Deer Hunting is allowed on the refuge only as scheduled. We have several black powder hunts, bow hunts, and one mobility impaired hunt each year. The schedule is printed in our annual hunt brochure.
Waterfowl Hunting is allowed during the state waterfowl hunting season, only in specific areas on the refuge and only during specific times as listed in the hunt brochure.
