Riverton, Iowa - Hunters planning to go to the Riverton Wildlife Area for the September teal season will need to adjust the way they plan to hunt. The main pump used to flood the wetland has been offline for the past two weeks.

“We are working with a local contractor to get the main pump running again,” said Matt Dollison, wildlife biologist for the Riverton Wildlife Area. “We are pumping water at the Jensen tract, which is south of county highway J46, that should have huntable water for walk in hunters.”

Iowa’s September teal only season is Sept. 1-16 statewide.
