Hunters can pursue a variety of game species here, but the quota waterfowl hunts remain the most popular draw. Hunters travel from as far away as Montgomery, Atlanta and Tallahassee to hunt waterfowl at Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge. Two impounded areas are managed intensively for waterfowl, one in Alabama and one in Georgia. Hunters are assigned blinds and may bring two friends. Youth hunts are also held. Hunters can expect to see a variety of ducks, with wood duck, ring-necked duck, northern shoveler and gadwall the most common species. Each impoundment is hunted one day each week to keep pressure low. Hunters may only carry 25 shells per person. Deer hunting also is excellent at the refuge, and hogs may be taken during these hunts.
