Default Three Rivers Oklahoma

Did some research on Three Rivers WMA in south east Oklahoma. It's over 200,000 acres and is owned by Weyerhaeuser timber company. The tags/license cost $280 for nonresident then you need a land use permit which is $80. You get 6 deer for archery. You can also camp anywhere within the area. I want to drive up and camp out of my truck for a week and do nothing but hunt.

We took a mini vacation up there for a weekend in August and man did we see a lot of deer. I think it would be a super experience with the huge ravines and mature tree. Very beautiful country for sure.

Oklahoma public land hunting makes a lot of sense for a lot of Texas residents. I'll just leave it at that.

Great area to go trailing around and just enjoying nature and a nice getaway, as long as its not deer season.

The woods get pretty full with the locals and deer season is a national holiday up there. I was sitting on the porch of a cabin that we had rented drinking a couple of coffee opening morning. I was not sure at first if the deer were armed or what the heck was going on but it sounded like a war in them there hills.

Extremely tuff, if you want to hunt public Turkeys in Oklahoma, go out west.
