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 took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
