Red Lake WMA

County: Beltrami
Nearest Town: Faunce
Area: 111,094 ac

Directions: From Faunce, go 12 miles W on SFR.

Description: This subunit of the Red Lake WMA is managed by the Baudette Area Wildlife staff. Management objectives include maintaining large open land areas and openings for wildlife. Habitats include riparian hardwoods, spruce bogs, aspen forest, and brushland.

This large WMA provides opportunity to view and/or hunt a wide variety of species. Moose inhabit portions of this WMA although access for viewing may be difficult.

Timber management in RLWMA is also designed to provide diversity in species and age-classes in an effort to benefit game and nongame species. A watershed protection area surrounding the Red Lake SNA overlaps the southern portion of the WMA.

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.
