Hunting Hunting at Eby's Mill Wildlife Area
Dolomite rock outcrops, bluffs, and scenic river views dominate this predominately wooded area. Over the years, the Bruggeman family used timber stand improvement management on this site, encouraging a high quality woodland community dominated by oak, hickory, and walnut.  One 18 acre walnut planting was added in 1989.  Some areas of the woodlands include hard maples and linden trees.    The area is open to hunting, hiking, bird watching and cross country skiing
