    75 million in the state alone. I check them out around me, because as you say they are mostly lowlands, and prime winter habitat for many of the species I like to eat. There are very limited hunts, often none, the purpose of refuges isn't to provide us a place to hunt but rather to provide a place for wildlife to multiply. Of late they have allowed more hunting particularly birds, in an effort to make the refuges more accessible for the enjoyment of more people.

    I've heard CA has a lot of hunting at them. But then hunters in CA are a vanishing species themselves.

    I'd trade my firstborn to be allowed to hunt big game at any refuge in CO, that's how rare it is.
