Thing is everyone and there dog wants to hit south sulphur during this 2 weeks, even worse when they close cooper wma and pat mayse wma the same weekend so everyone must of flocked down there. We went yesterday morning and there were 8-9 vehicles there. group of pigs, no deer though. Wish I could hunt it during the week but That won't be happening.

after hearing all of this i dont think i will give the South Sulphur unit a go. I think i might head a litter further north and see what's going on at Lake Fannin (archery only), Tawakoni was pretty good, we didnt shoot anything but saw quite a few deer in the morning moving around (a couple of GIANTS on camera too during the mornings).

I would guess that if you went during the week you would probably be ok. That's why I don't mind hunting public land too much. I do 90% of my hunting during the week. Very seldom run into anyone.

I think I will stick to army corps this weekend. We need it to get COLD and stay cold the rest of the year! I hate this warm weather.

Have you hunted Lake Fannin before? I have been really thinking of trying it myself. bow only for like 10 years now? I could be wrong on the time frame. But, I can only imagine that there might be some really good deer back there along the red river.

You better call about Fannin. I called about a month or so ago and was told that the entire area is closed off and not open for hunting. Perhaps I am wrong? Which unit of Twok? North, south, or west?

what reason did they give for the closure? that bites but also is good if they decide to reopen it next year.

Didn't have one, just said it is closed. I think it has been for a couple years now. I think it only opened up for a short stint. I could be wrong. You should call and report back with what they tell you.

You can hunt there. It just has to be archery for deer and pigs. Shotgun for small game.

Ok, a buddy of mine said he heard it was open and drove down this morning and not a single vehicle was in the lot. I bet the deer are pushed out of there now with all the traffic.

Let's get this one going again.

Anybody else going to be out there this week. Should be good after being closed for over a week. I plan on being back out Thursday and/or Friday.

Unless something drastic happens, I'll be hunting all day tomorrow. Probably come out just long enough to go into town and get lunch. If yall are up there and want to try and meet up, just shout.
