What would you guys say would be the best WMA for archery hunting? I have been to a few but not recently. What about State parks?

I would look at WMAs close to you and focus on ones that only have sign in/check in gun hunts. Theres a few like that near me so the deer don't get as pressured as others. Just a thought.
DNR website has a map of all WMAs
Just my advice to you, I wouldn’t focus on the archery only places, to be honest I see far more deer and have had a lot more buck encounters on WMAs where they rifle hunt.. don’t worry about the label of archery, gun, muzzleloader. Just find where the deer are and hunt it
If you only want to hunt archery-only hunts, here's how 2019 fared. There are a couple of quota hunts included on this list and it only includes WMAs with harvests of 10 or more. FYI 2019-2020 archery results.png
