You will need a boat to get to the better places. I have killed turkey on COE land at Mayse but not any deer or hogs but they are there. If you have a boat and RV all the better. You can camp on the COE parks around the lake and hunt out of the boat.

I wouldn't hunt COE land with them if your worried about them getting shot is what that means, I know some hog doggers lost 2 dogs in some of the fort worth district land this season.

Not to give up any honey holes but where might one have the best of luck hunting turkeys this spring?

The turkey population around Pat Mayes is down. I have not heard any gobblers for the last 3 years crappie fishing in the spring around the lake. The years before that I would hear or see several every year. That being said there are still birds there. Visser Creek would be a good place to look. They still have the draw at the Pat Mayse WMA also every year.

Is Pat Mayes open to the public? No pub hunting permit required?

You have to purchase the APH to access Pat Mayse. Also, turkey hunting is closed except for draw hunts

Pat Mayes is divided into WMA on the west end of the lake around the Sanders Creek area. The east end and north side are COE land with no AHP required just your normal hunting license. The south side of the lake is Camp Maxey which is pretty much for Texas military members and their family and a few other special groups.

I was just trying to answer a question in the briefest and simplest way I could with enough info to get a point across. So I figured with the statement "a few other special groups" would more than suffice that it's not open to the general public. I'm not a know it all but I am familiar with all these areas being I've lived here for nearly fifty years and hunted all these surrounding areas with the exception of Camp Maxey.
