Also you have to have a permit for Sylamore the first 3 days and then it is closed until the 24th.
Take ya more than 2 days...I know this is an old thread, but it's the most informative I have found about the area. I plan to turkey hunt Sylamore and Buffalo National WMAs this Spring and want to get into some remote areas to find less pressured birds. Would it be feasible to kayak the Buffalo from where it meets the White down to the mouth of Big Creek? My hunt will be mid-April. I'm all for adventure, but I only have two days to scout and three to hunt, so I don't want to spend more time fighting the river than I do hunting turkeys.
Would it be any easier further upstream, such as putting in at Rush Landing? I'm not really concerned about the amount of paddling, climbing, or walking required. My only concern is maximizing my hunting time on low pressure ground. If it's quicker to park at a gate and walk 10 miles, I'll do that.I kayaked and motored that stretch last year and you'd have to be a heck of a kayaker to do that. I'm assuming you'd put in at Buffalo City. The other thing is you'd be doing a buttload of straight up climbing just to get to where you'd hear a bird. You aren't going to hear many while down in the Buffalo.
