    Guessing you live in the central part of the state? Those two are quite a ways apart. Push is nice. Lots of big country in the Southeast part of the state. I hunt a couple close to my house. Goodluck.

    I hunted there last year and got one doe. There are a lot of does out there but there are some good bucks stomping around too. It does get hunted hard on the weekends but once it gets cold the pressure backs off. If you can hunt it in the morning during the week you would have it mostly to your self.
    If you want to talk about about some spots send me a pm.

    lexington wma is south of norman. It gets hunted a lot and they allow gun there in november. I think most of the stories about people shooting at whatever just moved in the bushes started there! :bow:

    Lexington only has bow and muzzleloader. they are also closed the first 9 days of gun season.I've heard its like a war zone in there with people shooting at anything that moves . don't really feel comfortable in that scenario. wish there was a lot more ethical hunters there during gun, but I guess that's the way it goes...lol

    Well i think it opened today if im not mistaken for people to go in an setup so im debating I really dont have any Atvs to cover it. What u think about spot an stalk hunting there? Would it be a good place to do it? Wud u nd a sidearm going in there? Ive never hunted it so its kinda like going in blind folded cuz I wouldn't know the first place to go I would have to do some major tracking an looking for signs. There doing alot up at Gruber Construction wize on the base side an ive seen plenty wildlife just going in an working there even saw an elk for the first time a couple weeks ago so its definitely holding some big game but as far as whitetail there's gotta be tons of deer in there.

    I didn't even know one could ride ATV's in there? I don't think you'd need a firearm. I've never seen anything there to make me want a pistol on me. The day I killed that 10 point I had Elk all over me. I'm guessing they come from Cherokee WMA. Your best bet right now is go look and see what Oak trees made. If you can find any acorns you will find deer. That place is absolutely loaded with deer. See a ton of doe that's for sure. Good luck!
