Hogsback Wildlife Area and Target Shooting Range

Thousands of years ago, the glaciers retreated from North Iowa, leaving bluffs 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. Waterfowl also hunters take advantage of the extensive wetlands at the foot of the bluff. Target shooters also enjoy the convenience of the target shooting range. There is a handgun shooting station and a longer range shooting station that allows people to shoot out to 200 yards.
