Oklahoma: Plan for Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge Recommends Elk and Deer Hunting

Friday, September 7, 2012

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released a plan to guide management of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge for the next 15 years.  

The 59,000-acre refuge is located 25 miles northwest of Lawton, Oklahoma, and was originally established as a Forest Reserve in 1901.  The draft plan calls for the continuation of elk and deer hunting to manage population levels.  

The NRA would appreciate its hunter-members taking a few minutes to send a message in support of keeping elk and deer hunting as core values of this national wildlife refuge. 

Public comments are being requested by September 10th, and can emailed to Roxanne_Turley@fws.gov.  Please include "Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge draft CCP and EA" in the subject line of your message.  

For further information about the plan, please contact Tony Booth, Refuge Manager, at 580-429-3222.
