Lt. Gordon Manuel Wildlife Management Area Professional Review and Guide
"This 6,482-acre WMA has several unimproved roads leading through it, as well as some hiking trails. Visitors can launch a canoe from the boat landing in Hodgdon and spend a leisurely half day paddling and scanning the surface and edges of the deadwater for birds. A variety of waterfowl frequent the Hodgdon Deadwater—a wide, shallow section of the Meduxnekeag River. Great Blue Heron and Osprey have been noted. American Woodcock use the successional habitat and fields, and a variety of songbirds are found in wooded sections. While none have yet been recorded, Bald Eagle most likely frequent the area. Osprey are visible in spring and summer. A more comprehensive bird list has yet to be developed, since birders have not thoroughly explored this WMA. It is a great untapped resource."
