    Beavers are what scare me about noddlin. Most guys who have done this for years have encountered a beaver I think.

    We've had gators for years in SE OK. We were scoping a project (SH-259) in McCurtain Co 5-6 years ago and I had set a new alignment to correct the horrible geometry. We were going to have to walk the alignment later until the environmental report came out mentioning gators as a protected Species and then no one wanted to walk that line LOL. We farmed out that project to a consultant.
    I think there are some in Texoma lake as well

    There have been gators in the Red River and up the tributaries into McCurtain County for decades. I did some work around several creeks in the area for a year and a half, but never saw a gator.

    Also, the alligators are Federally protected due to “similarity of appearance” to crocodiles, which are Federally listed.

    The signs are still up at the lake saying the are there. My stepmom is an officer manager at one of the marinas, but we have never seen one.

    Gators have been removed by game wardens from Broken Bow lake over the years. I know of an 11 footer killed in a farm pond South of Broken Bow by a game warden.
