Waterfowl Hunting Kansas – Neosho Wildlife Area Renovation

September 26, 2016

Many people think of Southeast Kansas for its deer hunting, but locals and many hunters from other states know how good this area is for waterfowl hunting as well.

I grew up hunting waterfowl on the Neosho Wildlife Area. The Neosho Wildlife Area in Southeast Kansas encompasses 3,246 acres of land in the broad valley of the Neosho River, just east of St. Paul. This includes 1,748 acres of wetlands.

The refuge is 57 years old and hasn’t had any major improvements made since. But earlier this year, a renovation project was approved to renovate the land to enhance natural habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife.

It sounds like the hunting for the 2016-2017 season will be impacted but the habitat enhancements will prove to be great for the area in the long term. I am excited to see it get a makeover that will provide additional habitat and ensure quality hunting for years to come. See article below for more information and to stay updated on the project’s progression.
