Helpful Information

From archery season in October to spring turkey season in April, Box-R WMA offers ample opportunities for hunting deer, turkey, feral hog and small game. Hiking, biking and horseback riding are most pleasant on non-hunting days in the fall through the spring. Enjoy paddling year-round, but heat, thunderstorms and biting insects can make summer visits unpleasant. The fall and spring seasons are best for birding. New spring leaves and colorful fall foliage on the deciduous gum trees, red maples and cypress trees make for excellent nature viewing.
