I was hoping for a decent discussion about this refuge.. That was my intentions anyway. I hunt a lot of different areas where the deer really key in on certain food sources more in some places than they do in others & you can waste your time scouting some over the other. Some places have real good American beauty berries(French mulberries) some places they hammer the honey locust more, some really have a lot of persimmons or crabapples, a few they seem to prefer the red oaks over the white oaks, etc etc, I don't know what kind of terrain or food sources to really expect those deer to stay in most of the time, I was hoping someone hunts it & wanted to talk a little about this place since its so far for me to drive my scouting time will be limited versus the places I hunt around home, I know I have spent days scouting areas due to wasting time on low activity areas just because it was a new place that I had never been to before, I was kinda looking for the type of person that hunts it who is passionate about the outdoors & likes to see others do well, is it lots of water & sloughs or ridges, creek bottoms, briar thickets, do I need hip boots, waders or just plain knee boots. I was trying to get a little advice on what kind of places seem to pay out for people more, like things to key in on topo maps. If you talk to the rite person they can save you a lot of wasted time.

Gotcha... Make sense to me now and is a respectable request for help. Hopefully someone who hunts there will hook you up with some of those details. I thought about checking the place out but just can't get over the high dollar license. Good luck!

Thank you. Yes license is a hangup but I'm willing to pay I reckon.

Duck hunting can reduce the quality of your deer hunting. You can't leave the parking area until 4 AM. At that point, it's a mad dash to get to the top holes. Palmetto ridges, hardwoods, sloughs. When the water decides to get up, it can really get up. Like many of the lands in the NWR system, it once held high numbers of deer. They've been knocked down pretty good.
Not any better than the top NWRs in Louisiana. The one plus is that there is a statewide antler restriction. In that zone, most bucks will 3 years old to qualify.
