Walk-In Access (WIA) is a voluntary program that compensates landowners to allow public access for hunting on their land from September 1st through May 31st. With the number of hunters diminishing in the past decades, largely due to the lack of quality hunting land, the WIA program is more important than ever. A decrease in hunters means less support for wildlife and habitat; which in turn will have a negative effect on local wildlife populations. The WIA program will help sustain future generations of hunters while creating more local hunting opportunities. Le Sueur County currently has 3 parcels enrolled in the Walk-In Access program. Le Sueur County SWCD works with landowners to enroll land into the program.
