Site Description: The nearly 3,000-acre Wildlife Management Area is predominately mature hardwoods and thickets with occasional fields located along the banks of Tims Ford Reservoir. 

Hunters should be aware that some portions of Owl Hollow Mill WMA are near private housing and subdivisions and restrictions would apply to hunt in those areas for safety purposes.

Owl Hollow WMA is part of  The East Highland Rim Prairie and Barrens Conservation Opportunity Area 

Wildlife to Watch: General woodland birding is excellent with old fields providing habitat for sparrows, towhees, and warblers.

Because of the location, around the reservoir, Bald Eagles and ospreys, as well as various Waterfowl are common. Deer and turkeys are fairly abundant.
