Upland Game Hunting
The Macon County Conservation District offers upland game hunting at Friends Creek Conservation Area’s Upland Game Management Area. These single-day hunts generally run from early November through December.
When settlers established farms and villages, they snuffed out the natural process of fire. Since 1978, the Macon County Conservation District has used prescribed burns to restore conservation areas.
Deer Herd Management
White tailed deer are an important part of Macon County’s natural areas. But in many of our conservation areas, their numbers are so high that habitats are becoming unbalanced. To maintain a balance between the deer population and other species the Conservation District has initiated a limited archery hunting program.
Exotic Species Removal
Exotic species are those plants and animals that are from somewhere other than Macon County. Some of these exotics are very invasive and take over.
