Hunting at Jackson Lake is very popular and for good reason; the park is located within the “Golden Triangle,” for migratory birds. Our Jackson Lake Hunting Brochure provides important information for planning your trip. Hunting is not allowed within 100 yards of designated campgrounds, trails or buildings.
Hunting for waterfowl, pheasant and upland bird hunting and archery deer is allowed for those with a tag for this unit. Waterfowl hunting can be decoyed along the shoreline and ponds for jump shooting. Upland birds can be found in all of the designated areas as well as rabbit, squirrel, pheasant and dove.
Archery deer hunting is allowed in all areas of the park, but hunters must park and check in with the office first. The most popular area is the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) lease property allowing hunting seven days a week.
For BOR land, park at the Inlet. Upland bird and small game may be hunted anywhere on the property. Archery deer is allowed from opening day through the end of the season. Waterfowl hunting is prohibited. All other designated hunting areas are open seven days a week.
