Hunting 512Hunting is one of the priority recreational uses on National Wildlife Refuges and compatible with the mission of this refuge. Hunters help maintain wildlife populations that can potentially destroy habitat important to many other wildlife species. While enjoying this traditional, recreational activity, hunters help manage these lands for the benefit of wildlife and you.

The refuge provides opportunity to hunt for white-tailed deer (archery only), feral hogs, and wild turkey through a lottery permit system. Hunting for small game including squirrel and rabbit and dove hunting is also available.
