|Leased Land Permit Required||No|
|Purpose||The property was previously part of Camp Joe T. Robinson before being deeded to the AGFC for conservation purposes. The SUA is intensively managed for bird dog training and field trials. It hosts many local and national events each year. The area also supports the AGFC's enforcement training center, an archery range and firing range, complete with rifle, pistol, skeet and trap shooting.
|Hunting Opportunities||Permit hunts are available for deer. A shortened small game season also allows hunters to take advantage of the excellent squirrel population on the property without interfering with field trials and other events. The area often has a few acres of dove fields planted each year as well.
|Management Practices||Mandy management practices are in use at Camp Robinson SUA, from food plots and special agricultural plantings to prescribed fire and selective thinning of overstory trees.
|Recreation Other Than Hunting||Camp Robinson SUA Woodlands Auto Tour |
