...A prairie jewel preserved for those whose hearts are stirred by whistling wings, wind, and water.
Freezout Lake WMA has, through the years, become one of the most spectacular waterfowl viewing areas in Montana, if not the entire northern Great Plains. Snow geese, tundra swans, and other migratory birds come to Freezout Lake to feed in the harvest fields of malting barley that surround the WMA and to rest in the ideal surroundings.
In early spring the WMA is getting crowded with wildlife viewers and photographers coming too see the thousands of birds, on the many ponds. The snow geese numbers are expected to rise to nearly 100,000 in late March or early April. Due to severe winter conditions in the area, their arrival may be a little late this year.
