Perry Wildlife Area News

DUE TO RECORD SETTING AND LONG-LASTING FLOOD EVENTS THIS SPRING, ONLY TWO FIELDS SURVIVED THE FLOODING AND ARE AVAILABLE THIS YEAR. WE PLANTED NEAR 80 ACRES AS WE USUALLY DO AND WILL CONTINUE TO IN YEARS TO COME. THERE IS NO YOUTH/MENTOR/HANDICAP OR REFUGE FIELD THIS YEAR. 

Two managed Dove fields are located on the Perry Wildlife Area totaling about 28 acres. ALL DOVE FIELDS ON PERRY WILDLIFE AREA ARE NON-TOXIC SHOT ONLY. All fields are sunflowers with the centers of the fields mowed out for hunters to sit around the perimeter of each field.  A field is located just Southwest of the area office off Finney Rd to the West of Finney Rd. and totals 8.5 acres. The second field is located North of 190th Rd on the West side of the Delaware River. This field is Northeast of the parking area and Kiosk on 190th Rd and totals about 19.4 acres.  

Maintain safe shooting distances between hunting parties and always know what lies beyond your target. It is highly recommended that hunters where safety/shooting glasses within the dove fields to prevent potential injury due to falling pellets.  

Detailed maps and information will be posted on the Perry Wildlife Area web page. 

Perry Wildlife Area is included in the electronic permitting system iSportsman. This system, which will streamline data gathering for management purposes and be convenient for hunters, has taken the place of the old paper dove survey card system. Hunters can register at any time by going to kdwpt.isportsman.net, and clicking on “Register” to create a permit. Once you obtain a permit and are ready to hunt, click on login, than enter login ID and password to “check-in” daily for hunts. After you are done hunting, you will “check-out” and record any harvest you may have from the hunt. You are also able to check-in/check-out by telephone or smart phone. iSportsman is mandatory for all hunters pursuing any type of game on the Perry Wildlife Area
