This property is ready to hunt! Located in between Greensburg and Pratt, Kansas, this tract is ready for stands to go up in prime locations and start filling tags! From walking this parcel, and from the number of old sheds found, this property has been a deer sanctuary for quite some time.
This land sits three miles to the south of Pratt Sandhills State Wildlife Management Area. The north half of this tract features six-foot tall native grass sprinkled with cedar trees and plum thickets. It is rolling terrain with high spots running along both roads, which hide the interior of the property. The native grass holds pheasants and numerous coveys of quail. It also provides cover and a bedding area for the deer.
The shelterbelt divides the property in half running east to west. It is a thick shelterbelt made up of cedar, black locust, catalpa, and some cottonwoods. The shelterbelt provides shelter and is loaded with whitetail signs. There are trails throughout, scrapes, and thigh-sized rubs. A person canít walk 20 yards without coming across a scrape or a tree rubbed up. The shelterbelt has two areas that extend out to the north that create a nice woodlot. These two areas are rather large and have locust trees and willow trees that have been allowed to grow and have become some substantial wood lots. Most of the sheds found were in these acreages of trees that bubble out from the shelterbelt. With the shelterbelt running east and west there are numerous stand locations on either side for the predominant south or north winds. There are some great areas of elevation in the native grass that would provide a superb spot for a tower blind to oversee the draws running up into the shelterbelt. Ground blind possibilities are endless.
