Established in 1942, as Sunflower Army Ammunition plant, this 9,000 acre piece of property, located 25-miles west of Kansas City, in De Soto, Kansas, was never hunted until after 1990. Then, only a handful of plant employees were allowed to hunt. From 1990 until 2008 archery was the only method of hunting allowed. Between 2008 and 2012, no hunting has taken place on the property. This unique location holds a tremendous number of trophy class whitetail deer and turkeys. View the gallery of pictures of trophy deer on the property.
