Who went to Oklahoma turkey hunting last year. I remember somebody went to the western portion last year. I am planning on going that way this year and was wonderinghow you guys did it last year. Public land or private? Outfitted? Any info would be appreciated.

archer,

i went out there last year with some buddies of mine. it was public land that is broken up with private land. we all got birds but it was tough catching them on public land. but we stuck with it and patience paid off.

There are a few small management areas around the panhandle part (where it starts) of the state. Ive hunted them with good success in the past.
Cant remember the names.
try this website for more information, there is also a link to a map program that will let you build your own map of the WMA/PHA you want to hunt.

Good luck. I know back in the bad old 70's and 80's there weren't a lot of Turkeys in OK but there were a lot in NW Oklahoma.

Black Kettle def. has birds, but it does get a ton of pressure. The areas around the lake are pretty good, but you might have to hoof it a ways to get away from the folks. Black Kettle isn't like our WMAs, it is made up of a dozen or more smaller tracks that aren't linked together.

If you end up there, take some non-toxic shot as there is at least one large area that you can hunt but can only do so with federally approved non-tox. Last time I was there I didn't know that and for three days I watched a gobbler strut in the same field at the same time everyday. That hurt not being able to chase him!
