Ray Norbut - East Hannibal Unit
The Hannibal Unit of Ray Norbut Fish & Wildlife Area is a small tract that was acquired from the Illinois Department of Transportation as a result of the construction of a new bridge over the Mississippi River. The land cover consists of recent tree plantings and established woodlands. A series of ditches and natural sloughs are also present on the property. The size of the parcel and proximity to roadways restricts the site to archery hunting and trapping programs only. LOCATION:
