North Dakota Game and Fish Using Airplane for Seeding WMAs
The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is using an airplane to seed portions of wildlife management areas south of Bismarck-Mandan and near Lake Sakakawea.
Bill Haase, wildlife resource management supervisor, said seeding by airplane is needed because certain areas are inaccessible by ground equipment.
“We are seeding grass and some forbs species on 1,100 acres of the Oahe bottoms and another 500 acres on Douglas Creek, Detrobriand and Beaver Creek,” Haase said. “Our intent is to have more desirable species out-compete nondesirable species for wildlife habitat.”
The project is underway and will continue through April.
