You don’t have to be this guy to be safe during hunting season.


Bird hunting is a traditional past time as well as a source of high quality food for families in Maine. Hunting is a permitted use at the refuge and so we strongly encourage all visitors to wear at least two items of blaze orange. For your safety and convenience, we’ve provided links below to the USFWS Sunkhaze specific regulations as well as a link to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife summary of law changes in 2015.

We do love a good story. Share your stories and photos with us on Facebook.
