The fall is the time to hunt for deer and feral hog on Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area. The best conditions for hunting deer are when water levels are down in the creek but not so low as to make travel by boat impossible. In the spring, turkey hunts are popular and usually yield excellent results. Paddling is best during high water, which usually occurs in late July, August, and September, but which may also occur following winter cold fronts. Fisheating Creek is an excellent place to view wildlife year-round. Warblers are abundant during spring and fall migrations. In April and May, swallow-tailed kites nest and raise their young all along the creek.

Hunters must comply with all hunting regulations
