An Oklahoma Hunting Odyssey (PICS)
« on: November 16, 2007, 09:48:00 PM »
I just got back from 16 days of hunting/visiting family/working,and thought you all might like to see some of the country out there.

I hunted my wife's family farm in southwestern Oklahoma. It backs up to a large WMA, so I had plenty of space to roam the plains.....

This is the Elk Fork of the Red River that runs through the middle of the ranch....

This is the old well on the property. It is still used to pump water to the cattle trough....

This is part of a huge lake that runs along one side of the WMA....

This is a pretty poor pic, but I was about 3 miles from the truck, on the wrong side of the river, it was about 77 degrees, and my usual photographer was watching the Sooners game 140 miles away....

I had to quarter this guy and carry him out with my daypack.

After a few days in that terrain, I learned why my wife Jen is so tough....

Great Pictures Chad. I have always wanted to hunt that type of terrain. Looks like some good fishing possiblities too.
It may be hard to get you back to Tennessee if you move out there. Congratulations on the buck and bobcat.

Allen,

No matter where I end up, it won't ever be hard to come back to TN! Too many good friends and places to hunt to stay away....

Great pictures, Chad.

Nice deer and bobcat.  I should be so lucky/skilled.

Thanks for sharing.
