Idaho Wildlife Management Areas Interactive Maps

Thirty-two Wildlife Management Areas located in six Fish and Game regions have been established to protect wildlife habitat and are available for hunting, fishing and other public enjoyment of wildlife. Varying from 275 to 85,000 acres, each area is dedicated to primary purposes such as big game, waterfowl and upland game.

The lands encompassed by the WMAs vary from backcountry forested habitats for big game animals to agricultural areas with important pheasant and waterfowl habitat. Thousands of big game animals winter on some WMAs and tens of thousands of waterfowl winter on others. Nongame wildlife use all the WMAs. These lands are diverse and critical habitats that provide great opportunities to enjoy both game and nongame wildlife.
