2013 Managed Dove Fields

Webster Wildlife Area has one 10 acre sunflower field that should provide good opportunities for dove hunting. The field consists of two patches separated by a grassed terrace. Portions of the two patches have been mowed prior to the dove opener. The field is located on the north end and east side of the road that runs below the dam. Webster Wildlife Area does NOT require non-toxic shot for dove hunting.

THE FIELD IS OPEN TO ALL HUNTERS

Mandatory Hunter Survey Cards will be required during the first 3 days of the Dove hunting season for hunting on this field. Survey cards are available at the field.

2013 Webster Waterfowl Refuge

Webster reservoir is 21 feet below conservation level. The water level should remain fairly constant throughout the hunting seasons.

The refuge this year consists of the core area that extends from the point south of Old Marina Campground south into the lake, then east, and then back to the north shoreline east of the double mushroom in the Park. The portion of the reservoir that is "Closed to Hunting" lies northeast of the lint that extends from from the point south of the Old Marina Campground southeast across the reservoir to the bluffs in Goose Flats Campground at the south end of the dam. A "walk-in/nonmotorized boat hunting area" is located at the southeast corner of the reservoir. It extends from the southeast kiosk west to just west of 9 Road.

Hunters with questions or comments about these changes should contact the area manager, Michael Zajic at the Webster area office or call 785-425-6775.
