Minnesota's wildlife managements areas are "backbone" of state's system


The busy season has begun in earnest for Don Nelson of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Nelson is the area wildlife supervisor for the 27,500-acre Whitewater WMA (Wildlife Management Area), the state’s fifth largest unit, in Winona, Wabasha and Olmsted counties.

“We have a lot of balls in the air this time of year,” Nelson said. “We’re getting the parking lots mowed and ready and the boundaries posted for the upcoming hunting seasons. This last week I’ve even been monitoring a couple of timber management sales, and our habitat management work continues and is ongoing. You don’t know what’s going to crop up from one day to the next, but it keeps things interesting.”
