It is supposed to have 12,000 acres but it looks like 80% is the reservoir and you can hunt the shore area. Since it is close to San Angelo I was wondering how crowded it gets and if there are any deer. Is the land dry or wet? You are limited to a shotgun with slugs- is it bush country? Thanks.

Check out Texas Bowhunter Forum. I have never been to hunt but have fished it. I have heard it gets stupid with too many people but its public land hunt, right? so yeah

I turkey hunted the WMA this year. It is dry land, not swamp. I did run up on 2 does and watched them for awhile. This was on an old dirt road that goes along the boundary fence, otherwise I wouldnt have ever seen them. The area is T H I C K in mesquite.

This is the best WMA TX deer hunt by far. Yes it does get crowded depending on when one goes. My plan this year is to start with archery only season and weekdays. People ride ATVs everywhere so they can become a nuisance. The positive side is baiting is allowed and both buck and doe can be taken without antler restrictions. (check regs for upcoming year as they can change.)
The first two years I went the lake was more of a river. It has really come up in the last three years but the areas are still there to hunt. Most of the terrain is flat scrub with mesquite trees. The deer are there. Lots of sign to be found. I shot a doe but hit it low and never recovered. I was using a Mossberg 20 gauge slug barrel on a pump shotgun. Problem was I spent a fortune on trying to find a consistently accurate slug that worked with the gun. I since upgraded to a savage 220 rifled slug bolt action gun. I am more than good to 100 yards now no problem using Federal copper 3" slugs and can keep then consistently in the bullseye.

I know I should check the reg's but on "slug guns" can you can a scope on the gun? I have a mossberg 500 and got a slug barrel for it with a cantilever that you can put a scope on. On stands- are there any trees to hang one or are tripods best? Thanks.
