Clarks River National Wildlife Refuge is mainly bottomland hardwood forest habitat along the East Fork of the Clarks River in western Kentucky. This makes it a popular location for upland game, turkey and deer hunting. The most-hunted species at the refuge is deer, with significant use by residents and non-residents. Hunters may pursue waterfowl on refuge lands during state seasons. Annual quota waterfowl hunts are held on Mallard, Redhead, and Wolfe Waterfowl Management Units during the state season. The drawings are conducted by the refuge.

Hunters with disabilities may apply at the refuge office for a special-use permit for all-terrain vehicle (ATV) use. Hunters are encouraged to start this process well before their designated season opens. For more information, visit the refuge website.
