Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area offers year round opportunities for outdoor recreation, although horses are not permitted during periods open to hunting. Small, high-quality hunts for deer and feral hog are held on several weekends in the fall. Turkey hunts are held on three weekends in March and April.

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 the wildflowers that bloom in the fall and spring and the butterflies they attract. Many varieties of ferns, bromeliads, and orchids flourish here.

Hunters must comply with all hunting regulations
