Wapiti WMA

County: Beltrami
Nearest Town: Fourtown
Area: 31,759 ac

Directions: From Four Town, go 9 miles N and W on CSAH 44 then 1 mile N on Twp Rd.

Description: This is a large management area of interspersed brushlands, forested habitats and wetlands.

Opportunities to hear elk bugling are limited to September and October.

Management activities on this unit focus on maintaining brushland complexes and forested habitats of varying ages.

There is a wide-ranging elk herd in this area, and you may occasionally be able to spot them on this WMA. In September and October, elk can be spotted in openings, especially at dawn and dusk. Elk are year-round residents of this unit.

At this scale, these WMA boundaries are general, and do not accurately represent the actual legal boundaries. WMA users still need to verify public lands boundaries by observing boundary signs and contacting local DNR Wildlife offices.
