Habitat Restoration Efforts at Macon County Conservation District

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.

Prescribed Fire

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

To maintain a balance between the white-tailed 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.
