Late-Season Wing-Shooting: Grouse hunters are restricted to the northeastern ruffed grouse zone, but statewide opportunities abound for gray partridge, quail and pheasants. Good public hunts, especially for pheasants, in the Sioux City area include 1,000-acre Badger Lake and 1,300-acre Browns Lake wildlife areas. Badger Lake features corn, sorghum and hay seedings. Browns Lake is two-thirds marsh, one-third uplands and timber.
