Southeastern Oklahoma has the most public hunting land, with Honobia (80,000 acres) and Three Rivers (203,215 acres) full of whitetails. A timber company owns both lands, which the ODWC leases and makes available to the public. Each hunter must purchase a Land Access Fee permit, which helps to cover leasing costs. Depending on timber cutting rotation schedules, hunters may find large pine stands with mixed hardwoods, or freshly cut areas that provide great browse for deer. Be on stand the first part of November to witness the chasing phase of the rut, or mid-November when prime breeding occurs.
