West Bay WMA
Bay City Rd
Oakdale, LA 71463

West Bay Wildlife Management Area is located in north-central Allen Parish near Elizabeth. State highways and parish roads leading to the area accompanied with timber company roads make West Bay very accessible. The majority of the area boundaries are as follows: south of Louisiana Highway 10, north of Louisiana Highway 26, east of Turner Road, and west of River Road. West Bay is 56,000 acres in size and is entirely privately owned. The lease, which is obtained from timber companies and private individuals without charge to the State, gives the Department the right only to manage wildlife. The terrain is generally flat. Approximately one-third of the area can be considered a baygall habitat and is poorly drained. The remaining area has fairly good drainage. The only major flowing stream is Mill Creek. The forest cover is composed of pine plantations with scattered hardwoods along streambeds. There are some pine-hardwood stands located on the edge of the baygall areas. The most common hardwood species are water oak, white oak, red oak, willow oak, cow oak, blackgum, beech, hickory. Flowering dogwood, redbay, sweetleaf, and sweetgum are important overstory species found on the area. The understory composition varies with the timber type. In the baygall portions, some of the more common and valuable species found are yaupon, rattan, arrowwood, smilax, and deciduous holly. The understory in the pine plantations is primarily blackberry, dewberry, huckleberry, smilax, and numerous annual legumes and grasses. Game species hunted on the area are squirrel, rabbit, deer, dove, woodcock, and turkey. The area offers excellent bow hunting opportunities for deer. Furbearer trapping is allowed during trapping season. Two primitive camping areas are maintained on the area. Self-clearing permits are required to access West Bay. Eight permit stations are located around the WMA.
