Mason Mountain Wildlife Management Area Information:
This Wildlife Management Area was a working exotic game ranch before the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department acquired the property in 1997. Today, 14 species of resident exotics provide excellent opportunities to study the effects of large African animals on local habitat, and the interactions between exotic and native wildlife. Habitat consists of post oak, blackjack oak, live oak and Texas oak. The three lakes include the 12 acre Big Lake, the 2.7 acre Comanche Lake, and the 3.9 acre Mile-O-More Lake. The area is enclosed by an 8 foot fence. Access is restricted, though the WMA offers scheduled archery and gun hunts for white-tailed deer, feral hogs and coyotes. The Mason Mountain WMA is located in Mason County, approximately 4 miles north of Mason. In Mason, take RR 386 north two miles. Go left on Old Mason Road and continue two miles to the WMA entrance.  Big Lake Fish Stocking History

Hunt Texas Online Connection:
More than 95% of Texas land is privately owned, making it hard for hunters to find affordable hunting opportunities. The Texas Parks and Wildlife has a huge public hunting program, and has developed a new service to help hunters find hunting places. This new service is provided free by the TPWD. It allows landowners to list available hunting leases or spots that have opened up, and allows hunters to find private hunting leases according to their preferences.
