Hi y'all, I am new to this beautiful state and an avid small game hunter. I'm located up in NWA and I had a few questions about WMA's and public hunting. I think I am going to try my luck out at Hobbs state park and Ozark NF for some squirrel and maybe some coon, I guess my question is about parking and hunting this public land, is there anywhere I can get a map of the hunting grounds (so I don't end up on someone's land) and can you just park on the side of the roads (gravel and state) and just walk off into the woods? Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I hope to become an active member in this small game hunting community!

I used to get maps at the Forestry Commission in Little Rock. I am sure there is an office up in your neck of the woods.

I mainly hunt WMAs and have never been bothered by either parking in a pull off spot or at the end of dead end road. Like Luckless said don't block roads or gates and you will be fine. Hey welcome to the state and the best Hunting and Fishing Message Board Forum in the WHOLE FREAKIN WORLD!!!!

Welcome I have no experience with that WMA, but as other have stated parking about any where out of the way of other seems to be ok. Heck even people parking in areas they shouldn't never seem to get in any trouble, but that is more of a turkey season thing blocking roads.

Welcome to the forum. Most public land in the hills you can just pull over so you aren't blocking the road and go. On the Flat Land Muddy WMAs they have some designated parking lots to make it easy for the GW to round up all the duck hunters and write them tickets.
