Helpful Information

Opportunities for outdoor recreation abound throughout the year, although during hunting days, the area is only open to individuals with a quota hunt permit. Small, high-quality hunts for deer and feral hog are held on several weekends in the fall. Small game hunts occur on weekends in January, and turkey hunts are held on a few weekends in March and April. Bank fishing is excellent along the Suwannee River shoreline and is best in April, May and June. In the fall and spring, temperatures are usually pleasant. These are the best times to hike or bike and to see a variety of migratory birds.
