Walking Iron Wildlife Area

The 948-acre Walking Iron Wildlife Area is a public hunting area located north of Walking Iron County Park and the Village of Mazomanie and south of the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway and offers 898 acres of hunting opportunities for waterfowl, deer and turkey.  Lands east of CTH Y are primarily grassland restoration and crop fields.  Lands north of Amenda Road contain a small woodlot, crop fields and drainage ditches that can offer fantastic waterfowl hunting and observation.  Lands south of Amenda Road are being restored to oak savanna and offer excellent deer and turkey hunting.  

The Dane County Conservation League provided a substantial donation for parking lots and boundary signage.  The property can be accessed off a gravel parking lot at the intersection of CTH Y and Amenda Road and from two additional gravel parking lots on Amenda Road.
