Longhorn sale not on refuge this year
In a dramatic departure from years past, the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge will not be having its 75th annual Texas longhorn sale on the refuge this year.
The sale will instead be held at Stockman Oklahoma Livestock Marketing Inc. (Apache Auction Market). The facility is 0.75 miles northwest of Apache, off of Oklahoma 19.
