From archery season in October to spring turkey season in April, Box-R WMA offers ample opportunities for hunting deer, turkey, feral hog and small game. Hiking, biking and horseback riding, are likely to be most pleasant on non-hunting days in the fall through the spring. Paddling can be done year-round but heat, thunderstorms and biting insects can make summer visits unpleasant. The fall and spring seasons are best for birding and for observing new spring leaves and colorful fall foliage on the deciduous gum trees, red maples and cypress trees.

Hunters must comply with all hunting regulations
