Our Duffy Road Trout stream restoration has been completed. There is a copy of a recent newspaper article from Juneau Land & Water Resources in PDF form in our download section on the Home Page for your viewing.
A new feature at Duffy Road is our Prairie Plant Display area adjacent to the parking lot. This was recently planted by our members: Larry & Diane Schmidt and Bill and Sarah Duckwitz. Signage is in the works for plant identification.
This fall we will be replacing our signs at the following properties: County N (Clubhouse), Duffy Road and Meyer Road (Fish Pond). We will also be incorporating property usage signs to clearly state the functions of each of the properties.
This 175+ acre parcel is home to our clubhouse where we hold monthly meetings, Kids Day and Hunter Safety course. It is also used by the local middle and high schools for environmental classes.
The property consists of 21 acres of pollinator areas helping our local bee and insect population. We also have 33+ acres of CRP land which aids in deer, turkey, pheasant and other wildlife habitat. The rest is in managed woodland.
Uses in this property are hiking, fishing (Lemonweir River boarders the northside) and hunting (Members only).

We are pleased to announce that we have closed on an adjoining 36 acre parcel. It was part of the Harold Seebecker Farm and consists of 19 acres of tillable land with the rest in Creek area and bottom land. We will have more on it's intended uses in the next coming months.

The 165 acre Nelson property is located on Hwy 12 & 16 just minutes north of Mauston. The property boarders the Lemonweir River and has a canoe launch that is open to the public. The public is welcome to explore the nature trails and river that feeds into Lake Decorah (Mauston). This property was donated to ODF by the Carl W. Nelson Foundation. There is no hunting allowed and is great for viewing wildlife. The road for the canoe landing was made possible by a grant from the Greater Mauston Visitor Committee.
The property consists of 35 tillable acres, 3+ acres of CRP with the rest in river bottom hardwood lands. No hunting is allowed.
This is a newly acquired property and is approximately 36 acres. Plans for a pollinator plot and more are in the works. The uses for this property will be made shortly.
In an effort to better serve the community, we are installing new signage identifying our properties and their uses. Not all properties are open to the public for hunting. You must be a member at this time for hunting privlages at County N and Duffy Road. No hunting is allowed at the Nelson property or Meyer Road.
The club is excited to be able to provide public fishing at Duffy Road (1 Mile Creek) and Meyer Road Pond. Appropriate license and stamps are required.
The Nelson property is ideal for launching a canoe or kayak as it boarders the Lemonweir River. A nature trail is also available just south of the launch area.
