confused2 Has any one been hunting it ? White Falcon been giving some reports on the river & his leases bordering the North... No reports of archery hunts, nor draw hunts... Do know Hoard Rd was closed ta traffic, couple of weeks ago do to flooding... The 3 month any legal means hog hunt should be a good one if river goes down... Hope all had a Happy Thanksgiving... Best Wishes & Safe hunting... As pappy says: keep your head held high & your powder dry ... rofl it can get wet down thar... flag

I went to OSBWMA today and the main gate was closed. I was hoping to scout and walk some before the next flood. Can you park at the gate and walk in when the gate is closed or does that mean no entry??? Know one was around in the offices to ask or information was not posted. Any suggestions??

Means it's closed. One of my buddies is a biologist on a WMA over that and when they shut it down for flooding they lock the gates. I wouldn't go in if the gate is locked.

Thanks Texassippi,

I didn't go in but I wanted to. Glad I didn't. Drove to some of the public boat ramps on the Sabine and the water was high and running swift before the rain started.

welcome ta texasHF texassippi ... 2cents Have meet several of the biologists at OSBWMA over the years... Tis bad with names though... They have a great crew working out thar... Have hunted it since it went WMA... The archery deer&hog & the 3month hog hunts for grillen & chillen... The first several years, a blind person could walk out thar & find were hogs tore up, just walk the ol ATV trails... Majority of it find at night, when no hog hunting allowed, scratch except coon hunt i think... Had came across 60+ hogs several times during the hog only hunts...
Gates closed tis for hunters safety just like safety Orange during gun hunts... That's low swamp land, have walked it when just bout every step tis wet, ya learn ta slid your feet, can be going threw knee deep water, just about ta dry ground, & up chest deep or worst at edge of gully... It is well managed, up Over the years have seen some awsome deer archery season & tis me go-to place for grillen & chillen hogs... Hogs been thinned out, few years back, would see buzzards roosting trees, & dead hog... As said they wanted hogs gone, squirrel, duck, coon hunters see hog, shoot & go on hunting.. Flooding pushes every thing ta higher ground... Right now think its Archery hunts... 2cents After the water go's down & deer & hogs start moving back in would be best... This is duck hunters dream... After deer season & hog only tis best for scouting hunting trip... As pappy says: keep your head held high & your powder dry ... flag

confused2 tis this in reference ta the post made by
texassippi Means its closed
cheers point well taken... As said, in my post, have hunted the OSBWMA since it opened & have chatted with many of the people working their... They are good crew, & are leaniant in few rules... One is parking, if ya not tearing up the place, they allow parking at beginning of some of the old ATV trails... The hogs they want gone... During the hog hunts, if water is high, they close roads so they not torn up & so if something does happen it protects them... Lot of duck hunters still hunt if roads are closed... One of reasons they extended west of Hoard Rd.. Right now think its deer & hog archery hunts... Several years back during general hog hunt, was down on main camping area.. they had gate closed just after, the road ta parking ta east... i was just pulling out of road ta west to the two parking areas, when one of biolagests was closing that gate & makeing sure every one was out... Drove around ta hoard & deer were heading ta higher ground... Their is areas were some high ground & can find hogs... As said, if ya do hunt, tis at own risk... It can be very dangures, have taken hogs buy boat during time frame of legal hog hunts... flag
