Mercer Wildlife Area

This 1,408-acre wildlife area lies in the grain farming country of west central Ohio and is bounded by U.S. Route 127 on the west and It's ItTownship Road on the east; it extends approximately one-half mile south of State Route 703.

The primary purpose of the wildlife area is to act as a refuge, providing resting and feeding areas for local and migrant wildlife. The waterfowl management area provides the largest and one of the few remaining areas around the lake that is free from human disturbance.

Only waterfowl may be hunted, and only on a restricted part of the wildlife area. Waterfowl hunting is on a controlled basis and a permit is required. Hunting is primarily for Canada geese. Hunters are provided blinds and goose decoys on the wildlife area.

Other hunting, trapping, and fishing are not permitted. The refuge area boundary is well posted.

There are great bird watching opportunities on the area.
