For quail hunters, the centerpiece of the region is the Black Kettle National Grassland. Covering about 30,000 acres in Roger Mills County, the Black Kettle National Grassland offers some of Oklahoma's finest public land for hunting wild bobwhite quail. It contains about 40 different parcels of various sizes. The habitat consists of rolling sandhills, shinnery oak, sagebrush and plum thickets, as well as native grasses like big bluestem and switchgrass. Cottonwood bottoms along the streams provide extra cover.
