Default West Point WMA!?

Hey guys, this is my first new thread. I was wondering if anyone on here knows of or hunts on the West Point Lake WMA. I hear they have turkey, hogs, and deer, but I can't find anyone who's actually been on it. I live in Austell, up here in Cobb County, and I can't find anyone to help. Even if anyone knows of any public or owns any private land near me, it would be very appreciated.

I hope to take turkey in March, and then hogs if I can find them. Thaks for any help you can give me.

It's been awhile, but I have hunted West Point. The deer hunting is good with a good chance at a trophy buck,never saw any hogs though. You might also want to take a look at Paulding Forrest also,it's not far from you either.

No hogs there. There are some big bucks there, but I would try Paulding Forest for deer. West point has good turkey and waterfowl hunting.

You can find some awesome hunting on West Point, one of the best wma's in the state for turkey and deer. You can find some deer on PF in the narrow steep funnels that arent short pines and but the turkey hunting's tough. Never seen many hogs at either, try pine log for hogs, and for turkey to come to think of it, lotta birds on that place as well. Good Luck.

I hunt West Point for Turkeys only. I see a lot of deer sign, but never find the time to get down there during deer season.
The two toms in my avatar were taken on West Point last season.

Thanks, all of you, for helping me clear some of that up. I just got a Remington 870 Express Magnum brand new for $125, and I would hate to have to keep it from shooting a turkey this year.

I have hunted West Point WMA every year since 1975. There are plenty of deer and turkey. The deal is, it is a quality buck WMA and you'll have to pass on most deer seen. The east side(Franklin side) of the river has the larger bodied deer. I have taken more deer at West Point than any other single place I have ever hunted. I will hunt West Point every year I can.

If you have a boat, I would also suggest checking out the Corps land around west point....I've actually had more success there over the past few years than I have on the WMA. Here's a link, and the permit is only $10.
