Waterfowl hunting is permitted on the lake in season. Approximately 6,075 acres of state and federal land surrounds Lieber State Recreation Area. This includes Owen-Putnam State Forest. Squirrel and deer are the most popular game harvested but wild turkey, raccoon, and fox are also taken.

Cagles Mill Lake allows the use of bonus antlerless deer tags.
Trapping opportunities are available through a sealed bidding process for specific trapping units. Contact the property office in late summer for details on the bidding process.
All hunters must register and sign the waiver of liability at one of the hunter sign-in stations on the property. Hunter sign-in is mandatory, and failure to sign in and out properly may result in a fine. All game taken must be recorded on a required one-day hunter permit card that is carried with you as you hunt and turned in at the end of the day. At some properties, the card must be returned to the same hunter sign-in station where the waiver of liability was signed; please look for that requirement when you check-in. Take and use only one card per day. This system provides valuable wildlife management information.
