thistlewaite is tough.

big bucks but you need to know the area. the only ones that succeed in that jungle are the ones who hunt it all the time. it's tough.

I've heard the same thing. They call it the jungle. I went and walked it a bit last year and it's easy to see why it got that nickname. One of my buddies kills good deer there but he keeps his mouth shut. All I know is that he walks a lot and sits all day.

Thanks this is our first year without a deer lease and my son and I were thinking about trying public land. We might try it

Snakes. Big snakes. Make sure it's cold when you go. Big deer in there but they don't surrender.

I cruised the timber in there during the summer once (there was still water and 19ft tall palmettos). Definitely had to take the next day off

My wife and I live on the edge of Thistlewaite. Her dad has a few acres and we see large deer out here routinely.

Her sons each killed a deer last weekend for opening day, one was a yearling, the other was a nice sized doe.

The rut hasn't started yet, but trail cam pics show a pretty nice selection of deer already.

Thanks for replying I will go scout a couple of spots soon and give it a try. Just looking to get a little meat.

This ain't no lie.... back in the early 90's I was hunting from a tree stand off Peckham Road. I could hear the buck grunting and chasing a doe, and at times I could see his white horns. Only problem was the palmettos were 8+ ft high, and I had no clean shot of the buck underneath the foliage. Thistlewaite has some monsters including a 280 lbs. doe and 330 lbs. buck that were harvested in the 80's

Seriously?

I was hunting on nwr north east of vicksburg and a dude at the campground had a big deer on his 4wheeler. I walked around to see what the rack was and it was a doe. I watched them weigh it at 210 lbs.

You're welcome. As others have said, it's a popular place to hunt. Get in as early as you can.

We're lucky here on the edge, we can use 4 wheelers but even with them it's not easy. The mud can get pretty bad. It was dry over the summer but this fall has been very wet. I have Vampires on my 4 wheeler and it still has a rough time.
