Besides Hagerman Wildlife Refuge, is there any public hunting areas for deer around Lake Texoma?

Get in touch with the ACOE office, behind Texoma's dam off Hwy 91, and get them to send you a copy of their Hunting Map, of ACOE Land on both sides of the river. Gotta follow state regs & seasons for either state.

OBTW This is a PIA ....If you are up this way you cannot get to the Dam & ACOE offices from the east end of Hwy 91 west bound off Hwy 75, as the bridge that washed out will not be repaired for ummm who nows how long as I've heard 18-24 months and it's already been 6 months & no work been done so far since it was washed out in Last Spring's 2 Spillway over toppings....but if you exit Hwy 84 from Hwy 75 Red River @ the Honda/Nissan/Toyota Car stores and go west you can come from the Eisenhower SP entrance area off Lil Old Road @ Hwy 84 before you get to the yellow Blinker on Hwy 84 @ FM 406, and go north, or go across the river on Hwy 75 and come back south across the dam and turn into the ACOE entrance at the south end of the dam....about 15-20 miles out of the way ....but lots mo easier for sure.

FWIW the lake is at approx 625' above sea level aka 8/9 feet over the 617' normal level, but more importantly only 15' below the Spillway...and we could have another Spillway over topping if we get any more rain...and the only way to get to the ACOE offices will be from the OKIE side of the lake across the dam if that happens...and I just got my boathouse fixed & the Cty Rd in front of the house rebuilt from last years floods....with a For Sale sign in the yard...


And most if not all the Hunting area around the lake on ACOE Property is prolly already under water again...Just Sayin'

One of the Local weather guesser's last nit sez the lake is gonna hit 628' above sea level by next Sunday, after the next rain event this coming weekend, with NO...NONE ...Not ANY.... ZERO flood gate release's until the flooding on the Mississippi River is resolved from as far north as Minneapolis & the Ohio River Valley and all the flooding rivers around St Louis have drained out below disaster stage.... or parts of Lamar/Red River and Bowie County Texas. and the same area's of Oklahome & the ArkLaTex west Hope & Stamps and North Western Louisiana down thru Shreveport/Bossier/Monroe will go under water again like it did last Spring...leaving Lake Texoma with a only a 12' Rise cushion before Texoma goes over the 640' tall Spillway again for the 3rd time (or 4th time if you wanna count the 3" under topping in June '15 too) in less than 7 months, and become 35-50% larger than it it suposed to be, again.

Just for the record ....the Army Corps of Engineers - Lake Texoma Project, aka ACOE, property line around Lake Texoma is approx at 645' above sea level according to their markers & maps...and generally pretty accurate, but not always accurate to under a +/- 12" foot, with the Lake generally accepted as being 89,000 surface acres at 617' or Conservation Pool level.
