredible balance and diversity with excellent cropland, nearly 80 acres of river timber, and miles of water rushing through the Solomon.
Of the 199.91 total cropland acres, 84 acres are authorized for irrigation use and are flood irrigated by a 355 GPM well located on the property. These irrigated acres are on a corn and soybean crop rotation providing excellent, sustainable income from the farm. There are approximately 24 acres of alfalfa planted on the East side of the river and the remaining 92 +/- acres of cropland is planted to grain crops annually providing incredible crop and income diversity from the property while also supplying top notch seasonal food sources for the high number of whitetail deer in this area. The farmland is currently rented on a share crop arrangement. Contact the agents for more details regarding the cropland or farm lease.
Whether you are a seasoned veteran deer hunter with years of time spent in a tree stand or a rather novice to the sport, one stroll through the river bottom timber or along the crop field edges of this property will get the imagination running at full speed. Large flats of timber along the North end of the property are hammered with trails and flattened with deer beds. The nature of the Solomon River’s path running through this farm enables multiple hunters to hunt the farm at the same time. The river takes a long winding route through the farm separating it into several separate crop fields, which will be populated by different groups of deer each evening during a Fall hunt. There has been very little deer hunting, if any, on this farm over the past decade and you better believe the deer in this area are well aware of that. This farm has practically been a safe haven for the wildlife and the new owner will instantly reap the rewards of this as deer commonly feed in the cropfields long before dusk. There is public road access to the farm at the SW corner, but no public road frontage along any edge of the property. An easement provides access to the East side of the farm from the small town of Harlan. This checks the final box of managing for trophy deer – seclusion!
