I've been putting in for a variety of drawn hunts for the past couple years and scored my first one this year: the Antlerless Deer Permit at Alabama Creek WMA. I haven't been out to that area yet, but plan to go on a first scouting trip in the next week or so. Any tips on this area? From what I've read it looks like a lot of hunters will be in that area. I'm thinking I may go spend a few days mid-week hunting a little later in the season since it is an antlerless tag anyway. Excited to get out and put in some work on this public hunt. Only other public hunting I've done was at Benbrook when I was drawn. Thanks for any advice!

Be sure and go to the Safety Orientation which is the first day listed on your Permit.

My son and I spent 9 days total there last season. We also won ADP's. Lots of tracks but no deer. I recommend a pre-season scouting trip and a handheld GPS. Pick 5 or 6 spots you like and mark them. We stayed on the southern side of the property as is was our first time.

Good Luck

Thanks for the tips, atexan. Planning a scouting trip! I'm going to give it a shot and see what I can do. Did you guys go with a tree stand or pop-up?

Thanks for the tip; the permit said nothing about a safety orientation. Giving them a call about it today.

Following this one. I drew an anterless tag, too. I don't believe there's an orientation required for this one but I could be wrong.
