Another 22,347 acres have been added to the Honobia Creek Wildlife Management Area in southeastern Oklahoma as the result of a new agreement between the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conversation and the timber company, Southern Diversified, which owns the land.
The agreement will expand the Honobia Creek WMA in Le Flore, McCurtain and Pushmataha counties to 102,346 acres. The new properties include lands never previously available to the public, including several sections of the Mountain Fork River and Little River that will benefit for hunters and anglers.
The new property is located east of Smithville near Watson and will be open for the upcoming deer hunting seasons. Use of Honobia Creek WMA requires the purchase of a land access permit which costs $40 for residents and $85 for non-residents.
