Established in 1989 to conserve forested wetland habitat, Bond Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is within the floodplain of the Ocmulgee River. Opportunities to hunt deer, turkey and feral hogs attract hunters from across the state. Small game hunting for squirrel, rabbit and quail also is available. Access to the 7,760-acre refuge is primarily by foot with limited road access. The refuge floods frequently, making access difficult at times. All hunting requires a refuge-specific permit. Some hunts are a lottery drawing. The refuge is managed by Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge in Jones County, approximately 35 miles north of Bond Swamp National Wildlife Refuge.
