Waterfowl hunting opportunities are available seasonally. Blue and green-winged teal, mottled ducks, gadwall, scaup, and shoveler are a few of the species hunted on McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge. Large portions of the refuge are open to hunters free of charge. Elsewhere, for $10 a day, hunters can reserve spaced hunt areas that can be accessed on foot or by boat. An accessible hunt blind is also available and can be reserved. All hunters are reminded that marsh conditions are dynamic. Hunters should scout units before hunting and use extreme caution when boating to hunt units. McFaddin Hunt 2016-17

Blue crab are bottom-dwellers and can be found in every type of habitat in the Gulf of Mexico -- from back bays and estuaries to the saltiest and deepest of waters, they thrive in the low tide line or at depths of 120 feet. Throughout the various stages of their lives, they are an important food source for many species, including humans.
