A BRIEF HISTORY
The earliest signs of Antlers began in the mid-1880s with a pair of antlers tacked to a tree to mark a nearby spring, followed shortly thereafter with the establishment of a post office. The town also consisted of a mercantile business, a few churches, a sawmill, and a railroad depot when it was officially incorporated in 1903.
Antlers is now the county seat of Pushmataha County and spans 3.11 square miles.
Antlers Public Schools, home of the bearcats, serve over 1,011 students.* The schools include Brantly Elementary, O’Buch Middle School, and Antlers High School.
Antlers is also home to a branch of Kiamichi Tech, where students can obtain a quality education for a specialized career in a relatively short amount of time.

Grab a cooler and some rods for the short 30-minute trip to Hugo Lake, and make a day of reeling in largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, and shortnose gar. Or tiptoe through the dense forest as you hunt for quail, white-tailed deer, or turkey during their respective seasons. Plus, the portion of Pushmataha County remains one of the few places in Oklahoma where you can hunt black bears.
