Noxubee Refuge closure sits poorly with residents

October 9, 2013

The Sam D. Houston Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge has been closed for nine days because of the federal government shutdown. The refuge’s closure has affected many activities, including bow season for deer hunting. (Submitted photo)

The leaves are changing colors and the birds are still chirping at Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge, but nobody is there to see it.

The refuge is going on its ninth day of closure because of the government shutdown. Steve Reagan, director of the refuge, noted the traffic has been noticeably lighter on Bluff Lake Road since the closure.
