Refuge hunting information is updated annually. The information below is intended to provide users with an idea of the opportunities we offer at the refuge. Hunting permits will be available during the last week in August.
The refuge will be open to the following hunting seasons:
- Big Game (deer and fall turkey season): Firearm and Archery (fox & coyote may be taken with bow or shotgun with deer permit during the firearm season)
- Migratory Birds (duck, geese, woodcock, snipe)
- Upland Game Birds (ruffed grouse, pheasant, quail)
- Special Falconry Season
ATVs are not permitted. Turkey hunting in the spring is not permitted. Hunting permits are required; a fee is required for each permit. Please visit the permits page for instructions on obtaining a hunting permit.
* Please note that we have sold all of the refuge hunting permits available for the 2015 season. Thanks to all our hunters who participate in the responsible take of Maine’s natural resources.
