From the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation
-- Regulation changes can be found in the new 2010-11 Oklahoma Hunting Guide, available now for free where hunting licenses are sold in the state, or online at www. wildlifedepartment.com.
Among the changes, hunters can enjoy expanded antlerless deer and elk opportunities and use a crossbow during any hunting season open to archery equipment. Hunters also have more licensing options, and will be required to follow some new field tagging and game checking requirements.
The 62-page guide provides regulations for hunting in Oklahoma as well as a wide range of hunting-related articles and other helpful information. Hunters can sharpen wildlife identification skills, view biological data on some of the most popular wild game species and learn about different programs and projects of the Wildlife Department.
The guide includes a detailed 2010-11 sunrise/sunset table to help plan hunts around legal shooting hours.
Find the book online at http://www.wildlifedepartment.com/huntregs.htm. Other online resources include the most recent Oklahoma Fishing Guide, interactive topography maps and a wealth of other information relating to hunting, angling, wildlife viewing and other wildlife conservation.
Sportsmen can purchase hunting and fishing licenses online, or sign up for a free weekly news release from the Wildlife Department sent to an email inbox. The free news release also contains a weekly fishing report from lakes and other fisheries as well as seasonal reports on waterfowl activity across the state.
