WMA Help

Postby tpj070 » Sat Dec 15, 2012 5:27 pm

Hey guys I am planning on making trip out to Louisiana from georgia after christmas and have done some research on some WMAs and am planning on trying public land since I don't want to pay for a guide. I would like a little guidance on which WMAs require the use of a 4wheeler to get to the blind etc. I found some WMAs then found out most people use 4wheelers and we dont have any so dont know if that would be feasible. We have two boats with MM and plan on bringing them but if we can find a good walk in WMA that might be a little cheaper than dragging the boats out there. I do not want specific spots but if you would like a private message would be much appreciated with some advice and I can ask you some questions I had there. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Im only familiar with the Northeast Louisiana area. Ouachita WMA has almost zero water currently, Russell Sage is solid flooded timber, but a pain for boating. Black Bayou is a solid bet, and you can launch from the trailer/don't need ATV. Boeuf State WMA, from what I hear, is solid for boating, but I haven't made it that way south yet. Best I got, and if you want my opinion: save your time and money. The hunting over here is crap right now.

@tpj070, wherever you decide to go use some common sense and make sure to read the regs for that particular location bc they all are different in some way. As a hunter that hunts all of the places mentioned above, I cant tell you how many times I have scouted several days and found a good spot then have someone walk in an set up 100yrds from me and call constantly thinking they will get birds to go somewhere completely un natural. You dont make many friends hunting that way. There are a ton of super nice guys around here that take their hunting very serious and would rather you join there hunting group that morning than for you to sit off in the bushed and try to compete with them. I would suggest to spend at least one day scouting and get out there early the next day. If someone comes close or beats you in there, be polite and suggest hunting together.
