Possession of the land which comprises Deer Creek Fish and Wildlife Area began in 2010 with a transfer of 1,962 acres from the Putnamville Correctional Facility to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Fish & Wildlife. Deer Creek FWA is comprised of rolling interspersed agriculture and mature oak hickory dominated woods. A four acre pond is located on the north portion of Deer Creek that offers fishing for bass, bluegill and catfish. Deer Creek winds through the south portion of the property and is associated with one low head dam, iron bridge and a concrete creek crossing. A smaller unnamed creek crossed the north portion of the property.
