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.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
