Established in 1939 on abandoned farmland with little wildlife, Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge has been restored to upland pine and pine-hardwood forest where wildlife thrive. Georgia hunters know the refuge is a great place to pursue deer and turkey over 35,000 acres of forested habitat. The refuge also offers small game hunting opportunities for squirrel, rabbit, quail and raccoon. All hunting requires a refuge-specific permit. Some hunts are a lottery drawing.
