rofl Haven't seen no reports bout OSBWMA confused2 thar gotta be some one that's hunted it ... Never did the draw hunts, just archery deer-hogs, shotgun, rimfire,& blackpowder squirrel-hogs, & the 3month hog only any legal means.. Few early morning hog hunts in May...
It got primitive camp sites, cleaning station, do-it-yourself hunt... Usually has water in lower spots, used old tennieshoes held together with pvc glue or duck tape... It is some good hunting... flag

That was my bad... Think right now it's the hog hunts, any legal means, ends last day in March... Even the old atv trails are wet... They usdta send a booklet of all the WMA after buying the $48.00 public hunting permit, ask at Walmart... flag

My brother and I have a three-day hog hunt planned for that unit in a couple of weeks, we're gonna camp and hike, trying to spot-&-stalk. What's the visibility like out there? Is it really brushy, where you can only see short distances, or is it possible to see far out?

It gets thick in spots,bamboo,cane thickets whatever,but there is also lots of areas where the undergrowth is sparse. Sparse undergrowth is tough to deer hunt as there's not much to funnel the deer,but might be good for hog hunting.I've hunted the area a lot but not recently.

welcome ta the PLF, (Public Land Forum)...
This time of year the leaves off the trees so visibility should be good... As swampthing posted theirs áreas with lots of switch-cain, palmedo plants, & grassy weeds can get waist high... Can be tough turain ta move threw...
Lots of downed trees, can find hog & deer beds... Had pics of the hog beds found un the switch caín...
See that WF posted river is down, he has area only North side of Sabine River... He can give good info on stage of golosina... The whole 5,727 acres & every thing in between can look like a big lame, few areas little islands, if know were ta look...
Have found the spot & stalk worked best for me only hog hunts after archery done...
Any questions shoot a PM... The flooding pushes most most animals off, yet when goes down the hunting presser of surrounding privet land can make it a hot spot, cause of limited hunting... Best wishes... It does stay wet in areas... flag

wink Shhhhh, its a secret.... rofl Their might not be as many hogs as few years back... Have seen times when all along the old atv trails looked like some one plowed up & down both sides... During archery hunts wood set up off the trails at edge of thick areas litterly torn up... Never had hog come within bow range,.could hear em, see them from time ta time...
Hogs usualy move around more early-late hours, & night... Thats when majority of rooting, especialy along open trails is done... During the general hog, after the secreto is done that i do my walk-a-bouts, hitting the thick out of way areas, walking 5+ miles, had videos of hog beds & 1 were eased up on hogs while sleeping, in a thread, when they first put the public land section.. Walking is good exercise, my knee not able ta handle it know.. light back pack, cut down back, get back strap, peak hide around front $ back quarters, roll over & repete.... best way... although with threads bout poisoning, check meat first... Like land owners they want hogs gone too... stop in at office their, they got a Great Staff... Best wishes, & it does stay wet in areas... flag

cheers During hog only hunts i do lots of walking & hit the thick out of the way areas... Majority of the rooting up ya see is done at night... Years of archery hunting over out of way torn up areas teach ya that... Best luck i have is moving threw woods, finding fresh sign, then slow down eyes roaming...

Best wishes on hunt... flag
