Sardis Camp


A couple of my friends joined me and two of my dogs for an overnight on my land along Lake Sardis in south eastern Oklahoma.  We paddled in and found a nice place to camp.  Curley used his harness and travois to help pull gear into camp.  Bruce Day and I scouted out the boundaries of the property and Ed Bradway got a fire going and cooked up a tremendous supper.  We saw plenty of deer sign, some squirrels, geese and even a bear bed.  Bruce found some droppings he is sure were from elk.  I hope so, because my lifetime hunting license allows me to hunt elk every year in Oklahoma!


Just after dark, the dogs alerted us to some deer moving through the woods just uphill of our camp.  The morning of our departure dawned foggy and overcast.  We did a little more exploring and canoed out on a lake as smooth as glass.  What a beautiful day!


I am feeling very blessed to have found such a great piece of land for my camping and hunting adventures!  Being on a good fishing lake makes it extra special!

    WOW Gabe, that’s sweet! Bet there’s some catfish in that lake that would put a bend in your rod!

    Bass are fun to catch but nothing beats catfish for eating, baked, fried or best of all, smoked!
