This area consists of approximately 15,000 acres of Weyerhaeuser Company land. 
The area was established as a WMA in 1999. 
The primary objective of this management area is to provide quality wildlife habitat and public hunting opportunities.
This area is in the Little River and Red River drainage systems and primarily consists of intensively managed pine timberlands and mixed pine/hardwood tracts. 
Access points are located along Hwy. 108 between Ashdown and Foreman and north of the Wallace Community on Hwy 32.
Hunting Opportunities
Deer, quail, turkey, squirrel, and rabbits. See current regulations for seasons and permit requirements.  
Management Practices
Wildlife management practices are integrated with timber management practices to provide quality wildlife habitat and hunting opportunities. These management practices provide substantial open land habitats and stimulate excellent browse production.
Recreation Other Than Hunting
Millwood Lake offers good fishing opportunities and lies about 10 miles to the east. 

Camping is permitted on the area at designated campsites. 
Restaurants and Other Facilities
Facilities are located in Ashdown and Foreman. 
Due to the large network of Weyerhaeuser roads that run throughout the area it is recommended that anyone not familiar with the area obtain an area map from the AGFC office.
