About the Wetland Wonders

Michigan's Wetland Wonders are the premier Managed Waterfowl Hunt Areas (MWHAs) in the state. These areas were created to provide exceptional waterfowl hunting opportunities, and are managed to provide waterfowl habitat for nesting and migration and for the benefit of other wetland wildlife. Since the beginning, the areas have been funded by hunting license fees and area use fees, but they are open for anyone to visit, use and enjoy most of the year.
