Deer hunting season opened in Oklahoma Nov. 22. As many hunters begin to seek their prize buck, deer are seeking refuge. Luckily for the wildlife of Cookson, near Lake Tenkiller, Terrapin Peak offers a safe and welcoming environment akin to their natural habitat setting.

Situated on 9 acres of land, Terrapin Peak allots plenty of space for wildlife to roam in a comfortable and safe setting. With the implementation of deer feeding stations, wildlife friends are always encouraged to leave with a full stomach.
