Hunting on State Land in Houston County?

6 posts in this topic

I have found 3 or 4 WMA's on the DNR website, but when I look at a plat book for Houston County, there is a ton of 'State Land' that is not listed as a WMA. What is this state land considered? Can you hunt on it....how do you get an official listing of where it is?

Thanks.

Most of the state land in Houston county is state forest land which I believe you CAN NOT hunt on.

From the DNR website:

"Hunting, trapping, and fishing in state forests is allowed during the appropriate season and with the correct license. State game refuges within state forests are closed to hunting unless listed as open."

Well then I would say go for it!! I am actually glad that I was wrong! Cause there is a ton of state forest land in Houston county. I have worked down there a few times this past summer and looked at some of it closey. Very good deer hunting land for sure.

95% of the state forest is private property. The public land will be marked separately with signs.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
