GRDA opens up property for controlled hunts in the fall

May 30, 2024

As it opens some of its Ottawa County property for controlled hunts this coming fall, the Grand River Dam Authority is announcing that the public can now register for those hunts online. The registration period to apply for next season’s deer, waterfowl and turkey hunts will run from June 1 through July 31.

Starting June 1, prospective hunters will be able to access the online registration link on by visiting the “Hunting” link under the Resources > Recreation > Rules & Maps tabs. You can also access the link here:

This page allows users to sign up for controlled hunts, beginning in the fall, on GRDA property along the Neosho River. Combined, GRDA is opening approximately 1,800 acres for these hunts.

Primary applicants can add up to three other individuals for a group of up to four hunters. While the hunts are open to the public, GRDA also asks that residents of its municipal customer, public power communities upload a copy of a utility bill as proof of residence for consideration for special opening day hunts.
