Killbuck Marsh

A double dose of waterfowling starts with Killbuck Marsh. Annually harboring flights of black ducks, mallards and James Bay Canadas, Killbuck is also loaded with resident populations of wood ducks and geese. Most of the birds can be reached by wading Killbuck's 5,295 acres of marshlands and creeks. The portion of Killbuck Creek just west of State Route 83 in Holmes County is an excellent place to hunt.Heading east, the 6,772 acres of the Grand River Wildlife Area comprise a vast network of beaver marshes, oxbows and intersecting creeks, which also holds excellent populations of wood ducks. Jump-shoot black ducks and mallards on the main river. The major roads through the area provide hunters with several parking areas. Contact: Ohio Division of Wildlife (330-644-2293).
