I am new to WMA hunting, and I haven't come up with much info on where I can hunt at, or where I need to go.

Can someone please point me in the right direction, anything specific I need to know (other them whats in the book)?

Obviously I will stop by the office sometime next week during business hours, but I am getting antsy to do squirrel hunting since I lost my private land spot in gravette.


It seems pretty ridiculous that they fail to provide more information to new hunters, I have been looking all over the web for some indication, but I have come up empty.

Thanks for your help.

I have read the book....my concern it where to go...do I just pull off to the side of the road and head into the woods as long as its WMA property and located far enough away from campsites, etc.

And the book is rather vague on details...

Thank you so much, I called them this morning and the gentleman that answered didn't have a clue, said he would check and return my call but no luck there.

I guess I will have to make a trip to rogers in the AM before work

I did manage to have a good day yesterday at the Mark Twain National forest in MO, only cost $11 for a Daily small game permit....bagged 5 fat reds in a couple hours...I did manage to scratch the crap out of my xterra getting back in there, but it was fun.

Thanks for the info, I'm really not surprised there isn't much to hunt up here after seeing the interactive map on agfc.com....but I can settle for mark twain since I don't have a boat.
