Located along the western basin of Lake Erie, Cedar Point National Wildlife Refuge draws large concentrations of both dabbling and diving ducks to its extensive marshes and shoreline. Public waterfowl hunting is available along the Lake Erie shoreline below the high-water mark, and access is available by boat only. Deer hunting occurs on two units, with opportunities for youth and archery hunters. Permits are issued via the lottery for these controlled hunts.
