I drove around to some of the WMA areas on PP. All in all, most of the areas in the North and Middle PP WMA are only accesible by boat ... unless you know someone who will let you park on their property. If some of those land owners read this message, please PM me . There are no parking & no trepassing signs all over the place surrounding the WMAs. Apparently we've got a bunch of idiots that dump trash in the areas so now land owners don't want anyone around.

I also spoke to staff at Stones River firing range this weekend. Although the land around that area (both sides of Hobson Pike) is listed as fair game on the TWRA maps (updated in 2006), the staff say that hunting is absolutely NOT allowed. They also said that the state and the Corps have been doing some land swapping. Therefore if you hunt PP WMAs, be sure the area you hunt is still fair game.


I want to hear more about this land swapping? Did they say what tracts were effected?

The guy at the firing range didn't say specifically but he sort of pointed around the Lamar Hill/Fates Sanders area on the map. He said that the Corps has given the state control over a small area. I don't know if that changes whether or not hunting is still allowed??? You may want to give the resource manager a call to be sure.

According to the TWRA map that you mentioned, you CAN hunt that. I asked this exact same question, as well as others, to the JPP manager and the TWRA region II office and both said to go by the map. I pointed out that it was a dated map and they said that is the most recent and the one that GWs use and the Corp of Engineers as well. You might want to call to double check, as I said it was a couple of years ago and it could have changed. But since the map hasn't changed, then I doubt anything else has.
