Carlyle Lake is known as one of the top waterfowl hunting areas in the state. From November - January, there is a contolled Pheasant hunt at Eldon Hazlet State Park. The park has more than 50 acres designated for archery deer hunting, dove hunting, and upland game hunting. The Department of Natural Resources also provides opportunities for hunting white-tailed deer, turkeys, squirrels, bobwhite quail, rabbits and mourning doves. Trapping is permitted after the duck season.
The park also offers pheasant hunting and archery deer hunting opportunities for disabled hunters.
An archery range with an elevated platform is located in the park and is open all year except during the controlled pheasant season.
Birdwatchers can view ducks, geese, bald eagles, ospreys, cormorants, and great blue herons, as well as numerous species of shorebirds and songbirds.
