Can anyone give me some advice on where to hunt/camp around Mena? I have been there to hunt but it was a few years ago. Does anyone have an update on the birds in that area?

The bird population is still down from what I experienced last year but there are birds up there to hunt only problem is their are allot of turkey hunters! The last 5 years or so the amount of hunters up there has probably doubled or tripled- allot more folks hunt turkeys now! Muddy Creek you can just about forget about it the 1st couple of weeks and the National forrest aint much better- Caney Creek gets allot of pressure to but if you got the mustard at least up there you can get back away from the crowds!

Yeah, there's a good spot about 15 minutes west of Mena. The AGFC hasnt managed to mess it up since they dont have jurisdiction there.
Seriously... I've been hearing that the hunting was much better on the OK side of mountains last year.

Rat- there are still allot of birds around Mena- you can get into some good hunting especially if you are willing to walk alil further! I actually think we had a good hatch last spring and things look encouraging! Go get you one of them Hill Hollering Hunkerheads!
