Migratory bird hunting, upland game hunting and big game hunting were expanded in 2015. Ducks Unlimited consistently ranks Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge as one of the top five waterfowl hunting spots in the United States. It is easy to see why. As many as 85,000 ducks and 200,000 snow geese use the refuge in the fall. The refuge's well-managed hunting program includes seven well-spaced State Area fixed duck blinds and five blind sites via GPS coordinates allocated by a lottery drawing that is held two hours before legal shooting time each morning on refuge hunting days. Hunters who are drawn may select available blinds that must be accessed by boat or one of the five walk-in blind sites. Hunters may hunt ducks until 3 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays throughout the state duck season. The refuge also offers hunts for white-tailed deer, dove and rabbit. A late-season snow goose hunt may be available on a first-come, first-serve basis subject to Conservation Order Limits. Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge is one of the sport's great destinations in the Atlantic Flyway. With such a wealth of hunting opportunities, it's easy to see why many sportsmen return year after year.
