All four units of the Refuge are open to the hunting of ducks, geese, coots, sage grouse, mergansers, deer, pronghorn, and cottontail rabbits in accordance with dates and regulations established by the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission.
Hunting is an important wildlife management tool that we recognize as a healthy, traditional outdoor pastime, deeply rooted in America’s heritage. Hunting can instill a unique understanding and appreciate of wildlife, their behavior, and their habitat needs.
As practiced on refuges, hunting, trapping and fishing do not pose a threat to wildlife populations, and in some instances are necessary for sound wildlife management.
Hunting programs can promote understanding and appreciation of natural resources and their management on lands and waters in the Refuge System.
