What's been yalls experience with them? I've got 6 points . Gonna go on one this season to put some extra meat in the freezer.
That first fdr hunt was hit or miss. The deer seemed to be congregated nearest to Callaway gardens. We were waiting on one guy to come out to check him and he shot so many times we thought he might need help. He came walking out a little while later and when we asked how many he had killed he said “I don’t know, between 5 and 7” ? he had shot so many the blood trails intermixed. There was a picture floating around of his Toyota/ranger type truck FILLED with does and tailgate dragging. It was awesome ?Fdr was supposed to be great when it opened. I didn't even see a deer. Weather wasn't cooperating either though. Panola was good
I'm leaning towards Panola or Mistletoe right now.Hunted Hard Labor in 2010 and I shot 2.
Hunted again in about 2015 and my buddy shot 2.
They give free golf to anyone shooting a pig.
I can’t walk much now but could meet you there and show you some spots. You can’t rent a cabin or camp site until after you are drawn.
I was going to apply for Russell, I live about 30 minutes from there, I thought I’d just camp the whole week hunt deer the 2 days and fish the other 3 days. But the campgrounds and all the cottages are already reserved for the hunt. I bet people already reserved the spots and if they don’t get drawn they’ll cancell.
The last I heard at russell they closed the park, golf course and boat ramp, but they left the campgrounds and cottages open, that was a few years ago, they may have changed. I might give them a call.I don’t know how they do at Russel but at Hard Labor the entire park is closed for the two days of the hunt. Campground, golf course, lakes, everything. Campground shows as booked full up but not really.
