Gamelands 279 question

Ok, so I am going to be out in the area tomorrow for a few hours so I want to give #279 a try. I know they stock birds there. I also know that I saw a thread about this gamelands recently but I can't seem to find it.

Anyway, onto my question(s). My first question, and the one I am really hoping to have answered, is can anyone give me an idea what to expect there as far as a walk in? I looked at the online maps and the fields in the back seem to be really far from the parking area. Is this road open? I don't mind walking if not, just curious.

The second question is this. I would imagine that this area gets slammed pretty well since it's a small gamelands and they stock birds there. If this question doesn't get an answer I'll understand, but is there any good bunny habitat on this ground? I'll have the hound with me and would like to get him on some bunnies. Thanks guys!

A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!

Re: Gamelands 279 question

It's about a half mile walk down to the fields, isn't far at all. You'll get to the crest of a hill and you can see the fields below. They just re-dug the road, so it's a nice walk now.

And for the second question, before you get to the crest of the hill, there's a road to the left where they're logging. Nice habitat there.

Re: Gamelands 279 question

Went well today! No rabbits though. Kinda disappointed with the look of the area for bunnies, but pheasants like crazy... the dog had a good time at least!
