About 2 1/2. We found one that another guy got a pic of that was waist high at almost 3 feet high. I also found one shed antler from a young buck and a bear track or two.

Went up to snow last weekend. Looks like the pigs have taken over. I mean it's bad looks like plowed up dirt where they have been rooting. The growth in the last month is crazy all the rain has really made everything grow. I'm glad we got to scout in late February or I would be lost trying to find anything in that jungle.

Rain, rain, go away, want to get up to the lease so I can play. Push is under a flood watch until Monday. 3-4" inches of rain expected 7-8" inches of rain possible in certain areas. May make for some tricky roads but we'll see what Monday and Tuesday brings to see if we can check the camera's on the lease and get cracking on scouting Wednesday.

Howdy all...... I'm new to TBH.

Just bought a place in Pushmataha and was glad to see a thread here that showed a little bit of what's up there. I hunted in Texas the last 18 years with good success but got tired of "the man" making the rules as we go. Looking forward to hunting in October. I've seen a ton more deer in Push then I ever saw in TX.

It was bad in Atoka Monday on my way back and Sardis lake was over the road next to the dam but we were able to drive it. I got a nice pic of my 1st black bear on camera.

Well this picture was from the Tulsa Army Corps of Engineers, looks bad right now. Hopefully a fee weeks of non-rainy weather will help it go down.

This is Highway 3 between Antlers and Rattan over the Kiamichi River.

That pic is crazy. That means that there is 50-75 foot deep water under the bridge. I bet one of our campers is washed away if the river looks that bad

PSE, hope it didn't take one of you campers out in all the flooding. Hopefully it will go down enough soon and we can all get out there and check our leases. But with Hugo Lake 32 ft high who knows how long it will take to get the lake and river to its normal level.

I am a little worried. I went out to my place in Collin county yesterday and the entire river bottom part of it has been washed out. I'm talking about 200 yards on both directions of our creek. Fortunately my feeder survived. Food plots are completely washed away though. It looks
Like I had four feet of running water in them for a few days. I'll cross my fingers on my camper. Mine is wedged in some trees but the others are wide open. It could be bad.

The report from our place is the road up is washed out pretty good, hopefully everything survived. May have a couple cameras that got flooded. Dad's going up this weekend to check it out.

Check the lake levels and road closures before you go. Yesterday they were showing to have flaggers out on 271 just north of the Red River and Paris because it was down to 1 lane each direction south of Hugo. That was on one of the Newspaper websites.

so the guys made it up. they rode all the trails and said they never had to get the chainsaw out. that was a surprise. also they said that the water came into camp about a foot deep but did not go into any of the campers. thank god...

also they said there is some wash out but the roads are drivable.

Well my buddies went out to the lease today, the roads were good, and it doesn't look like the creek got too high. They got some posting done on the property but they couldn't find one camera and one feeder. Hopefully they just couldn't find it and it wasn't stolen but I am thinking they walked off as there was sign someone was riding horses in the area. I know thievery happens it still ticks me off

Hi, Im new to TBH and Just purchased land in northern Push county, it is exciting to see this thread and all the hunters from TX that hunt in Oklahoma. I got tired of paying out the wazoo for land that wasn't mine so i bought some.

Welcome USMC...... I too did the same thing as you did. I was on a lease for 18 years in West Texas. I just bought land in Northern Push (Clayton Area). I've been seeing great deer and a bear. Cant wait till this October unless the Rangers make the playoffs then I need to work.

Can I play?

We just closed on land in OK, it is a little farther north than most of yall I think. It is is Latimer County, not too terribly far from Wilburton. There is tons of deer sign, I am stoked to hunt it for the first time this year. It has NEVER been hunted (legally) since the previous owner's family bought the land sometime in the late 1800s. Do any of you know anything about that area? Thanks for any info!

My feeder was empty and I had 26 pictures of crows, lightning, the tree falling next to it caused a pic to be taken and then a few pics of nothing. Turns out that we didn't measure the trigger distance correctly and the feeder was 2 yards out of range. There were a few pics that you can make out corn on the ground in front of the tube, so something was digging it out. May account for the bear tracks in the area. Fixed the distance problem while we were up there. Saw a few hens with this years hatch which was good, a lot of tracks from deer and hogs. We also had had some trees down but nothing major. The few Oak trees on the place are doing well and should draw some deer if they have a good drop this year.

Hope all you gents are enjoying the off season! Many thanks to Daniel for seeing the obvious need and stepping up to start the 2015 thread. Thanks.

My apologies for being tardy to the party. Found myself overcommitted (church, coaching little league, being Dad, work, etc, etc) this spring and had to prioritize.

Been to the mountains twice this spring and am going through withdrawals. The spring rains washed about 99% of the soil out of our roads and we are growing a bumper crop of rocks! The positive part of the equation is that the place is booming with cover. Hopefully the mast production will be off the charts this fall.

Put out a mineral block and salt block up at Walls Rough in March and they were gone by 1st week in June. Cams showed tons of deer on them until a deficient size bear rolled in. FIL replaced them last week.

The lake is to the brim.

And the fish were biting earlier this month.
My buddy was thrilled with landing his personal best crappie.



I'll end my first post of 2015 with sharing my most important task in a decade. My 10 year old says she wants to kill a deer this fall instead of just sitting in the blind with me so it's GO time! Going to pick up Papa's .223 next time I'm in Durant.

Still haven't made time to go put some mineral sites and put up cameras, feeling way behind the 8 ball currently. Hopefully the roads will be in good enough shape that I'll be able to go up in a couple of weeks and start doing some work. Pretty excited to put the knowledge I gained last year to work this year!

I'd say 4.5+ based on that pic. Face looks grey, body makes the legs look short, back is starting to sway. That first pic is a good looking deer. In to see what he becomes.

Agree. He is also a Taurus. Enjoys acorns and hanging out with his bros until they get annoying every fall.

That picture was a few weeks ago. We will check the cameras again next week. We actually moved this camera about a hundred yards off this feeder on some hand corn. We didn't know there was a bachelor group coming in when we moved the camera. But I bet we have more pictures of him where we moved the camera. I'm definitely going to try and pattern him and get on him early in the season if he turns out nice.
