Public Hunting Offered at Detroit River RefugeSeptember 18th, 2012
Recently, the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge was opened for migratory bird hunting, upland game hunting and big game hunting for the first time since its establishment in 2001. The refuge, located 20 miles south of Detroit, offers over 6,000 acres of wetlands and other landscapes that provide unique hunting experiences.
In addition to the Detroit River Refuge, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is expanding hunting opportunities at 16 national wildlife refuges in 14 states as part of the 2012-2013 Refuge-Specific Hunting and Sport Fishing Regulations. The rule will provide diverse public hunting opportunities in accordance with the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997.
