Dinner Island Wildlife Management Area offers year round opportunities for outdoor recreation. Small, high-quality hunts for deer, feral hog and migratory game birds are held on several weekends in the late summer and fall. Turkey hunts are held on four weekends between February and April. Please note that horses are not permitted during periods open to hunting, except during dove hunts.
In the late fall, winter and spring, temperatures are usually pleasant. These are the best times to hike, bike and horseback ride and to see a variety of migratory birds. Butterfly and plant enthusiasts will appreciate fall blooming wildflowers and the many species of butterflies that they attract.
Hunters must comply with all hunting regulations
