Hunting in Bearberry Prairie Natural Area

This is a small parcel of land so hunters are reminded to consider the safety of other recreational users and the activities underway (such as frequent stopovers by geocaching enthusiasts and camping by river travelers). This island is surrounded by private land and accessible by boat. In addition to residences in the surrounding area, hunters are advised of the large industrial facility to the northwest.
