Pater Wildlife Area

Pater Wildlife Area is located in southwest Ohio, six miles south of Oxford near the village of Reily. 34 acres are leased to the Butler County Metro Parks. Two parking lots and interior roads provide easy access to the area for hunters and anglers alike.

The most frequently hunted species at Pater Wildlife Area are the fox squirrels, whitetail deer, and cottontail rabbits. The wooded hillsides and areas along Indian Creek are the best areas to find fox squirrels and whitetail deer. Brushy edges along the open fields are usually the best areas to hunt for cottontail rabbit. Raccoons and woodchucks are widely distributed and hunting is usually good. Trapping for muskrat and mink along the streams can be productive. The best fishing in Indian Creek is in the deeper pockets of the stream for smallmouth bass and rock bass.
