Hogsback Wildlife Area and Target Shooting Range

Thousands of years ago, the glaciers retreated from north Iowa, leaving bluffs, such as the one here, standing over adjacent marshlands. This area contains a mixed oak forest, as well as a nice mixture of woodland wildflowers and native grasses. The timbered areas are especially popular with deer, squirrel, and turkey hunters, and waterfowl hunters take advantage of the extensive wetlands at the foot of the bluff. Target shooters also enjoy the convenience of the target shooting range.
