yes     you can walk that area between spirit and the slough   think its called railroad grade      lotta open prairie once you get out there 1/2 mile      my buddy has killed deer and hogs in that exact area your talking    he goes bout a mile down and climbs a palm     best to be in a tree stand out there     i believe theres a locked gate where your talking so you park right off  the paved road by the gate and walk in from there    good area            i hunt off four sections road 3/4 way down the road makes a sharp left    right there your only 75yds from the private property to your south      those guys run feeders year round and kill huge bucks    i follow there fenceline heading east  bout 3/4 of a mile till there fence turns to the south    right there i always see bucks and have killed several .   otter grade and spoonbill are brand new areas that used to be a cattle lease and was a good hunting lease but i havent ever scouted that area.  get atleast half mile from the road look for heavy used trails and set up a camera  look for rubs too     both those areas i told you about are good choices    im not hunting out there this year so feel free to check out four sections road spot if the roads open.   good luck

    And thanks for all your advice! I really appreciate the help and honesty. I wasn’t able to hunt during archery so I returned my permit and I ended up hunting picayune and got an 8pt. Im going to go into the slough soon to scout for my gun tag and I’m definitely going to check out the areas you told me about. Thanks again by the way. And if you ever need any help with anything I’m happy to give you a hand!

    Have you ever hunted there for gun? I’ve heard the deer kinda disappear and don’t move around as much. Do you think it’s worth it to keep the gun tag?
