Wenlock WMA
Body: 

Wenlock Wildlife Management Area is one of the real special Wildlife Management Areas that is owned by Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. About one-half of the nearly 2,000-acre WMA is considered deer wintering habitat and is part of the 15,000-acre Nulhegan wintering area. One of the most popular attractions at Wenlock is less than a half-mile from a parking area on  South America Pond Road. A short trail through the forest leads to a 30-acre opening, where a boardwalk across a soggy peat mat leads visitors to Moose Bog.

Podunk WMA
Body: 

The Podunk Wildlife Management Area was purchased in 1963 from a local hardwood manufacturer who used the land to supply his mill with lumber. And now here we are in the summer of 2013 celebrating the 50 year ownership of this property. No one knows exactly how the Podunk wildlife area received its name. But the 926 acre parcel located in the town of Strafford is easily accessible and offers visitors plenty to see and explore.
