Garton Wildlife Area is located 5 miles North and 1 mile East of Dighton Kansas. It is approximately 68 acres of fallow cropland and 252 acres of range land. Due to the population of Prairie Dogs on site, management practices are different then other areas. Many different types of management practices are implemented. On the west side of the property there is a small well that pumps water into a stock tank. The well is left on before and during hunting seasons to supply wildlife with water and to enhance hunting experiences.  The fallow field at the north end of the property has native grasses and wildflowers planted in it since 2017.  A food plot and pollinator plot will be planted in the future.
