Hunting is an important wildlife management tool that we recognize as a healthy, traditional outdoor pastime, deeply rooted in America’s heritage. Hunting can instill a unique understanding and appreciate of wildlife, their behavior, and their habitat needs.
As practiced on the Lower Hatchie NWR, hunting and fishing do not pose a threat to wildlife populations, and in some instances are necessary for sound wildlife management.
Hunting programs can promote understanding and appreciation of natural resources and their management on lands and waters in the Refuge System.
To find out more about hunting opportunities, seasons and regulations on the Lower Hatchie National Wildlife Refuge, see our Lower Hatchie NWR's Public Use Regulations brochure.
