All project lands except the developed public use areas and land around the dam and other project structures, are open to public hunting. Principal game species found in the area are whitetail deer, bobwhite quail, turkey, mourning dove, grey and fox squirrel, and cottontail rabbits. Due to the absence of public roads, access to some areas is difficult. For the most part, direct access is afforded by the public use area roads and timber roads that are open to the public. Some of the more remote areas are accessible only by boat.
