Tishomingo WMU is approximately 3,700 acres co-managed by ODWC and the USFWS to provide public hunting opportunities. The Washita River runs through the area providing large areas of river bottom flood plain habitat. The remainder of the area is a mix of hardwood timber hillsides with some agricultural fields. Many lakes and ponds are located on the area as well.
