War Horse National Wildlife Refuge

War Horse National Wildlife Refuge was established as a refuge and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife in 1958. This refuge consists of three units: War Horse Lake, Wild Horse Lake, and Yellow Water Reservoir. All are open to wildlife observation and hunting. Yellow Water Reservoir also provides boating and fishing opportunities. All units support waterfowl and other migratory birds. Spring and fall seasons provide the best opportunities. It's famous for its elk population which was reestablished in 1951 from Yellowstone National Park; and be sure to look for the ferrets which were released in 1993, large black-tailed prairie dog towns, which the ferrets depend on, sage grouse in early spring as they breed, birds like mountain plovers, peregrine falcons, and long-billed curlews.
