Description

The Caddo National Grasslands WMA is administered by the US Forest Service and is managed under a cooperative agreement with Texas Parks and Wildlife.

The WMA is located in Fannin County and is divided into two units, the 13,360 acre Bois d' Arc Creek Unit and the 2,780 acre Ladonia Unit. The Bois d' Arc Creek Unit comprises six separate land tracts and the Ladonia Unit has twelve land tracts. Parks and Wildlife manages the wildlife hunting opportunities with permitted hunts. The Ladonia Unit tracts, whose boundaries are sometimes hard to find has habitat that attracts mostly doves and quail. Hunting is limited because of the boundary issues. The Bois d' Arc Creek Unit has a more diversified habitat with two lakes and four streams. This Unit is used mainly to hunt white-tailed deer, squirrels and waterfowl. Feral hogs, dove, other migratory game birds, quail, rabbit, hare, predators, furbearers, and frogs are also present. Hunting is by Annual Public Hunting Permit (APH). See the current Public Hunting Lands Map Booklet for legal species, seasons and bag limits. Trapping predators and furbearers are also permitted with a US Forest Service Permit.

Coffee Mill Lake and Lake Davy Crockett offer fishing for perch, crappie, catfish and largemouth bass with Florida largemouth bass in Lake Crockett.
