Pheasant, rabbit, and deer hunters like Red Willow's tall native grasses, brushy canyons, and shrub and tree plantings for wildlife. The area has good populations of pheasants and both whitetails and mule deer. Pheasant hunters will also put up an occasional covey of quail, and cottontails are plentiful in the draws and plum thickets.
Waterfowl blinds may be put up along the lake, away from the recreation areas, but they are occupied on a first-come basis and cannot be reserved for the builder. Duck hunters can do well on mallards, other dabblers, and some species of divers before the late-season freeze-up. On occasion, Canada geese can even be lured into range by decoys.
