    It's primarily a walk in use area. Fairly open WMA. Muzzy season doesn't get to awfully crowded. Rifle season will be pretty busy just like most WMA's open to rifle hunting.

    Deer numbers in NW Okla seem to be down just a bit this season following the past few years. Nothing to be to worried about though.

    Lots and lots of oil and gas activity going on and has been for about two years now. Traffic can be very heavy at times on the area lease roads. Depending on where rigs and frac crews are at.

    Fishfurlife is exactly right.

    Ridgehunter--I'm always so grateful I never talk. Vaginas are like wild animals. You have to be very quiet or you scare them away. Even after you gain one's trust you should still be *amazed* it comes close enough to let you touch it. Especially most of us here. I've seen a lot of ya'll. Don't call up all your friends and yell "IT'S EATING FROM MY HAND RIGHT NOW."

    This made me laugh but is Oh so true. There is no such thing as hauling a deer out and going down hill at Packsaddle. Literally.

    Isn't that where they have done a major quail survey? Its been awhile back, but I've read some things about it.

    Any quail left?

    Its a punishment, because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    Yes. "The Quail Study" was done there (1993ish-1998ish) and OSU is going in to year three on a very large Bobwhite project that is taking place on Packsaddle as well as Beaver River WMA.

    Quail numbers are a bit better this season compared to the last two but I am not kidding when I say that about 85% of all the birds are this years birds. Good hatches through the season it seems, just not a big pot to brew from going in to the breeding season. I believe another spring/summer like this ears and a guy might actually get excited about hunting them again.

    Its kind of a difficult area to hunt, especially if you're used to heavy woods, but its a very scenic place to be. I haven't spent as much time there as I'd like to.

    It can definitely be a tough drag out, if you hunt the river at all it is mostly downhill to the river and all uphill on the way out, lots of canyons and ridges in some areas. I have hunted out there several times, like everyone says it is beautiful country but there is quite a bit of oil and gas production in the area. Rifle can get really crowded but I have been during muzzleloader in the past and it was fairly crowded as well. Like at most WMA's you just have to be willing to really get in there as deep as you can to get away from the crowds, I have a spot I like to go to, but it is a serious hike in, I killed this nice 8 point there in 2009 rifle, this picture was taken before my buddy and I had to drag him out with a two wheel cart over a mile, it was tough and took us close to two hours.....I should have taken a picture after the drag......we were suffering and looked like we had just ran a cross country marathon in full pack and gear.

    When did they start with the oil production? I think 98' was the last time I've turkey hunted out there. Nice sticky! Any I thought a 22lb tom in the back of a turkey vest was a load out!
