Strip Pits Hunting

category : Hunting
Native grass establishments, timber stand improvement,
food plots, and shrub planting continue to improve quail
habitat. Cottontail rabbits and fox squirrels are abundant.
Several large food plots are managed specifically to
attract doves in September. Doves can be abundant and
offer good opportunities for all ages.
Waterfowl hunting can also be good on the area.
Several marshes have been constructed to attract
ducks. A waterfowl refuge often holds several hundred
Canada geese in the area.
The woodlands areas of the property hold good populations
of white-tailed deer and eastern turkey.
The area supports good numbers of raccoons,
muskrats, bobcats, beavers, and coyotes. Other furbearers,
including mink, and fox are also common.

Certain areas may be closed to hunting and fishing periodically. Target shooting is prohibited on all areas.
