Default Pine Log WMA

I didn't hear much shooting this morning and only saw 2 other trucks in Pine Log for the morning hunt. I was covered up with turkey and 2 coyotes (to far for the X-Force) to reach them. Anybody see anything and if so what time were you seeing movement? I had to get down at 9:30 to make the wife happy.

So, it is closed for archery as well? I know there is a quota hunt in Novemeber which i was drawn for. I guess I need to double check all the regulations. To me it doesn't make much sense to have a WMA that you can't hunt during the majority of the season. Does anyone have any clarification?

For your clarification, under the the Deer Hunting sub-forum there is a sticky up top that is the Regulations for 2011-2012.

Yeah, I saw that post from yesterday. At least all i killed was TIME. I don't know if I understand why they structure the seasons the way they do at Pine Log. Seems like a waste of 15,000 acres if it is only open for bow season and the 2 hunts each year. What do they use the land for when hunting is not allowed? Edited to Remove Profanity ----Edited to Remove Profanity ----Edited to Remove Profanity ----Edited to Remove Profanity ----, they have at least 20 or more horse back riders there on any weekend and they don't have to buy a $19 WMA permit. Does anyone know a reason for this?

It was open for hunting hogs with archery equipment. So you've got that going for you.

Call the warden to fine yourself for bad info. Not open for that either!

Seriously though, ignorance of the law doesn't hold water. Download a copy of the hunting regs or pick up a copy. If all else fails ask questions. There are people here that would be more than happy to answer your questions.

Pnome, thanks for the info!!! Thats right everyone, I was hunting "Small Game" this past saturday morning. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I still don't understand why it would not be open during statewide seasons though? Does anybody have an answer to this? From the quota numbers they have put up for the year, they are looking to be about 745 deer short judging from the amount of deer that have been signed out. I can't imagine that during the short quota hunt and gun hunt in December that they will get anywhere close to the number of deer they want killed there.

Because if they left it open for the whole season to anyone and everyone they would run out of deer. Alot of WMA's are like that... open for bow hunters and then two or three quotas for gun hunters

I think you're misreading.

That feral hog section only applies on the dates specified. "Aug. 12-14, Jan. 13-15"

This does apply: "and with small
game weapons during small game dates" Archery gear is legal small game weapons.

You can hunt and kill hogs on Pine Log during small game dates, you are just restricted to small game weapons.

Pnome is right, oldenred is wrong.


You can go in there w/ a scoped muzzleloader as well, unless they've changed the small game regs.

Is a .223 considered a .22 cal?

Ok, so the only time I can hunt WMA's for big game or hogs with big game rifles is quota hunts.

Again, I am sorry for newb questions.
