Hello to everyone. 4 years ago I was able to buy 160 ares of land next to the north fork red river in western OK. For years I wanted my own land as I am very passionate about deer hunting and land habitat. I'm not right on the river but my property line is only about 250 yards from it. I get a huge draw of wildlife off the river,as they roam back and forth from the river to the adjoining properties. I also have a decent number of deer bedding and roaming my property. Half of the property is lower river bottom with grass pasture and scattered tree thickets. and the other half is thick brush, reminds you of Kansas land. It's a mixture of sand plums, switch grass, a few eastern cedars. Thick and gnarly with broken areas of tall grass and hack berry and china berry tree thickets and lots of wild plum thickets 4 to 10 ft. tall (you could pick plums for a week and not get them all). The Does love to keep their fawns in the thickets We don't have the big forests in western OK. Like I said our terrain is a lot like Kansas. I started managing it right away. I keep summer food plots of peas and beans(plant the big bags of pinto beans from Sams) they hammer them. In the fall its plot pike oats. I found they like oats better than winter wheat. I keep feeders year round. We have only taken one buck off it in 4 years. After the first year we decided to let all bucks walk, and take Does only. I will tell you it has paid off. Every year I am seeing bigger bucks. This summer I've seen the biggest bucks yet. It was hard to let a "decent" buck walk, but eventually it pays. I've really been following Okie kubota's threads, he has a lot of interesting stuff, as a lot of guys do. And were both Okies. Also dog doc(hope I got his handle right). and a few of the other Okies. I followed the threads on the "other forum" that shut down but was not able to get the registration to work for me. Had no problem here. Really enjoy the habitat work! I'll post some pics when I get some. New computer so I don't have any pics on it. I'll try to post some from on my phone.
