Most of the forested component of the management area consists of relatively closed overstory canopy with a fairly dense understory. Timber value is moderate due to previous logging prior to acquisition by the department. Major timber species composing the overstory are Nuttall oak, overcup oak, willow oak, American elm, sweet gum, bitter pecan, green ash, hackberry, and honey locust. Other overstory species include willow, sycamore, persimmon, red maple, cypress, and box elder.
Understory species include rattan, grapevine, dewberry, blackberry, deciduous holly, swamp dogwood, and elderberry. Switchcane, baccharis, buttonbush, poison ivy, and greenbriar are also common.
White-tailed deer, turkey, squirrels, rabbits, and raccoons, along with limited waterfowl and woodcock hunting opportunities can be found on the area. Deer and squirrel hunting opportunities are normally very good. Due to several excellent hatching years in the late 1990's, continuing through 2000-2002, wild turkey populations may have reached an all-time high. Specific habitat improvement projects completed by the department during this time have also helped the native turkey flock continue to grow. A youth lottery turkey hunt is held each year on the weekend prior to the regular turkey season.
Trapping for fur-bearers is allowed, and the species available are raccoon, otter, nutria, mink, beaver, bobcat, coyote, fox, and opossum. Alligator populations have also increased, and in 2002, a limited alligator hunting season was initiated. Five alligator tags are given to each successful hunter determined by a public lottery drawing held each summer.
Sport and commercial fishing are popular, limited only by the acreage of available water. Bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish are caught by recreational fishermen, and commercial fishermen take carp, buffalo, drum, gar, and catfish. Four improved boat ramps have been constructed.
During the northward spring migration, Big Lake WMA is visited by dozens of species of passerine birds, and the area is a very popular bird watching destination. Resident bird species are common throughout the year, and the diverse habitat types found on the area produce an assortment of bird watching opportunities. The American Bird Conservancy has recognized Big Lake WMA in its Important Birding Areas Program.
