The Casey Jones Leased Lands WMA was established in 1988.
The Casey Jones Leased Lands WMA was established to provide hunting and other outdoor recreation opportunities in south Arkansas.
The various tracts provide a diversity of habitats, including upland pine, upland pine/ hardwood mix, upland hardwood, bottomland pine/ hardwood mix and bottomland hardwood.
The Casey Jones Leased Lands WMA tracts can be accessed via highways and county roads. A Casey Jones Leased Lands WMA map is available to those who purchase a Casey Jones WMA permit from license dealers, AGFC Regional Offices or the AGFC License Division in Little Rock.
The Casey Jones Leased Lands WMA offers excellent deer, turkey and small game hunting opportunities.
Most of the tracts are managed intensively for pine and/or hardwood sawtimber. Single tree selection is the predominant harvesting method. Prescribed fire is also used. These timber management practices produce excellent wildlife habitat for most game species.
Designated campsites are located in various areas of the WMA. No electricity or running water is provided.
