The team at Whitetail Properties is proud to announce the premium offering of the “Cross Ridge Ranch” in the picturesque Chautauqua and Cowley Counties of Kansas. The contiguous 2,895 acre Cross Ridge Ranch is a rare and exciting combination ranch with both world class hunting opportunities right alongside the outstanding Flint Hills grass that allows for a coveted grazing property. The ranch maintains a conservative stocking rate of 600 yearling steers for approximately 100 days per year from May to July, creating a nice income for the ranch owner. The weight gains on those steers have consistently averaged 3lbs per day in years past. The ranch also has productive tillable ground with about 105 acres currently in wheat crop. The property has ample natural water in two rock bottom creeks, with parts of both Rush Creek and also Rock Creek flowing in and along the property. There are also 11 ponds and an outstanding 25-acre watershed lake that sustains a healthy population of giant crappie’s, huge bass, bluegill, and catfish. The fishing on the 20’ deep clear watered large watershed, along with several other ponds, add up to excellent fishing opportunities. The hunting possibilities also are second to none with resident populations of quail, ducks, geese, turkey’s, and of course world-class deer hunting. The hunting pressure in the area is very limited surrounding the ranch as there are two very large ranches to the south and the west that do not allow significant hunting pressure. Both of those ranches are approximately 40,000 acres in size. The owners have taken a great expense in maintaining the age structure of the deer for trophy quality opportunities with food plots, permanent blinds, and feeders all in place. There is a very nice ranch house with 3,300 finished sq.ft. along with 5 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths. Right alongside the home is two guest cabins, a 1200 sq.ft.., 2 bed and 1 bath, and also a 275 sq.ft. 1 bed and 1 bath cabin. This ranch has been maintained on every level, from the fencing upgrades to the constant re-rocking of the interior road system, to the development of all the recreational possibilities, this ranch has got it covered. Oh, and if you want views that stretch across 20 miles of some of the prettiest Kansas landscape you have ever set eyes on, you had better come take a look at this. Call for more details or showing.
