Oklahoma: Hunting Included in Management Plan for Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge

Friday, February 5, 2010

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released a draft plan with several options for managing the Tishomingo Wildlife Refuge for the next 15 years. 

Tishomingo is located in south central Oklahoma and consists of more than 16,000 acres.  It was established over 70 years ago to preserve nesting grounds for migratory waterfowl.  The draft plan describes three management alternatives, all of which include some level of hunting. 

Comments on the draft are due Tuesday, March 23 and can be emailed to joseph_lujan@fws.gov.  Include "Tishomingo NWR Draft CCP and EA" in the subject line.  Comments can also be faxed to Mr. Lujan at 505-248-6874.  The plan can be viewed at http://www.fws.gov/southwest/refuges/Plan/planindex.html

For further information please call 505-248-7458.  It will be extremely helpful in the planning process if hunters familiar with the refuge can comment on which of the alternatives best reflect the needs and desires of those who hunt on this refuge.
