Norman G. Wilder Wildlife Area consists of two large land tracts totaling more than 4,400 acres of wilderness near Viola. Horseback riding is very popular here whenever firearm deer seasons are not in session.

Another popular destination among hunters is the C&R Center bird-dog training grounds, conveniently located within the Petersburg Tract.

Before your arrival, we recommend you consult the current schedule of hunting seasons. Or, if you're ever in doubt, simply wear hunters' orange or other bright colors. Also, please be advised that wildlife areas typically keep signage to a minimum, so a compass or GPS unit may be a wise thing to pack.
