Jasper-Pulaski Fish & Wildlife Area is dedicated to providing quality hunting and fishing opportunities while maintaining 8,142 acres of wetland, upland and woodland game habitat. The property's suitable habitat provides an ideal stopover for migratory birds. More than 10,000 sandhill cranes stop during fall migration.
Acquisition of the land for Jasper-Pulaski began in 1929. During the 1930s, Jasper-Pulaski was designated as a game farm and game preserve. Hunting began at the property in 1958, and in 1965, the area was designated as a fish and game area. Then in 1972 the name was changed to fish and wildlife area.
