Hardware Ranch Wildlife Management Area (WMA) was purchased by the State of Utah in 1945 as a location to operate a winter feeding program for Rocky Mountain Elk. Hardware Ranch WMA also provides habitat for many other species of wildlife, promotes wildlife research and management, and offers visitors recreational wildlife education. Through a cooperative effort with private contractors, Hardware Ranch offers opportunities during the winter season including horse-drawn sleigh rides to view the wintering elk, a gift shop and summer weekend wagon rides. Open for fishing during the summer with proper licenses.
Open December 15 to March 15.
