Department of Wildlife and Fisheries:
Sicily Island Hills Wildlife Management Area (SIHWMA) is located in northeast Catahoula Parish, 6 miles west of Sicily Island, Louisiana.  Major routes to the area are Louisiana highways 8 and 915.  A series of unimproved roads and trails provide access to the interior of the area.  Boeuf and Ouachita Rivers supply boat access to the western portion of the property.  SIHWMA is comprised of approximately 7,524 acres with the majority acquired by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in December 1980.
