Detailed maps feature Oklahoma public hunting land in new WMA Atlas

Friday, April 15, 2011

Thousands of Oklahoma sportsmen have already discovered the usefulness of the new Wildlife Management Area Atlas from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation and are using the 100-page book to explore Oklahoma's public hunting land.

Back by popular demand, this page-by-page guide to Oklahoma's public lands features topographical maps of almost every wildlife management area in the state.

"The new wildlife atlas is tough, durable, and will show hunters and fisherman where to go and how to get there," said Erik Bartholomew, wildlife biologist for the Wildlife Department. "This is a great reference for any hunter or fisherman using our state-managed areas."

Each alphabetically listed color map depicts an Oklahoma WMA, using symbols to show roads, parking areas, designated campsites, food plots, rivers, ponds, wetland development units, non-ambulatory zones, boat ramps, area entrances, shooting ranges, county boundaries and more. Additionally, acreage and contact information for each area is listed on the same page as the map. If a hunter is interested in visiting a WMA, the atlas provides all the tools needed to understand the area, its topography and its boundaries, and a detailed set of driving directions to each WMA is listed in the back of the atlas. Additionally, index pages show where each featured WMA is located in the state, and a glossary of terms helps sportsmen distinguish differences between land usage terms such as "wildlife management area" (WMA), "game management area" (GMA), "national recreation area" (NRA), "wetland development unit" (WDU), "waterfowl refuge portion" (WRP) and others.

The "Oklahoma Wildlife Management Area Atlas" can be purchased for $25, which includes a free one-year subscription to Outdoor Oklahoma magazine, the official magazine of the Wildlife Department. Outdoor Oklahoma features everything related to hunting, fishing, wildlife watching and conservation in Oklahoma. Readers can catch the first glimpse of the Wildlife Department's annual "Big Game Report, get insider tips on fishing from the magazine's annual "Anglers' Guide," and read a range of articles and news about the outdoors in Oklahoma. Game meat recipes, how-to articles, stunning photography and more are all included.

The new atlases are available at the Wildlife Department headquarters in Oklahoma City (1801 N. Lincoln Blvd) and the Department's Jenks office (300 S. Aquarium Dr). Copies can also be ordered by phone at (405) 521-3856, and order forms can be downloaded from wildlifedepartment.com and mailed in with a check. To order by mail, send a check or money order for $25 along with an "Outdoor Store" order form from wildlifedepartment.com to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, P.O. Box 53465 Oklahoma City, OK 73152 (specify address to which atlas should be mailed and, if different, the address to which the subscription to Outdoor Oklahoma magazine should be credited).
