Anyone here ever hunt Shelby Forest?

Postby WTN10 » Sun Nov 27, 2011 6:30 pm

I've only been hunting Arkansas. Looking to try and hunt Shelby this weekend as Arkansas season is closed for the moment. Not looking for Honey Holes, just a few questions about the area, mainly whether you need a boat to get in or not and, if not, the best way to get in.

It has beed a few years for me huntting there but you may need to check out this old post.

If we get rain there are a lot of holes to hunt. But I have seen it where there was no water in there at all.

Best to go a look around and find 3 or 4 spots you like and get there the night before (joke). It use to fill up fast and everyone shooting everyones ducks.

Good luck.

Thanks! I can't imagine water problems right now. I'm kind of sick of the rain at this point. :biggrin:

Eagle lake in Shelby Forrest is all I've ever hunted and it's always packed.
