This has been a public hunting area for a long time. It use to be called Baldwin State Forrest. It's on my hit list this year to if I can find time. The area is split into 2 different opening dates so be careful.

hunted bartram alot of last season and know that wma pretty well now. To be honest not much to see out there as far as game. Also the forestry service owns the lands and is always doing burns on the wma.

Default RE: Bartram

Unfortunately Baggingbandeddrakes is right. Forestry service does prescribed burns consistently and tears tractors throughout the property on occasion. Also some hippie runners and birdwatcher types are bound to run through the woods in front of your stand as its a popular "nature walk" area for the liberal college students and professors.

I've seen plenty of deer on the roads surrounding the place to know they are there but the fact that it has developed walking trails bothers me a little bit.........not enough to keep me away though. Bream reaper are you hunting it this year? I like the "bow only" areas better during gun season. Little river archery area down the road is only 1200 acres but seems to get more pressure than 40,000 acre Cedar Creek during the bow season.

Would love to see pics of any harvests from Bartram this past season. Btw, controlled burning is EXcellent for most all wildlife. I'm looking forward to spending some time in these woods!
