12 hidden gems for hunting and fishing
USA Today
Looking for prime places to hunt and fish? If you’re like the majority of American sportsmen, you don’t own a well-stocked lake or a forest teeming with deer. But what you do have is access to the waterways, beaches, marshes, woodlands, plains, prairies and mountains that make up the National Wildlife Refuge System. Tending to the habitats of fish and wildlife on more than 150 million acres across the country, the federal system is made up of 561 refuges and 38 wetland management districts. Of those, you can hunt on 367 and fish on 309. In fact, opportunities to take game or catch fish exist in every state in the nation (except Hawaii).
