NOTICE: Over the recent weeks Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Tarrant Regional Water District have continued to make progress on wetland repairs. Pumps are currently working to fill a portion of our wetland units. We expect increased, but still limited, water availability from now until the end of early teal season. We appreciate your understanding while we continue to make repairs to the wetland system. Please feel free to contact staff at 903-389-7080 if you have any further questions.

Portions of the WMA may be closed for hunting activities. Please call ahead before you visit.

Registration is required.

Hunting Permitted

Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) have rules and regulations for hunting not required on private property. Hunters must possess a valid hunting license, the appropriate tags and stamps, as well as the proper public hunting permit. Permits include: Annual Public Hunting Permit (APH), computer drawn Special Permits, and the Regular Permit, which allows daily small game hunting on some areas. Hunters 16 years of age and younger are not required to have a hunting permit, but must have a hunting license and be supervised by a licensed, permitted adult, 18 years of age or older. Hunters and non-hunters must wear hunter orange during daylight hours at any time when firearm hunting for any species is authorized on the unit (except turkeys, waterfowl, and dove). For more details see the rules page for this WMA, the Summary of Fishing and Hunting Regulations and Public Hunting Lands Information and Maps.

Public hunting is permitted for white-tailed deer, feral hog, squirrel, mourning dove, waterfowl, woodcock, gallinule, snipe, rabbits, and hares. All deer hunting, including archery hunts, is by special permit only. All APH hunters must register at a designated entry point. Pickups and four-wheel drive vehicles are recommended for traveling in some of the more rugged areas of the WMA.
