Rules and Regulations

Public use regulations are designed to protect the sportsman and wildlife populations. The Public Use Regulations provided supplement the general regulations which govern all public uses on national wildlife refuges as set forth in Title 50, Code of Federal Regulations. Hunting and fishing will be in accordance with applicable State and Refuge specific regulations.


 Refuge Access permits are required for all refuge users. When signed and in your possession, the cover section of the brochure serves as your permit for all refuge hunts (except all Quota Hunts) and other permissible activities, and acknowledges your understanding of the regulations contained herein.
