General Hunting Provisions
Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge is one of over 550 National Wildlife Refuges. The primary objective of a refuge is to provide habitat for the conservation and protection of all species of wildlife. The harvest of surplus animals is one tool used to manage wildlife populations at a level compatible with the environment, provide wholesome recreational opportunities, and permit the use of a valuable renewable resource. The various habitats found on the refuge include dune-grass community, shrub community, upland maritime forest, fresh water marsh and salt marsh. The Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge manages its hunt through a permit system.
