I'm in college and me and my buddies were planning on taking a trip down to Brinkley Arkansas to do some public land timber hunting. We've been in touch with a game warden down there and he says that its gonna take a LOT of rain to get the timber flooded. So we're trying to figure out a back up plan if the timber is not flooded by the time we're going on the trip. I'm not looking for any secret spots just some tips and to get pointed in the right direction. Maybe some other good public areas in Arkansas or even Mississippi or Louisiana. Also, I know reelfoot has a wma and blinds but does it have any timber that you can hunt without having possession of a blind? I know there would probably be a lot of competition here but we're just trying to get out in the woods somewhere. Any advice would be much appreciated.

If your considering reelfoot. Look about 40 miles East at Crockett. Crockett is part of Gooch, its part E of Gooch actually. Has several timber holes and its some pretty good hunting when you can catch it. Its right on the Obion/Weakley county line.

Its not what happens in life, but how you react to it that matters.

A lot of West TN is dry, all of our timber blinds are high and dry. Most of the wood on Reelfoot are dry. I bet most of Crocket bottoms and Gooch unit E are dry.

Sorry fellas But let it be dry! It was wet last year, and we had no Ducks! We pump water, so if really helps if we are the only water source!
