Hunting and fishing opportunities are abundant within the refuge. The area includes a diversity of habitats from floodplain and upland forests, to deep water swamps and shallow wetlands, to grasslands and early successional fields. These areas support waterfowl, deer, quail, turkey, squirrels, rabbits and other game species. Refuge hunting seasons generally follow state regulations; however, the refuge maintains special conditions that must be followed while hunting on the refuge.
