J.E. Roush Lake FWA advisories

  • Due to wet spring conditions, J.E. Roush Lake FWA was unable to plant sunflower fields at the appropriate time. This has caused fields to be underdeveloped and thus will negatively impact dove hunting at Roush this year. An in-person draw will be held on Sept. 1 & 2, but we highly encourage hunters to scout fields before the season starts due to their poor development. We apologize for the inconvenience and wish everyone a safe and enjoyable hunt.

LaSalle FWA advisories

  • Badal Wetland Conservation Area (WCA) will now be known as LaSalle FWA-East Unit. The renaming will simplify the enforcement of regulations and hunting on the property.
