Hunting opportunities are abundant within the Fergus Falls Wetland Management District. The area includes a diversity of habitats from wetlands to upland grasslands. These areas support good numbers of Canada geese, mallard, teal, various diving ducks, other waterfowl, pheasant, turkey, deer, and other game species. Fergus Falls Wetland Management District hunting seasons generally follow state regulations.

Hunting is allowed throughout the district except on the Townsend (Prairie Wetlands Learning Center), Mavis, Gilmore and designated portions of Knollwood Waterfowl Production Areas in Otter Tail County, and Larson Waterfowl Production Area in Douglas County.

Return often, and bring a friend, to enjoy the outdoor wonders district lands offer to everyone.
