category : Wildlife Preserves
This premier birdwatching and waterfowl hunting area has sighted more than 270 bird species, including many that are rare to Oklahoma and not found elsewhere in the state. Birders have likened this area to the Gulf Coast habitats of Louisiana and Florida. The 5,814 acre wetland project was designed to restore hydrology and reestablish bottomland hardwoods, and is managed by the USDA Forest Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation and Ducks Unlimited. Reservoirs make up 397 acres and are walk-in only and available for fishing (some cannot be fished between Oct 15 and Jan 31). Other rules and regulations apply to waterfowl hunting which can be found on the web site. Rabbit, snipe, quail, dove, turkey and archery deer hunting is also allowed.
