On Wednesday, March 30, 2011 the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation spent the day cleaning up and repairing the Kiamichi Bridge Park on HWY. 271 just outside of Antlers.
The ODWC owns approximately three acres of land at this location and it is open to the public as a park, complete with a swinging bridge, picnic tables, restrooms and a boat ramp leading into the Kiamichi River.
A site in Pushmataha County has been selected by CRU (Clean Renewable Utility) Energy Corporation as a possible location for the construction of a 1-Megawatt power plant.

Thirty-one members of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club competed in a team bass tournament on April 2, 2011 at Sardis Lake. The tournament began at "safe light" with temperatures in the low 40â€™s and ended at 4:00 p.m. with temperatures in the low 80â€™s. Catching a keeper proved to be difficult as half of the anglers were unable to bring a keeper bass to the final weigh-in. Those who were able to find some "keeper" bass were able to put together some nice stringer weights.
