Hunting Plan at Morgan Brake National Wildlife Refuge - 1979

Metadata Updated: January 29, 2020

The principal resident game species are fox and gray squirrel, white-tailed deer, eastern wild turkey, raccoon, and swamp and cottontail rabbit. Furbearing species of the area include beaver, nutria, raccoon, muskrat, mink, otter, weasel, spotted and striped skunk, and bobcat. Non-game wildlife is also abundant on the refuge with the diversity and interspersion of habitat types creating an edge effect beneficial to wildlife. There is a small population of American alligators on the refuge; however, there is considerable habitat available for this endangered species~ Although neither the southern bald eagle nor the American peregrine falcon have been observed in the Morgan Brake area in recent years, both are winter migrants of the Yazoo' Basin. Sloughs, streams, beaver impoundments and other refuge wetlands provide only a limited amount of fish habitat except during high water periods when concentration of fish may be high in suitable areas. Species may include any of the fishes common to the Mississippi or Yazoo Rivers.
