Terrain is varied there Buddy Ro! You got your cane thickets, open hardwoods, palmetto bottoms and ridges (thick as hair on a dog's back), beautiful sloughs that empty into hiddens lakes, CRP, crop fields......you name it, it's there. Beautiful place!

what he said. The only thing you wont find on tensas is big hills or pine trees, the rest of it is pretty much there plus you wont hardley find a phone signal either. lol

Bring some 18" rubber boots. Right now the sloughs have some water in them. This can work to your advantage. You will be hunting in palmetto(varied heights) so bring a climber or lockon. The sloughs have water so a ground blind may be out of the question. The water will work to you advantage. I hunt Tensas alot and most of my setups will be facing a trail with a slough at least to my back. You can hear the deer when they hit the water or at least see the ripples if they hit the water quiet like. If you can, try to find a ridge or a cane thicket. This should be easy since the majority of Tensas is exactly that. Hunt the ridge between two sloughs or sit up on the edge of a cane thicket. Find where the deer are entering the thicket. If you can scout and do your homework, you should be successful in at least seeing some deer. They have already begun to scrape and rub pretty hard. ALOT of deer sign and its only the third week of season. Think this cool weather may be doing some good this year. Good luck to ya.

There is a good camp ground in Big Lake. it is private and it is called Big Lake Camp Ground. go figure huh. LOL but it is on crystal road. If you pull up a map of Big Lake you can see it it is almost in the middle of the reserve. The federal is only maybe 1/2 to a mile east of the camp ground.
