Rhode Island Hunting & Fishing Regulations

RI State Hunting and Fishing Regulations

While it is the smallest state and not well known for its hunting, Rhode Island does provide opportunities for hunters in pursuit of white-tailed deer, turkey, waterfowl, dove, woodcock, snipe, rails, pheasant, fox, and coyote. With the Atlantic Ocean to the east, bird hunters can try their chance at sea duck from late November to late January.

With numerous lakes and ponds in the north, and the Atlantic in the east, Rhode Island has plenty of options for both freshwater and saltwater anglers. At only 48 miles long, Rhode Island boasts an impressive 400 miles of shoreline with common catches that include striped bass, black sea bass, bluefish, king mackerel, tautog, and American shad.
