I agree with steve, try to plan your hunts during the week, and stay on the eastern side. Don't rule out hunting the rivers, and read through the AGFC.com to see if "extra" permits are needed. I know this year, 16 WMA's have to have a special free permit called "Sweet Sixteen." Also, some WMA's have motor restrictions where you can't run that 40HP. If you got a good GPS and feel comfortable navigating around in big timber, I would check out Hurricane WMA, it has a 50HP limit. If your not as comfortable, I would check out Rainey Brake even though its smaller it has a 25HP limit, but it also has a launch to the Black River right there if you want to hunt it. The biggest thing for you is to do as much scouting as you can regarding maps, rules, boat access/launches before you get here, and then do actual scouting for couple days when you do get here.
