September 17, 2009 was the date of the 66th Annual Texas Longhorn Auction at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.  Approximately 300 people attended this year's auction, with a total of 78 registered buyers bidding on 185 longhorn, and eight longhorn and bison skulls.  Some local and area schools turned out for field trips to observe animal behavior, and teachers also use the sales information to create math curricula for students.  The Lawton Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Friends of the Wichitas are annual partners supporting the Refuge on auction day.
