The Department of Wildlife and Parks managed more than 12,000 acres in the upper reaches of the project.
Burned-off wheat stubble and sunflower fields attract doves in early fall.
Deer and turkey hunting is good in the woody draws and river bottoms.
Fox squirrels are abundant in timbered areas.
Semi-open grasslands and weed strips along timber stands harbor bob-white quail and pheasant.
A 200-acre marsh (built with sportsmen's dollars) located about seven miles north of Olsburg and a 40-acre marsh located about two miles north of Randolph on the east side of U.S. 77 are good duck hunting areas. As the season progresses and temperatures drop, hunt the stubble fields and creeks.
Watch boundary lines that separate public hunting lands from private property. Much of Tuttle's public hunting area is separated from the road by private land. Respect landowner's property. Don't drive across crops. To hunt private property, you must have permission.
Public land managed by the Department is posted with black and yellow "Public Hunting" signs. All major roads entering the area are marked with large white signs with black letters stating "Public Wildlife Area." All state regulations pertaining to limits and hunting and fishing methods apply at Tuttle. Blinds for waterfowl hunting must be made from natural materials found at the blind's site. All blinds must be portable and removed at season's end.
