    Short answer is yes...search for "Pottawatomie" (the county Shawnee is in) on this site, and you will find some relevant posts. I'll defer to OK locals on what trees to targets, since I'm in DFW. Mid march may be a touch early depending on the year. I'm always out scouting in central TX and along the Red River in mid-march but rarely find much until close to April 1.
