LOCATION: The ranch is located 20 minutes east of Antlers, OK and 2 miles north of Rattan, OK. From downtown Rattan, go east on Highway 3 for ½ mile before turning left onto Cloudy Road. Take Cloudy Road for 2.4 +/- miles before turning left on N4295 Rd. The entrance to the ranch will be on your left in 0.5 +/- miles.

WILDLIFE & HUNTING: Pushmataha County is one of the premier hunting counties in the state of Oklahoma, commonly referred to as the ‘Deer Capital of the World’. Pushmataha County whitetails first came into prominence in 2007 with two Oklahoma State Record deer being harvested just ten days apart. The new state record would score 194” B&C with only one deduction, with the second-place buck donning 21-points and scoring 192 5/8 B&C. These bucks still stand today as the #1 and #2 Typical Whitetails killed in Oklahoma. A lack of hunting pressure, a short rifle season and large blocks of privately held land, including the permit-only hunting allowed on the 1.8 million-acre Weyerhaeuser timber plantation to the north have allowed the whitetail population to develop and expand world class genetics throughout the area.

In addition to deer, Pushmataha County is one of the few counties that offers a hunting season for Black Bear. Muzzleloader season runs from Oct. 26 – Nov. 3, 2019. The Oklahoma Wildlife Department sets a quota every year for the number of bears harvested via muzzleloader, the 2019 quota is 20 bears (there is no harvest quota for bears harvested in archery season). Archery season is open in Latimer, Le Flore, McCurtain and Pushmataha Counties only with 2019 season running from Oct. 1st – 20th.
Prized and highly-sought-after Eastern Turkey are another unique game species found on the ranch. Feral hogs, dove, duck, geese, coyotes, bobcat, cougar, minks, bats, bald eagles, woodpeckers, owls, falcons and over 328 vertebrate species are native to this region of Pushmataha County and the greater ‘Kiamichi Country’. The diversity of habitat and variety of species make for a special and unique wildlife asset on the Third Day Ranch.
TREE COVER & WILDLIFE HABITAT: The entirety of the property is wooded with a strong collection of pine, elm, oak, cottonwood, sycamore, and other trees common to the area. The diversity of vegetation, cover, reliable water sources, and natural travel corridors created by the landscape all combine to provide top-tier wildlife habitat.
LAKE OZZIE COBB: Lake Ozzie Cobb is located 6+/- miles northeast of Rattan in Pushmataha County adjacent to and just northeast of the Third Day Ranch. Constructed in 1958 by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, there is primitive camping and a boat ramp providing good access. The lake is 116+/- surface acres with a volume of 833-acre feet and 3.8 miles of shoreline. Average depth is 7.2 feet and maximum depth is 22 feet. The largemouth bass lake record stands at 12 lbs. 10 ounces.
“The habitat around the lake consists of cattails, rush, lilies, and water willow. A large portion of the north and northeast part of the lake is very shallow. The lake has four marked fish attractors made up of brush piles. Staff refurbished these attractors in 2011. The fishing jetty was completed in 2011. Also in 2011, staff began applying aquatic herbicide to reduce excessive vegetation.”
