A wide variety of hunting opportunities exists on many WPAs. Several duck and goose species, as well as large numbers of tundra swans utilize these lands during the fall migration. Upland game species found on many WPAs include ring-necked pheasants, gray partridge, mourning dove, and sharp-tailed grouse. The sprawling grasslands and dense shelterbelts found on many WPAs also provide secure cover for white-tailed deer, rabbits, and predators, such as fox and coyote.

Please refer to WPA Regulations or contact District headquarters for further information regarding hunting Waterfowl Production Areas.
