Methow Wildlife Area
Methow Wildlife AreaThe Methow Wildlife Area is 31,000 acres in seven units located in the Methow River watershed in the western half of Okanogan County. Acquisitions began in 1941 to relieve mule deer damage to local farmland by creating preferred habitat. Maintaining migration corridors and habitat for the Methow Valley’s migratory mule deer herds is the primary goal of most units, but other wildlife from songbirds to salmon also benefit. Many of the units border U.S. Forest Service (USFS) land. The wildlife area also provides access for wildlife viewing, hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, cross country skiing and other recreation.
