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.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..
