Green Lake County offers hunters over 16,000 acres of public hunting land, from prairies and woods, to the beautiful and expansive marshland of the Great White River Marsh, which the backcountry of Princeton to Berlin.
Water hunting is possible via the White River to the Grand River, with small inlet running creeks, which are great for duck, pheasant and deer hunters. There is nothing better than sitting in the woods on a crisp clear morning listening to the sound of a deer sniffing at your sent coming down wind. You may even catch a buck rubbing his antlers on a tree, signaling his territory, or hear the great cackle of a rooster flying by your stand.
Walking up on a White River Marsh inlet creek and seeing a couple ducks take off into the morning sunrise is an experience few of us are lucky to have. Green Lake County has a lot to offer hunters looking to fill a buck tag or your limit on ducks. Instead, for a more “camaraderie experience”, join one of Green Lake County’s local hunt clubs (Pheasant Creek Hunt Club by Markesan, or Pheasants by the Fox, north of Princeton.)
Don’t worry about packing all your gear at home, throughout Green Lake county you’ll find registration stations and specialty stores offering all the supplies you may need to make your trip here memorable. Try us out and see for yourself why so many people come back to year after year to hunt and spend time in our great outdoor paradise, the Green Lake County countryside.
