Anyone hunt this area or know of anyone who has? Was pretty wet out there earlier this year I hear, which was good and bad for hunting...sort of pushed the deer up and concentrated them in the higher areas. Guess they didn't close this area when the waters were rising. Anyway, I'm wondering whether or not it's worth getting a permit for here or not. Couple hours from the Benton area...maybe there's somewhere more worthwhile on public land that doesn't require a permit? Seems odd they still have all these permits lying around for Big Pine if it was worth going. Winona is nothing but does and I haven't ever hunted anywhere else around here.
