Shouldn't have a worry about GW if you aren't up to no good.

I finally got my permit and now I am waiting on my blaze orange junk to arrive.

Does area 2 & 3 get a lot of foot traffic?

It is very muddy at area 2 with lots of coon tracks. I was actually pretty surprised at the water level.

I've seen lots of activity on area2, and easy to access. Area 4 was a bust... not much of anything but water. I'm going to head back to the northend of the lake were there are loads of hogs.

Nitehunter01, I took evans road to area 2 and took the access road south and there was a LOT of mud and you can only get so far since there is a creek bed full. It seems like Erwin Park and takes some time to dry up.

I've mainly hunted areas 11 and 12. Always see lots of tracks but never any pigs. I will say this though. I went out there one day after a rain storm. It was so flooded I almost got stuck just parking.

Haven't ever had issues getting on pigs at Lavon. Mix creep and corn 1:4 ratio in my feeder and they come in like clockwork.

nitehunter01: Noted. It was pretty muddy and there were a couple of times I almost busted it and became part of the landscape.

If anyone is going out there and wants to meet up to do some hunting, just let me know.
