Looking the McGraw Ford Georgia WMA

I had the satisfaction this weekend to pay a visit to the McGraw Ford Georgia WMA, and found it to be a awesome compact Georgia WMA. The only thing I seriously failed to like was the actuality that there were being virtually no destinations to stay overnight nearby. This full Georgia WMA is only close to two thousand two hundred acres, so it’s not a authentic massive Georgia WMA. The streets on the Georgia DNR map have been relatively proper, however, finding there from I-75 coming from Atlanta proved to be a chore. I did set incredibly unique instructions on my enhanced Ga WMA map clarifying some streets that had no names, and also a confirmed a couple of the meals hot places on my increased map.  

1 matter I did like was that the Etowah River operates straight through this Ga WMA, and there was incredibly uncomplicated access and parking proper along the bridge going about the Etowah River in which hunters could park, and stroll all alongside the Etowah River to track down good looking places. I ate at two unique BBQ joints while I was there, and a single was okay, and one more was amazing. I ate very first at Two Brothers BBQ just outside the house of the Georgia WMA. I had a BBQ sandwich and was not that impressed. For starters there have been extremely several decisions on the menu, and you could only get chopped pork, which I individually desire sliced pork, they bring your sandwich out wrapped in skinny paper, and you you should not get a plate to set it on. The Brunswick stew was a mush style, which I favor a lot more of a stew style as opposed to true mushy. I can say that Two Brothers BBQ had welcoming team, and a great setting with tough wooden floors, and state collectibles lined the partitions. You do need to have to know, that they are only open up Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from ten 30 a.m. to 9 p.m. They are shut Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  

The 2nd BBQ place I identified was a extremely little ma and pop joint identified as Amos BBQ. Amos’s BBQ was to die for, the stew was excellent, and the pork was very juicy. They had a large menu of things to opt for from, and most vital to us hunters, is that they serve an insanely great breakfast. They experienced a range of contemporary do-it-yourself biscuits which includes steak, rooster, tender loin, warm backlink, sausage, bacon, and gravy. The BBQ is accurate smoked in a smoker and not uncovered to open up flame, so all their meats experienced that terrific typical smoked taste. I have to say that there prices ended up incredibly affordable. They have been there for 5 many years, and the homeowners identify is Paul Johnson. There hrs of operation are Monday via Thursday 5 thirty a.m. to 8 o’clock p.m., Thursday as a result of Saturday 5 30 a.m. to 9 o’clock p.m. They are shut on Sunday, and they halt serving breakfast at ten 30 a.m., or until eventually all of the breakfast meals are gone.  

I put both of the BBQ places on my improved Georgia WMA map for long run reference. Outside the house of these two BBQ joints, I did not discover any other sites to consume that appeared worthy of mentioning. I did see 1 smaller like sandwich shop right in the middle of the compact town, but it appeared truly high-priced. I walked in the doorway, and just saw a wine menu with like really expensive wines and sandwiches, and turned all-around and walked again out. Not my kinda position.  

To wrap matters up, this Ga WMA designed the great working day excursion for me, I had breakfast at Amos’s BBQ, bought out in the woods close to nine o’clock, hunted till lunch, went to Two Brothers Pit BBQ for lunch, went back again and hunted along the Etowah river for a handful of additional hours which even nevertheless I did not see anything at all, it was a great hike with excellent sights, and then went and ate meal at Amos’s BBQ, and then named it a day. Total this is a excellent area to get to early, with good foodstuff, and effortless access to numerous searching places, and would give it a very good quality of a Ga WMA I will definitely return to, but just no overnight facilities.
