Hunting is an extremely popular activity on Toppenish National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge covers a variety of habitats, including rough, uneven terrain, deep waters, dense stands of vegetation, stubble fields and ditches. Hunting difficulty varies by area, and hunters should examine their own abilities and limitations before using the refuge. Disabled persons should hunt with a partner and consult the refuge manager for suggestions for hunting the area safely. The use of dogs is not mandatory, but highly encouraged. Successful hunters usually have a dog to retrieve downed birds that otherwise might not be found. Decoys and calls should be used to bring birds into ideal shooting range.
