At the Silvio O. Conte National Fish & Wildlife Refuge (NFWR), we welcome people of all backgrounds and abilities to participate in recreational hunting and fishing as priority public uses of the National Wildlife Refuge System.

The Silvio O. Conte NFWR selected Alternative A with minor modifications for its final 2023 Hunting and Fishing Plan as outlined in the supplemental Environmental Assessment which was released for a 30-day public comment period on April 24, 2023. The final documents are available online beginning June 2, 2023 at the refuge’s official website at

Across the country, National Wildlife Refuges work closely with state agencies, tribes, private partners, and the public to expand recreational hunting and fishing access. Hunting and fishing provide opportunities for communities, families, and individuals to enjoy the outdoors, support conservation efforts, and participate in a popular American tradition.
