Anyone ever tried hunting hunting on Frog Bayou WMA south of Alma? How was the hunting?

Really? It seems like a great area, I'm just worried about the crowding issues. I'll probably be down there on the 17th opening weekend to get a feel of things. I'm assuming that will be the craziest it ever gets, so I can gauge if it's worth it or not the rest of the season. May need a hunting buddy or two for opening day. And I'll probably go down and scout next weekend.

Patrick is the man to take orders from. If he says its worth it, it is.


On a side note. Go on south another little bit and go to Ed Gordon or Galla creek

Did you ever end up finding any better options? And it's good to know that I'm not the only one

The reason you're having trouble finding information on good spots in NWA is because there really aren't any. Sad to say, but you already have all the info to the decent areas. I've hunted up here for four years now, and it is hard hunting! Frog Bayou does have some ducks. Best rule of thumb is to make sure you are there when new birds are flying in. The crowds IMO are actually a good thing because it keeps the birds stirred up. The best mornings I've had over there were when it was really crowded. It's best to get a boat and get out on the lake. Once the birds leave the bayou, they generally don't go back. The last piece of advice is to pray for cold temps! Once the farm ponds freeze over, the birds will congregate on the creeks and rivers.

I may actually end up just bringing a boat up here. I may be able to get a little john boat. Not in great shape but it'll float
