Kaw Wildlife Area Waterfowl Report

The area consists of 4,341 acres of land and river, all well above the conservation pool of Kaw Reservoir which is downstream in Oklahoma. About one-fourth of the area is under cultivation. These cultivated lands are leased to local farmers, a portion of the crop is left standing to provide food and cover for wildlife. The remainder of the area is grasslands and riparian timber. There is approximately 20-25 acres of pumped wetlands on the west side of the Arkansas River.

White-tailed deer, waterfowl, turkey, dove, and bobwhite quail are the most numerous and sought after species. There is limited opportunity for pheasants. Cotton-tailed rabbits and squirrels are numerous and have limited pressure put on their populations.
