General Description

Over 25,000 acres in Leslie and Clay counties make up the Redbird Wildlife Management Area. Found within the Daniel Boone National Forest, the Redbird WMA is popular among hunters, anglers, and trail users. Part of the Redbird Crest ATV Trail travels through the WMA, which also has 25 miles of improved hiking trails. Popular species that are hunted include whitetail deer, wild turkey, squirrel and other small game. The southern portion of the WMA is open for elk hunts to those who are drawn for an elk permit. The Redbird River is one of Kentucky's native muskellunge streams, and also contains good populations of smallmouth, spotted bass and rock bass. There is no doubt there is plenty of adventure waiting at Redbird Wildlife Management Area.
