Hunting opportunities are abundant within the refuge. All units are open to hunting. The refuge includes a diversity of habitats from floodplain and upland forests, and occasional flooded wetlands, to agriculture and early succession fields. These areas support deer, turkey, squirrels, rabbits and other game species. Refuge hunting seasons generally follow state regulations; however, it is important to note that specific units are archery hunting only or archery deer and shotgun only. Single projectile firearms are not permitted on the Boone’s Crossing and Cora Island Units.
