Long, narrow and nearly level, the 934 acre Pettigrew Wildlife Management Area in Caroline County offers a broad range of opportunities. Hunting, hiking and it's diversity of upland and wetland habitats appeal to an array of outdoor interests. There are two designated parking areas. Trails near the center of the area and along the eastern perimeter provide access to the area by foot. Hunting includes deer, dove, turkey and squirrel which are the most abundant game species. Quail, woodcock and ducks are present in small numbers. Ware Creek offers limited fishing opportunity for herring during spawning runs in the nearby Rappahannock river, and for largemouth bass and crappie.
