The meandering bayous of Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge cut through ancient floodplains, creating expanses of coastal marsh and prairie along Galveston Bay in southeast Texas. These coastal marshes and prairies are host or home to an abundance of wildlife, from migratory birds to alligators to bobcats and more. For waterfowl hunters, blue- and green-winged teal, mottled duck, gadwall, pintail and shoveler are a few of the species hunted among the different hunt units. Hunters have access to 40 percent of the refuge, with both free and fee zones available. Hunters are reminded to be aware of marsh conditions, as well as potential threats from alligators, venomous snakes and fire ants. Hunters prepared for the conditions find some of the best waterfowl hunting opportunities in southeast Texas. Check with refuge main office for current regulations and hunt zones.
