Area Acres
1,037 ac.

The Grady County Wildlife Management Area encompasses 1,036 acres located about 4 ½ miles east of Rush Springs, Oklahoma in Grady County. This WMA is about equally divided between two non-contiguous tracts with an additional 33 acre non-contiguous tract located between the other two. The area is characterized by open uplands bisected by wooded draws and creeks typical of the interspersed postoak-blackjack oak and tall grass prairie habitat types.

  • Quail: Present but in low numbers
  • Turkey: Rio Grande turkey are transient through the area.
  • Deer: White-tailed deer inhabit the area.
  • Rabbit: Cottontail rabbits inhabit the area.
  • Furbearers: Coyote, bobcat, raccoon and other common furbearers inhabit the area.
  • Dove: Some local doves are occasionally present.
  • Waterfowl: Various species of waterfowl may occasionally utilize the small ponds located on the wma. 

Prescribed fire and periodic grazing may be utilized to enhance wildlife habitat.


Limited fishing opportunity exists. Most ponds located on the wma are small enough to cast a lure clear across.
