Check out the TWRA website for the maps of Shelby WMA and Eagle Lake which are continuous. Pretty fair maps, at least to get you started. If you like to hunt in the hills, there is a fair amount of territory that is not in safety zone in Preachers House and Island Forty compartments.

No one's eyes go bad looking on the bright side of life.

Someone mentioned Hatchie Refuge. I believe there are 2 of those, Uppper Hatchie and Lower Hatchie. Upper is on I-40 near exit 56. these are national refuges so check the regulations. they also have permits you have to sign. I have a friend that used to hunt the one on I40 several years back, had good luck.
