Waterfowl production area

9 posts in this topic

Is there a GPS chip that has Waterfowl Production Areas on it? My Lakemaster chip has Wildlife areas on it but not Waterfowl Production Areas.

I believe they are on PRIM maps.

You might check DeLorme, the manufacturer of the Gazeteer.

Unless they've changed PRIM, the DNR does not post the federal WPAs, but last I looked was 10 years ago and never looked back.

WPAs are not noted on the DNR recreation compass on their web site either.

Is there one book that has all the prim maps in it?

Also....from what I have read all WPA's require non-toxic shot...correct? This is different than WMA's......so for pheasant hunting you would need to have both available if hunting private land and WPA's?

If you are on a WPA you need non-toxic shot, period. You can not have lead shot in your possession.

This is one of the reasons I only shoot steel now. We go from spot to spot and I really don't want a ticket for having a couple shells in my pocket.

I'm with boilerguy, I just shoot steel for pheasant hunting, then I don't have to worry when I go back and forth from private land to Wildlife Mangement areas to Waterfowl Production areas. I've shot a lot of pheasants with #2 steel.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
