The Anacua Unit has two separate land sections comprising 222 acres in Cameron County, the most southern county of Texas. The Anacua Unit is part of the Las Palomas WMA. The unit was originally farm fields, but now consists primarily of reforested white-winged dove breeding habitat. There are designated hunting areas for doves in both the north and south sections of the unit. The closest complete commercial facilities are available in Harlingen.
