Hunting on the marsh

We offer hunting seasons for deer, migratory birds, squirrel and turkey. Beginning in the 2021/2022 season, State DMZs 56, 57, 58 and 70 are eliminated. Depending on where you hunt on the refuge, you will need to purchase permits from the State for DMZs 22, 24, 26, 42, and/or 51.

      For the 2021/2022 deer hunting season, State Deer Management Zones 56, 57, 58, & 70 have been eliminated. Depending on where you hunt on the refuge, you will need to purchase permits from the State for DMZs 22, 24, 26, 42, and/or 51.

      Hunters will be required to purchase the appropriate DMZ permit for those zones.  The Refuge will conduct its own lottery for deer hunting this year.  In addition, the new Annual Refuge Hunting Permit will be required.

      Permits are required to hunt on the Refuge

      • We require a $25 annual hunting permit in addition to required state and federal permits, stamps, and licenses. One annual permit allows you to hunt all seasons. Reduced fees will be available for seniors, active military, and is free for youth (16 and under). Annual permits go on sale March 1st each year. For more Refuge permit information click here.
