I have not hunted the grasslands or cooper but Iíve heard good things about both places. Iím pretty excited for the season to get here because I have pics of lots of deer, Iím just hoping Iím going far enough away from people that Iíll be able to harvest something. I think itís key to tag out before gun season opens up because after that I feel like your chances go way down for public land due to the gun hunters coming in and then all of the duck hunters. So Iím going to try to tag out as early as possible. Iíll sit all day on opening day if I have to lol

hope to run by ya one day, I'd like to meet up with some local hunters. I have heard some people around these parts and cooper can be kinda not so friendly.... Kinda aggravating, were all out there just trying to enjoy our time with nature and tag some deer. Going to run a camera out to a new spot my buddy told me about tomorrow morning.

Yeah man, itd be good to have a meet up with some of you local public land guys. I'm definitely aware of how unfriendly and inconsiderate people are around in this area. Last year I had parked at one of the entrances to a hunting spot right off a dirt road that runs through the WMA (I would have drove down but the wifes jeep wouldnt make it) and I got about halfway to where I was going to put up my stand and had a truck blow right through the area. Pi$$ed me off enough that I left. Everyone out there isnt like that though. I'm always down to lend a helping hand and if I get burned than I hope so be it. My conscious is clear

Ran out this evening and put a cam on corps in a spot my buddy told me about, hopefully will start tracking some bucks. Trail was highly used so hopefully I get a crap ton of pics.

Yeah lot of woods out there to know where I am also! Lol. It's public land unfortunately. Someone is bound to stumble on them. Wish ppl would just be like me and walk on by if I see a camera or stand. Hell if I am within camera range when I spot one I will typically wave at it lol.

You know, I haven’t come across one another camera (that I know of) scouting or hunting out there. I also haven’t come across one single other hunter while hunting. I’ve gotten 1 picture of a guy on my trail camera, and it’s where I was looking for hogs so no big deal. It may be public land but it really doesn’t seem to be used as much as one would think. Now that may be different this year, but I highly doubt it for some reason.

I will be out there this year and many more years PMWMA is a little hidden gem and i hope it stays that way for as long as it can eventually it will get more hunters out there. I got a buck 2 years ago and hope to harvest another one this season. I got to hang and gut this one in the ptwma camp ground. It was an amazing feeling.

That is awesome!! Have yet to get a buck but that’s alright! I enjoy the thrill of the chase! I do hope that I’ll be able to hunt the area for many more years. It’s a difficult place to hunt but it’s always an adventure

We all have to be careful around pat Mayse! Big foot and his family apparently live out in these parts. I seen it on youtube so it is definitely true!

Anyone else done any scouting? How about around Cooper or caddo grasslands? What do y'all think about most of pat mayse being prescribed burned this past year? Help or hurt this season?

Good luck to all of you guys stepping out tomorrow morning. I won’t be able to make it out there much if at all this year due to school taking up a lot more of my time than anticipated. Hunt safe and if anyone needs anything feel free to shoot me a PM. I’m not far from Pat Mayse at all

Hunted almost all day Saturday. Nothing came through except a big pig before sunlight. Squirrel Hunters came through around 10am prob 2-300 yArds from me shooting 22s... Not sure if they ruined the day or not. I'm assuming so though. Will be out again Saturday. Anyone else?

Saw a couple does and good group of hogs. Missed both shots on the piggies. I think hunting from a tree stand is the way to do it.

Anyone know if this area is prone to flooding? With all of the rain recently, trying to decide whether or not its worth it to trek out there this weekend.

It is very prone to flooding on the bottoms and some areas around the lake.
