OFA Winter Field Meet!

January 19th - 21st, 2018

Mountain Park, OK


"Holy Crap! Where the heck is Mountain Park?!?!" one might ask.  Well, it's nestled right next to the Wichita Mountains in southwest Oklahoma, about 30 minutes northwest of Lawton.  The town of Mountain Park began as a trading post named Burford where a post office was established in August of 1901, just after the Kiowa, Comanche, and Apache Reservation opened for settlement by Non-Native Americans.  In February of 1902, the town that had sprung up around the trading post changed it's name to Mountain Park.  Fires destroyed most of the wood frame building along the Main Street in 1906 and 1908, and the town was rebuilt with all brick structures.

 

"Sweet!  This is going to be a lot of fun!  So where are we staying?"

Lodging:

I (Krys Langevin) am hosting the meet, and you are all welcome to stay at my place.  I am on a section just off of OK 54 that sits up on top of a hill, which is about a quarter mile off of the road.  Ya'll are welcome to do a few things...you can bring a tent and stay on the property, you can stay in the main house, or you can stay in the loft area of the garage.  The house is a barndominium, and the garage portion is very large.  The loft area is the part above the house.  The garage has a large propane heater and can keep the space comfortable enough.  Bring air mattresses or sleeping bags.  Your other option of course, is to find a hotel/motel in the area.  People are welcome to come early or stay later, but I will be working and won't be readily available.  There is a full kitchen in the house, grills outside, and extra fridge and freezers in the garage.  There is a full bathroom in the garage with a shower.  The house has tank-less hot water, so there will be plenty for everyone.


OFA_Meet_Jack_Rabbit


Game:

Ducks, jacks, quail, and cotton tails!  Last year at this time, the area had ducks on every pond.  We will be working hard to secure pond access between now and then.  Cotton tails and quail are everywhere!  Jack numbers seem to be at a high as well.  They are everywhere right now as well!  Some fields are way better than others, but they can be found just about anywhere that looks like good jack habitat.  One thing that I will ask is that you please not hunt anything but ducks on my property.  The rest of my fields will be open to all though, and no one will have issues getting into game.

There will be more details to come as we get closer to the time of the event, but if you have any questions feel free to contact me or one of our board members.  My e-mail and phone number are in the directory, but Dan will also be posting my contact information and address on the okiehawkers private Facebook page.  For those of you who are not OFA members yet but would still like to attend, feel free to e-mail someone from the board, and they will get the appropriate information sent along your way.


All the best,

-Krys Langevin-
