Hampshire, 36,000 Acres of Public Hunting Land for Whitetail Deer, Duck, Predator, Exotics – Hampshire, Massachusetts
The Silvio O. Conte NWR is located within parts of four New Eangland states: New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. It is the only refuge to encompass an entire watershed.
The Nulhegan Basin Division in the far northern part of Vermont provides excellent “big woods” hunting for white-tailed deer, grouse, snowshoe hare, moose and black bear. Similar opportunities for hunting, as well as wood duck and wild turkey, are found further south in Vermont called the Putty Mountain Unit. All four Refuge Divisions in New Hampshire offer opportunities to hunt various game species. The largest division in New Hampshire, the Pondicherry Division, supports hunting for white-tailed deer, black bear, moose, ruffed grouse, snowshoe hare and waterfowl. Nine of the eleven Massachusetts Divisions are open to hunting. Refuge lands in Massachusetts offer a diversity of habitats, from grassland habitat in the lowlands of the Connecticut River Valley to steep sloped hardwood forest in the Berkshire Mountains. The refuge is best known for its small game and migratory bird hunting in the valley, and its white-tailed deer hunting in the upland hardwood forest of the Berkshires. In the state of Connecticut, the refuge is open to hunting on four divisions. Refuge lands range from tidal brackish marsh to upland hardwood. The most popular species hunted are white-tailed deer and migratory birds, but the refuge is open to all species hunted in Connecticut.
