    Default Looking for a different WMA

    Hey guys. I'm getting tired of hickory creek down here. Wanted to go to a different wma this year. I'm not having much luck getting current reports. I'm liking the Tulsa area, like maybe skiatook, but am very flexible. Any good reports from you guys??

    What kinda luck you looking for? deer- archery, muzzleloader, gun? quail? waterfowl? There is lots of corp land around Texoma and on the Washita river arm of the lake that is full of waterfowl. When I went to college at Durant, we hunted several times. Limited on ducks very easily. We didn't have the set up for geese though.

    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."

    Yeah, whatcha hunting?

    For deer & quail, a lot can be said for Black Kettle - it's huge. It's hunted hard, but lotta deer. Packsaddle and Ellis County are nearby too. But no hogs like on Hickory Creek, if that's your thang.

    What county is Wilson in? How far you willing to drive?

    Actually there are hogs on Packsaddle. Its close enough to the river that many get on there. I have heard a couple parts of Black Kettle have had hogs occassionaly.

    This is spot on. Lots of corp land around here. Lots of deer, hog and waterfowl to be found along the Washita arm.

    For what it's worth, one of the places I'm thinking of hitting during deer gun season (for deer & hogs), which is not far from you, is a large island smack in the middle of the Red River, just to the ESE of the northeast corner of Love Valley, and SSE of the southeast corner of Hickory Creek, where those two public lands converge. I would hope that not that many hunt it, being hard to access - we'll see. Look on the map and you'll see which island I'm talking about - it's all wooded. I think it's technically Love Valley, or maybe Lake/COE area. If you want to help me do a drive there, hit me up.

    I would go west. Black Kettle, Ellis Co., etc. Lots of deer in that open country out there.

    Hmm, two votes for black kettle. Never occurred to me to go west. I will check that out.
    I will look at that island Dr.. I'll be blackpowdering locally and have put a lot of miles on my boots in that area. My profile pic came out of Hickory Creek. I'm able to scout on the weekends. Thx for the feedback guys.

    If you choose Black Kettle I would expect to make plans where to hunt next year on opening weekend this year. There are several guys that go out there the week before season and set up camp at there hunting area. One of the easiest ways to find a spot not heavily hunted is to look around opening weekend and see where nobody else is. Then you can "claim" it for years to come.

    Really, deer densities are lower in this part of the world. You can just see them because it is wide open.

    Don't be fooled. Black Kettle produces a lot of deer each year. It also harnesses a boat load of hunters as well. Muzzle loader season used to be pretty peaceful around there, it has now morphed into a prelude to rifle season.

    Packsaddle is the polar opposite of Black kettle. Most hunters that like black kettle don't seem to like packsaddle and most hunters that like packsaddle don't like black kettle. Black kettle is very easy to access. At packsaddle, you have to work for a deer. There are good odds that you will be dragging or carting a deer a long ways if you shoot one. In my opinion, there are slightly bigger deer at BK than packsaddle. I hunt both very regularly throughout archery season.

    On the note of pigs, black kettle has pigs, mostly in the southern portion of the district. Packsaddle also has pigs, but they tend to be very transient and there are no where near as many pigs around the general area as there are in other parts of the state. The biggest group of porkers I have ever seen at either of the two was about 15.

    For those looking at hunting packsaddle this rifle season, please be prepared for the oilfield activity. I was by there today and there are three active rigs on the area right now that have just gone up in the last few days. Coupled with the construction of other locations and roads to the new locations, it is a very busy place right now. Not that I feel like it will affect deer activity, but I figure some guys might like to know.
