Dawson County Hunt and Farm

Click here to watch a video of this property

Great hunting land with income! This property is tucked away at the end of an isolated road, and is surrounded by crop ground, providing ample feed for deer and other game. There are two ponds on the property, along with a windmill and a tank, so there are water sources for wildlife and cows alike on the property. The submersible well is only 2 years old. This nice piece of Nebraska land for sale is comprised of approximately 108 acres of canyon-y range and around 50 acres of terraced dry cropland.

The range land is ideal for deer (both whitetail and Mule deer are in the area), turkey, doves, quail and pheasant. The draws provide shelter from the frigid winter winds, but close access to both food and water sources. Numerous doves were seen flying near the ponds. The current tenant reports that this property is a neighborhood “highway” for deer traveling between their winter shelter and the best fields for ample winter feed. This year the crop on this dryland farm is sorghum, so it is expected that the birds and deer alike will love to forage in these fields after harvest. The property offers endless entertainment (as well as some danger!) to the avid ATV enthusiast. A few strategically positioned elevated blinds would make this a hunting haven.

Income Potential

  • 10 to 15 pair x 5 months x $40 per month (avg) = $2000 to $3000 annually
  • Crop income figured on the previous year’s corn crop yields. This is the first year of sorghum, so there is no base acre information for that crop.
  • First 30 bushels @ $5.00 = $150.00 x 50 acres = $7,500​ (Existing crop belongs to the renter. Lease expires November 1, 2021)
