I got drawn for alazan bayou wma for GDES and wanted to see if anybody knows where I can find a map of the compartments really would be appropriate

Try this # 936) 569- 8547. Bob Baker or Ron Randle might email you a compartment map. Good luck on your hunt !

I thought Alazan was stands, not compartments. No sure where I heard that though, so may be wrong/

Alazan is usually divided into 15 compartments, 7 or 8 in the WMA and 7 or 8 in the property next door. If given a choice, I would hunt the adjoining property since the deer there are not so pressured and spooky.

I'm jealous! I put in for that and didn't get it. I bow hunt out there a lot and they do have a box stand on the highline but I am not sure how they decide how they divide it up.

Sounds like I'll be first in line to pick my compartment I'm thinking I'll pick something in the experimental forest don't think I can bait in there but thinking deer won't be as pressured what time does the rut peek in that area normally?

No baiting and yes if you can get on the SFA forest I would for sure. From what I have seen over there you will want a climbing stand for sure though. The deer have been moving a lot more of the past week or two but its still pre rut. From my experience about 8-15 days into november action gets really crazy.

Ok I'll be there from the 1-5 so maybe a little early but I'll still be hunting so it's great sure appropriate the help I'm about 8 hours away so going in pretty much blind and can't find anything online about hunting the SFA forest

Pretty sure I talked to you Facebook as well. Was the buck by chance behind a doe?

I'll be out there this weekend looking for a doe. Never hunted there so it will be more of a scouting trip than hunting. If anyone has any pointers feel free to PM and let me know. I wasn't expecting to have already killed all of my bucks elsewhere this early.

Solo, you do know this is the perfect scenario for a big boy to walk out on you ?
