At only 177 acres, Gist is a small WMA, located 6 miles northwest of Tipton in Tillman County.

The area is primarily North Fork of the Red River bottomland and is vegetated with sand plum thickets, cottonwoods, and tall grass species.

From Tipton: From stop light on State Hwy 5C, 2  miles north on N. Broadway Ave (CR 215), 2½ miles west on E1710.

Waterfowl: Small numbers may be present on the river during migration.  
Deer: White-tailed deer are present in low numbers.  
Dove: Doves may be present in small numbers during migration.
Quail: Bobwhite quail are present in low numbers. 
Rabbit: Cottontails may be present in fair numbers.  
Furbearers: Coyote, bobcat and raccoon may be available. 

Little management occurs on this area due to its very small size.  A dove feeding field is planted in most years.
