In partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, the refuge offers public deer hunts. These are by permit drawing only and done in order to keep hunters spaced out and to ensure public safety and a quality hunt. Accessible deer hunts and youth deer hunts are also held each year. Game birds and waterfowl hunts are conducted by the refuge and done on first come, first served basis. The refuge maintains approximately 1,200 acres suitable for upland game birds and waterfowl hunting on the north side of the refuge near Sand Creek.To learn more about the hunt season, contact the refuge.

Salt Plains National
Wildlife Refuge is the only known site in the world where unique selenite
crystals with hourglass inclusions are found. Because these crystals form in wet
soil, sand and clay, particles are included within the crystal giving them their
unique "hourglass" shape inside.
