Guthrie is absolutely infested with turtles in the main creek, and said creek is also home to a large beaver. We see barred owls every now and then and once in a great while we'll see the great horned owl flying around. Awesome seeing something that large swoop through the air absolutely silent.
At Pecan park I had to step in a small stream to retrieve a poorly thrown drive, and after i stepped in the creek , something by my right foot got my attention. I look down and see the return gaze of a 4 foot long copperhead. We stared at each other for a minute, then he slowly slithered into the water like he owned the place. I promptly went home and changed my shorts.
