Hunt the wind, be patient, hunt muzzleloader week if you can, hunt from Christmas to close of season over feed. This is my experience over the last 3 years in push co. The bucks will come to the feeders if they have been there a while. If you can put out minerals our deer hammer the mineral all summer then back on it around Christmas. Rifle season gets crazy up there after the first week the deer go away for a few weeks just disappear, that's when I see them bachelor back up and start hitting feed around Christmas.

Someone should bronze this and when in doubt, refer back to it. This is 100% spot on my experience hunting this area since 2012, minus the feeders. We hand feed in hog paneled feed pens. Iíll also say, in my experience, all those pretty pictures you get of those bucks all summer long, say goodbye early because they disappear a few days before opening day EVERY YEAR! Itís like clockwork, they are still in summer feeding patterns leading right up to opening day and then BAM, theyíre gone like a fart in the wind.

First week can be good, especially if the bucks are still grouped up or on somewhat of a feeding pattern. We didnt get a chance to set up feeders last year due to a last minute move, but we do have 13 throwing buck ration 16% this year and prob 20 mineral sites. It was a rough go our first year on the place but did learn alot, so hopefully with all the feed and a little knowledge i can get lucky. Rice bran is another attractant if you dont have to fight the cattle off of it. We put out cameras on the feeders last weekend so should have some pictures in a month or so.

No huge hurry. I have 10 acres with a new cabin build. Cabin sits about 300 Feet from county road. I cut down trees cleared road with a tractor however I need the road worked better as well as some other clearing to give me better access. With a good Dozer D6 or Front Loader should take a man who knows what heís doing about 6 hours.

In for this thread. We just acquired a small lease in Pushmataha Co. Gonna be just the family to hang out at. Looks like mostly 15yr Pine with a few large trees left. Across the road from the Little River. Should be some good bedding and open areas to hunt. Every one around still has big timber. Anxious to get up and put some cameras and stands out.

we are about 3-4 miles east of the school and on south side of road. At least that is where camp is. river runs through property we camp on. Other part of lease is a little further south of the highway right where the river turns south and forms the western border to our place there.

plenty of hogs to be had up there. They disappeared off our lease for awhile but they are back now and need thinned out. Our land owner said he never saw them three years ago but they are trying to take a hold of the place now.

Good, I think. I was curious how thick they were in there in there. Did plenty of O&G work around Ardmore/McAlester and everywhere in between and never saw a whole bunch of them. Just a few groups here and there back in the 2000ís.

The deer are wise and crafty in that part of the country. Been through many a season where I wondered why in the world I was still bowhunting.....then BOOM, a big old, nasty, swolle up beast materializes from the thick tangle, within bow range and I am reminded that the Kiamichi mountain donít give up their trophy deer without a fight.

If a man will put in the work to scout and hunt smart he can have success if things come together.

I wrote this a few years ago and will repost.

The Disease

I've got a sickness and the only antidote can be found in the rugged, rock and brush choked valleys of the Kiamichis, delivered by a swollen, stinking, testosterone filled beast so wiley and elusive that his cedar and pine polished antlers have yet to be spied by human eyes. Like a fever this disease assaults me in the night as my thoughts and dreams turn to flashes of a brown coat and faint glimpses of white through the shadows. The alarm's unrelenting whine plucks the ghostly silhouette and misty calm from me as I fumble to a semi conscious state. My blurry gaze clears and once again I stand at the familiar corner of business need and domestic responsibility. The clock and calendar, defeated enemies of a recurring nine-month's war are resurrected once again. Until I am released from this wallless prison the beast of my dreams shall live a few weeks more.....completely oblivious to the impending threat from above that awaits.

Opening weekend feels like a lifetime away.

Micah

Thatís a good read bro. Are yíall each buying new license/tags for each season (archery,gun,muzzleloader) as a non-resident or yíall just buying an archery tag and using it all year for all 3 seasons? I read somewhere I think you can do that. If thatís not correct please someone me.

Since muzzleloader and rifle are so short we just bow hunt during for all the seasons off the archery license. No need to buy the other two. May buy a bear license this year, still undecided but had a bear last year I could have shot on opening day.

My experience has been that some of the best hunting has been from muzzle loader to first week of November. Not super scientific but Iíve seen the most chasing activity then.

one guy on our place has the lifetime but the rest of us just buy the archery and only hunt with it during all the seasons. I can't afford to buy the rifle, muzzleloader, and archery.
I just wait till after deer season(or before), and use the AR to hog hunt. No need for a licence to hog hunt. You can even rifle hunt hog during deer season if you get a special tag or permit from the game warden.

The hogs have come and gone on our place. When the bears moved in it seemed like the hog sign dropped to near zero. This might have been coincidence. In 20+ years of hunting this place Iíve never seen a hog while on stand and have only ran across them while walking once. That said, I donít hunt feeders on this place and have only begun using them in the last few years with my kids.

Between the hogs and bears I really donít know which Iíd take if I had to choose one. Donít like either.

This is when i plan to focus my main hunting time, witch i think is the most chasing. It just gets crazy with people up there for the rifle season and kind of shuts the deer down seems like to me. But the late season hunting feed from Christmas until end of season should be good also after the bucks bachelor back up.

It is going to be a little different for me this year. We will be splitting time between Nashoba and our new place near Quinton this year. About to start running feeders up there to try to get my 10 year old his first deer.

This is the guy that was running the river just East of your place a few years back. Aged out at six and a half years.




Having a set close to the river could pay off.

When I watch this and see him pause and look off camera to the right I get the feeling that he had three redneck bear buddies egging him on and giving pointers about getting it to topple.

Went up and looked at our little spot. Gonna have to put some work. Found one spot that could have a set-up. The rest of it is super thick 15yr old clear cut overgrowth. The road cutting threw it is the best place to hunt but the rules say no-no on that (I think). Also I got a huge lease behind us that is gonna be using our road going in and out. Plenty of large tracks in 3 spots crossing and walking up and down the road. Gonna have to get creative with this one. I can see a monster hanging around in that thick crap not moving around a lot.

Plenty of large tracks in 3 spots crossing and walking up and down the road. Gonna have to get creative with this one. I can see a monster hanging around in that thick crap not moving around a lot.

That country is like East Texas with hills! Find the windrows and bald spots to plant or bush hog and you will be fine

Wonder if these 2 were cheering him on?

Bears wiped out 2,400 lbs of corn in a couple months from our giant gravity feeder. They destroyed a barrel feeder and timer near by that had been empty. I donít think we will feed early in the year again.

Yep. Gotta be what happened. That bear looked too clean cut to be such a vandal. Must have been bear buddy peer pressure. Those two look like a bad influence.
