Hunting, Fishing & More...
Except where posted, all refuge roads, dikes, and levees are open to foot traffic. Morgan Brake National Wildlife Refuge offers excellent white-tail deer, squirrel, rabbit, raccoon and waterfowl hunting opportunities. Fishing for largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish is allowed year-round in certain areas of the refuge. Consult your hunting and fishing regulations brochures for details.
Hiking, bird watching, photography: Visitors are encouraged to go wild and check out the refuge’s rich collection of wildlife. The best time of the year for viewing wildlife is late fall through spring.
At Morgan Brake National Wildlife Refuge, you may catch a glimpse of one or more of the refuge’s approximately 200 species of neotropical migratory birds. During winter, look for Golden eagles or Bald eagles which nest in the area. Check out the white-tailed deer, gray and fox squirrels, swamp rabbit and a variety of small fur-bearers. And don’t miss the all-time-favorite American alligator, resident of the sloughs, streams, and shallow ponds.
