I think one of the best things you could do for yourself and your hunting odds would be to contact the game and fish department.

They will be more than willing to lend you some great advice on where to put your boots in the mud, especially in an area like that. Sometimes they can even give out contact information for hunters who have previously hunted the area. You aren't going to get much better information than that.
Have you been able to get out and scout at all? Regardless, good luck on your hunt and you will have to keep us informed on how everything shakes out on your hunt.
