We had a lease around that area 2 years ago. The locals do not like out of town folks hunting in the area. They would drop there dogs off on our property, and let them run. One piece of advice, DO NOT TAKE A DOG ISSUES TO THE LOCAL POLICE! Speaking from experience (broken nose, and broken ribs). Oh and by the way, all I did was ask them to stop dropping there dogs on our lease. The worst part was we had pictures of several really nice dear on our property, until we found locals hunting at night. There is really not a whole lot you can do about this, because the public officials are the ones outlawing. Not trying to scare you, just BE PREPARED.

not everyone.
I have been hunting in that area for about 7 years now and never had anything but good experiences with the locals.Great deer hunting and I actually met my wife there.I have never had a problem with a single person there.Maybe if someone is haveing trouble it is because they are causing trouble.

Is this area capable of producing trophy bucks?

Who knows
If you can find what they call the White Hall Mall (Gas station), go look inside. There are some really nice dear on the wall inside. I had some really nice pictures from the property we had. I think that if you could some how keep the deer on your property, you would have a good chance of getting a trophy.

The land that we are leasing is over 9,000 acres. So I don't think we will have a problem keeping deer on it.

There are big deer in the area.It just depends what club you are in.Our club didn't have any security from the poachers.So the deer we saw were so high strung,that a good clear shot was hard to get.From 1998-2004.Beautiful habitat, some really nice racks from the locals that were in the club..never had any problems when we were there.

Hunting in Jena
I agree with eilis-hugh. There are nice deer in the area. I've hunted there for a couple of years but got tired of the locals hunting my area when I wasn't there. I put in too much time and effort to have someone hunting my area without permission. Oh and not to mention the club president was working for the local police department. Try to get something done about the outlaws. Just trying to offer a little advice. Good luck hunting.
