Why does everyone give Allatoona WMA a bad rap. If you're willing to walk its not bad.

A friend and I started hunting it last year. He got a 7 pt. I see deer everytime I go.

Best to use a boat to access the WMA IMO. I use to hike back in there when it was a big chunk of woods. Once they lost the big lease it's pretty much just Corp land around the lake and creeks.

Lookin' at the regs and it says General Hunt: Oct 24-Dec 4. Dec 26-Jan 1.

This is Buck only right? Reason I ask is because all other WMAs say either Buck Only, or either sex whatever days.

Thanks/

Should have had one this morning. Went for my gun a little too soon and he saw me. He was a small 4 or 6 with a limp. Back in the stand though. Maybe they will move this afternoon.

From what I have gathered, Allatoona is pressured. Not to many "honey holes". I could be wrong.

You can access some areas right off of 20. The bad part is there a lot of people in those spots. There are some areas I have been with no to little hunters. I would like to explain where but its a bit hard.

There are two cemeteries I haven't seen many people. Im not sure why that is though.

went out driving around today and have a few questions... going down wilderness rd is the entrance to the day use area within the wma boundries. kinda seemed like it but not sure. has anyone hunted this area. just a little down from the day use entrance is a road thats blocked by a gate and on one side says wma boundry and other side says safe zone. am i correct that you can hunt the road down on the left side but not right??. gonna check them out a little more later and see if worth setting up over there or maybe trying off one of the creeks on 20.
