IF you can locate to the WESTERN portion of the state ... as the duck hunting is better as a rule ... simply more ROW CROPS go'n on! Less water overall ... but still more in that " arid " part of the state than in most other " arid " areas of adjoining states. Still lots of Stock Ponds , Man Made Lakes Rivers and the like!
I live in the middle of the state and run all over it. Overall I prefer the Western Part of the state ... but maybe that's just me ... FIELD HUNT'N DUCKS just don't seem right to me ... no judging those that do ... but we is SUPPOSED TO SHOOT DUCKS OVER WATER!
The previous poster pretty well nailed the east ... but ... left one important item out and that is ... GET A BOAT ... hell get one regardless of which part of the state you live in ... but especially in the East! Oklahoma has more SHORELINE MILEAGE than any other state in the Union with most of that being provided by Stock Ponds, WaterSheds and Lakes .... ALL MAN MADE!
While the western man mades are fairly shallow compared to the eastern lakes ... merely the difference between running water out on a flat surface and filling up a valley between two MOUNTAINS!
Some of the lakes that we like to hunt when we was younger and run'n wild was , Hugo, Broken Bow, Tenkiller , Little River State Park, Grand Lake and on and on it goes! THere are also a large number of Smaller Municipal Water Supply Lakes and most of these you can shoot for a daily $3.00 Fee! It is true that there are fewer man made ponds BUT there are quite a few what the locals call SLOUGHS that lie well up on the mountains. CYPRESS SWAMPS is more like it and they usually have a lot of Hardwoods and especially Pin Oaks all over. These are tightly held to the vest spots though and you don't just get out walk over and BLOW'EM UP!
Oh yeah almost forgot about Red Slough ... when it's got water and you don't mind fight'n the Damn Tejasicans ... a guy can shoot a limit!
P.S. ... If your ever in state or have time to come down and spend say a week with me and my buddies we can give you the Nickle Dime Tour of our PRIVATES that lie in the South Central part of the state. I got a small well equipped Hunt'n/Fish'n Cabin that you can stay in so's it won't cost you nuth'n 'cept for vittles and of course say a bottle of FINE SIP'N WHISKEY!
