Each season the refuge closes down certain sensitive areas as a place the waterfowl and other Migratory birds can go to be undisturbed for the winter. Most waterfowl have now migrated North and these sanctuary areas will reopen on March 16th.
The refuge offers a wild turkey spring hunt following state regulations and state bag limits. An Annual Hunting Permit is required at a cost of $15.00 annually.For more information about hunting on refuge
