Default Ouachita mountains Arkansas??

A buddy and I are kicking the idea around of going to the Ouachita mountains in Arkansas to bow hunt next year. We'd be hunting public land and neither of us has been. Does anyone have any experience or advise on this area?? We'd be hunting deer.
Thanks in advance

Listen carefully for the sounds of the woods, but especially listen carefully for the banjos!

I went to Lake Catherine state park and camped and hiked for a couple days about a month ago. It’s just outside Hot Springs. Hiked in the Ouachita National Forest. I didn’t see much deer sign but asked one of the park rangers about the hunting. She said lots of people deer hunt around there. I’m more interested in the turkey hunting though. She said not many people turkey hunt it. She also said they see a few bears every now and again.

I hunted there a few years in college. Never saw one big enough for me to kill, not even ones every one else shot and it seemed like there was a tree stand every 100 yards. Buy a climber where you can just get in any tree.
