Spirit of the Wild Wildlife Management Area offers year round opportunities for outdoor recreation. Small, high-quality hunts for deer, feral hog and small game are held on several weekends in the fall. Turkey hunts are held on three weekends in March. Horses are not permitted during periods open to hunting.
In the fall, winter and spring, temperatures are usually pleasant. These are the best times to hike, bike and horseback ride and to see a variety of migratory birds. Butterfly and plant enthusiasts will appreciate fall blooming wildflowers and the many species of butterflies that they attract.
Hunters must comply with all hunting regulations
