In spite of the drought Greer County continues to be a place where outdoors men continue to come and it’s mostly because of the Sandy Sanders Wildlife Management Area. In the past year Sandy Sanders has added about 10,566 acres due to the purchase of two farms. It now spreads over 29,766 acres in three counties. It has about 40 acres in Harmon County with the remainder spread out over Greer and Beckham County. Approximately 60% is in Beckham County with the remaining acres in Greer County. The original area was purchased in 1986 with additional land added in 1989 and 1991.
