McAlester, Okla. - The Oct. 12-14 and Oct. 19-21 traditional archery deer hunts at the McAlester Army Ammunition have been cancelled for security reasons. Hunters who were drawn for these two hunts for this year will automatically qualify to hunt the McAlester AAP next year.
Controlled archery deer hunts began at the AAP Oct. 4 and were scheduled to conclude the weekend of Nov. 9 - 11. Security conditions and concerns will dictate whether or not the remainder of the hunts continue.
Hunters scheduled to participate in future hunts at the McAlester AAP can check the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation^s Web site at www.wildlifedepartment.com for status updates concerning the hunts.
