    Hope everyone is surviving the flooding that is going on. Our main road in and out of town has been flooded/closed for over a week now. The School my soon goes to is completely under water. Hopefully this starts going down soon. On a brighter note what hunts did you guys apply for this year? I applied for the Elk and Speed Goat out west. The deer hunts were mostly closer to home though.

    Little River
    Push
    Wichita Mnts
    Sequoyah
    McCalister

    Here's to hoping I get lucky!

    Well here is to keeping yer head above water! My 30 day rainfall total south of Guthrie is 17", the pond is full.. I'm in OKC so no flooding here but we did put up a family from Webers Falls in a rent house we have in Tulsa. Looks like another week of rain before it all will settle down and we get into summer weather.
    I will say this, my blackberrys, sand plums and apricots are absolutley loaded. Pecans are tasseled out and it looks to be a good year.

    Focusing on the Kiamichi's for deer season. Applied for preference points in CO (Elk, Muley's, Bear) and will for WY too. My hunting buddy and I are trying to combine points in a few years.

    Where at in the Kiamichi's? We have a cabin in Big Cedar. I spent my whole childhood down there. I got some big bucks on Cam down there last year. Several bears as well.

    We have a place off 259, north of Smithville. Seen some nice deer on camera, the area is all around good. Active bear on my camera already too. I'd like to scout out further in the woods this year, get some new sets. And we've been saying were going to float the Mountain Fork looking for entrance points, but haven't had time.

    You're place is only a few miles from our then. Just a hop over 3 sticks. I'm on a lease near Smithville (just got on) so hopefully I can tag a bear this year. The Mountain Fork is an awesome creek and it runs into my favorite lake.

    The Kiamichi River runs like 6 foot from our cabin in big cedar. We fish it often.

    It's sportsmans country all the way. Tons of areas I would like to scout. I'm getting a bear tag this year too, hoping to bag one early on. Then focusing on WT rest of season. How many acres is your lease? Border national forest at all?

    Not sure if you've experienced this, but were over run with coyotes and fox. Dont see/hear turkeys hardly at all.

    I got 50-60 pictures of Turkey's last year. Could have shot several hens with my bow. I may go ahead and shoot one this year. Didn't see a yote or a fox all season.

    Good to hear it's not widespread. They shortened the season in LeFlore County so I was concerned.
