Find Maine Wildlife Area 7 miles north of Shiocton. There is one parking area for the property located on Beyer Road. Access is better under frozen ground conditions.


The Maine Wildlife Area is managed to provide opportunities for public hunting, trapping and other outdoor recreation while protecting the qualities of the native communities and associated species found on the property. Current management objectives include maintaining and protecting the open tamarack bog and black-spruce fringe through water level maintenance. The aspen and oak cover types are maintained along the ridges and opportunities to regenerate both types are pursued through timber management. Populations of invasive species are controlled by cutting, pulling, burning, herbicide treatment and/or bio-control.
