Our annual hunt program is one tool used to manage wildlife populations at a level compatible with the habitat. It also provides for wildlife-oriented recreational opportunities. Hunting is available to those with a valid, signed brochure/permit. Hunting is allowed following all State seasons and regulations and further Refuge restrictions contained in the brochure/permit.
Details about the 2023-2024 Hunt Season are available in the brochure below.
