I was 3 seasons ago and found a growing operation. Take a sidearm with you. Just my 2 cents.

lots of locals and poachers in that area, so deer are hard to find there.

Went last year. The sulphur river runs through part of the place and if theres been rain, it'll be muddy.
I don't remember my unit number but I simply spent a few hours walking around to find deer sign and then setup on some trails/rubs/etc. We weren't allowed to bait with corn but I had a small buck come to some doe estrus scent.
Another hunter who was successful got his buck by rattling.

It shows atv use for disabled hunters but I see no trails marked for atv use like on other WMA's maps. Does anyone have any info on these trails?

Im not aware of any marked ATV trails. There are equestrian trails and other (hiking/hunting) trails within each unit, so Im sure ATV use will be allowed only on established trails. If I recall they go over this during orientation on the draw hunts, or you can call the park office and ask the staff.
