Hagerman Wildlife Refuge near Sherman, TX

Whether you are here to view wildlife, fish for crappie or catfish, or to enjoy a little peace and quiet, you will find Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge a place rich in nature and history where it is easy to imagine an era of vast herds of wild animals grazing the prairies and the darkening of skies from flocking birds. 

Nestled in south central Oklahoma, the refuge was established in 1946 to benefit migratory waterfowl in the Central Flyway and help conserve America’s wildlife heritage for current and future generations. It is an overlay of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Denison Dam Project, also known as Lake Texoma, and is open to the public for wildlife-dependent recreation.

Tishomingo Refuge is part of the National Wildlife Refuge System, a national network of lands and waters managed for the benefit of wildlife, habitat and you

Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1946 as an overlay of a portion of the Big Mineral arm of Lake Texoma in north-central Texas. Consisting of about 12,000 acres, the refuge provides a variety of habitats for birds and wildlife.  

Canada, snow, white-fronted, and Ross' geese along with pintail, mallard, gadwall and other ducks use refuge impoundments and fields as stop-over and wintering grounds.  Just 75 miles north of Dallas where the Red River etches the boundary between Oklahoma and Texas, migratory birds by the thousands take up winter quarters or refuel for long journeys. Some species spend the entire winter 'loafing' on the refuge, including, Ross’s, Greater White-fronted and Canada Geese.  At times, as many as 10,000 geese can be seen in one field. Ducks such as mallards, northern shovelers, green-winged teal, and northern pintail are commonly seen on refuge waters during fall and winter months
