Tallahatchie has a popular hunting program. Hunters pursue large-antlered for white-tailed deer, squirrels, rabbits, ducks and feral hogs. Youth hunts fro both deer and waterfowl are heavily promoted on the refuge. The laanding on Tippo Bayou provides boat access to hunters and fishers alike.

Wildlife Observation
Wildlife observation and photography can be enjoyed at Dahomey by using the public roads and walking trails that border and bisect the refuge lands. These roads and trails are open year-round. Wildlife viewing is best in the early morning and late evening, but it is possible to see wildlife at any time during the day.

Birding is good year-round. Winter is excellent for viewing migratory waterfowl. Spring is best for catching glimpses of neotropical migratory songbirds.

Hiking is permitted on roads open to vehicular traffic and walking trails.




Hours
The refuge lands are open seven days a week from dawn to dusk (year round). The North Mississippi Refuges Complex office, which is located in Grenada, MS, is generally open from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
