This WMA is about equally divided between two non-contiguous tracts with an additional 33 acre non-contiguous tract located between the other two. The area is characterized by open uplands bisected by wooded draws and creeks typical of the interspersed postoak-blackjack oak and tall grass prairie habitat types.

  • Turkey: Rio Grande turkey are transient through the area.
  • Deer: White-tailed deer inhabit the area.
  • Rabbit: Cottontail rabbits inhabit the area.
  • Furbearers: Coyote, bobcat, raccoon and other common furbearers inhabit the area.

  • Waterfowl: Various species of waterfowl may occasionally utilize the small ponds located on the wma. 

Prescribed fire and periodic grazing may be utilized to enhance wildlife habitat.
