Refuge(NOT open to hunting)
October 1 through March 31 the area can only be accessed with a special permit obtained through a drawing. The application and drawing will take place online only in 2017. Look for "Special Hunts" on our home page under "HUNTING".
|Hunting conditions||A few more ducks seem to keep showing up weekly. Not great numbers yet. But opportunity to shoot a few ducks is present.|
|Expected hunting success||Low to Fair. Success could vary day to day.|
In an attempt to hold water longer in our wetlands, #1 and #2 have been sheepsfooted. Rains during the summer months prevented us from doing them as early as we had hoped. This has caused those two wetlands to have no vegetation this year,
but invertebrates should still be present.
With reduced vegetation this does provided much more visibly open water on the area.
