Glacial Lake Grantsburg
Wildlife Management Complex

 

The Wildlife Areas managed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WI-DNR) Division of Wildlife Management commonly referred to as the Glacial Lakes Grantsburg Wildlife Management Complex, or GLG, include four wildlife areas located in Burnett County, Wisconsin. The Wildlife Management team for these wildlife areas are headquartered at the Crew Center at the south-west corner of Crex Meadows Wildlife Area. 

All wildlife areas are managed to sustain the wildlife and natural communities found on the properties and to provide a full range of traditional outdoor recreational uses. These include hunting, fishing, trapping, hiking and nature study. 

Hunting and trapping licenses and sales of tackle, guns, ammunition and other hunting equipment provide most of the funding for wildlife management in Wisconsin and most other states.

LEGAL INFORMATION ABOUT WILDLIFE AREAS

Section 23.09 (2) (d) 3., State Stats., provides legislative authority and direction for the acquisition and management of state wildlife areas. The primary purpose of state wildlife areas as stated in this statute is to provide "areas in which any citizen may hunt, trap or fish". Section 23.11 (1), Stats., provides for the general care, protection and supervision of state lands. Section 23.30, Stats., deals with the provisions of the outdoor recreation program.

The management and uses of state wildlife areas are further defined in NR 1.51. WI Admin Code. While hunting and trapping are the primary public uses for wildlife areas; other uses, such as walking, nature study, berry picking, and other low-impact recreational activities are also allowed. Other compatible open-space uses may be allowed under the property's Master Plan when they do not detract from the primary purpose of the property; however, they may be limited in time and location to avoid interference with wildlife production or survival and public hunting and trapping.
