Anthony Branch Hike
In Wisconsin, United States
How Geocaching Works
Welcome to the Anthony Branch Wildlife and Fishery Area
Anthony Branch Fisheries and Wildlife Area is over 1,000 acreas in Southeast Dane County. This is an aesthetically pleasing property with gentle hills flowing into healthy wetlands and dotted with good woodland acres. Put all these ingredients together and you have a site that provides a good example of southern Wisconsin landscape at its best. The wetland is composed of wet-meadow, cattails, shrub-car, and sedge marsh with a high quality creek meandering though it. The Anthony Branch is stocked with trout. The property is also laced with old agricultural ditches that one needs to become familiar with in order to learn where the fords are. There are a few old farm ponds on the north end of the property. They can become stagnant at times (i.e., keep your dog from jumping in them!). The uplands are composed of prairie grass fields and cool season fields. There are woodlands on the property which harbor oak and hickory. The southern side of the property is dominated by box elder. In 2007, DNR began stocking pheasants on the property. We are limiting birds to the northern tier of the property - off of County Hwy A in the grass fields. Although this is a small property it is a sweet property to hunt due to the appealing lay of the uplands. It also compliments the Badfish Creek Wildlife Area and Hook Lake Wildlife Area, which are close by and are also stocked with pheasants.
A nice little to medium walk to the cache.... please use caution when retrieving and returning cache to its spot...... dangers do lurk!
