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. Several food plots are planted throughout the area and along the lake to supplement natural browse.
In addition to a General WMA Use Permit, a Lake Greeson WMA leased lands permit is required to hunt, trap or camp on the area. Leased lands permits may be purchased at any license vendor, AGFC regional office or online at https://ar-web.s3licensing.com/
This area is made up of approximately 22,000 acres of Weyerhaeuser Company land, 12,200 acres of other private land and 2,000 acres of U.S. Corps of Engineer property.
The primary objective of this management area is to provide quality wildlife habitat and public hunting opportunities.
Lake Greeson offers good fishing opportunities and the Little Missouri River below the dam offers excellent cool season trout fishing and smallmouth bass fishing. The Crater of Diamond State Park is just south of Murfreesboro.
Facilities are located in Murfreesboro, Kirby, and Daisy. Corp of Engineer campgrounds are equipped with graveled boat ramps.
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.
