Willard Marsh Wildlife Area
This 1,676-acre wildlife area lies in the muck farming region of north central Ohio, four miles southwest of the city of Willard. Section Line Road provides access to the area from U.S. Route 224, three miles west of Willard. The area may also be reached by driving west of Bullhead Road from its junction with U.S. Route 224, and continuing 1.5 miles past the village of Celeryville.
The brushy areas at Willard Marsh provide excellent cover for a substantial number of deer. Moderate numbers of rabbits, quail, pheasants, and fox squirrels can be found here, and furbearers are common. Because of its unique geological history, Willard Marsh may be most valuable in terms of nongame species.
Best upland shooting is found between Section Line Road and Honey Creek ditch on the west side of the area. The fields in the northern section, adjacent to Bullhead Road, are also good. Deer are usually found near the level ditches and in the brushy areas on the east and south sides. Trapping is most productive adjacent to water areas.
