General County Information

County Seat: Antlers

Nestled between the Jack Fork Mountains and the Kiamichi Mountains, Pushmataha County is a paradise for those who hunt, fish, and love the outdoors. It is the heart of the deer country and the mecca for hunting and fishing. Antlers, the county seat of Pushmataha County, named for the numerous antlers left by Indian hunters, is the gateway to the Kiamichi Mountains. The county is a popular area for fall foliage and spring dogwood tours. Nature-lovers and sportsmen alike can enjoy an abundant supply of fish, birds, and wildlife and plenty of unspoiled trails, mountains, creeks, rivers, and lakes.
