Blackhoof River WMA was created around 1991 to protect an important whitetail deer wintering site and portions of the Blackhoof River and Nemadji River corridors. It contains the confluence of the two rivers, about three miles of each river’s corridor, and the broad upland between.
The flat to gently rolling uplands are dissected by the deep valleys of these rivers, and by several ravines created by Deer Creek and other unnamed connecting streams. Areas of old growth forest remain in the river bottoms. There are 18.6 miles of wide hunter walking trails, mostly on the uplands, that are mowed every year.
Visitors this week (6/14 to 6/20/2015) will find bunchberry at its peak, and Canada anemone and downy arrowwood in bloom.
