Hunting in Chippewa Falls


The landscape of Chippewa Falls and Chippewa County varies greatly from the rolling hills of the Chippewa Moraine in the north to the flat farmlands in the south. This landscape variety provides for a diversity of forest types, plant cover, water bodies and wildlife populations. Chippewa County is blessed with a wide variety of hunting opportunities, including: whitetail deer, bear, turkeys, pheasants, ruffed grouse, geese, ducks, rabbits and squirrels

Chippewa County has over 46,000 acres of lands open to the public for hunting. The largest tract of public lands, approximately 32,000 acres, is contained in the Chippewa County Forest. Other properties with lands open to public hunting include the Chippewa Moraine Unit, the Tom Lawin Wildlife Area, scattered state fishery area lands along trout streams, and private lands enrolled in either the Forest Crop Law or Managed Forest Law.
