I remember when I was younger it was not uncommon to hunt all season (rifle) and not see a buck. Back then you could only shoot a doe on the last day if you were not able to fill your buck tag. Of course, you never seemed to see a doe on the last day either! Ha!

Now today I hunt mostly with a bow but also still pull out the rifle from time to time. But what a change since I was a kid and what a testament to wildlife conservation funded and managed by hunters. In Oklahoma the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife receives no state appropriation or general tax revenue. Funded by hunting/fishing license sales and federal grants primarily.

Now, I see deer almost every time I go out. Maybe not a big mature buck, but they are out there. More than ever before... bigger and more mature!

Wow, what a beauty! Congrats!
 
Nice buck!! I lived in Oklahoma for 33yrs and I can attest to hardly ever seeing any bucks. I saw a big 12pt buck, but he was lucky and was on private land.. LOL
 
Awesome!
 
Very nice buck! Congrats!
 
Great deer. Love the character of that buck. Definitely one to be proud of. Thanks for sharing.

Yes. I like the split brow. He definitely had character. Thank you!
 
That buck you shot is a dandy!! What part of Oklahoma are you in? I grew up in the Midwest City/Oklahoma City area..
This buck was off of my family's ranch in Southwestern Oklahoma. Duncan area. Just East of Lawton, Ok.
 
Neat buck- Congrats !!

Have a look af our latest post on the biggest roan i ever guided on!


I realize how hard the bug has bit. I’m on the cusp of safari #2 and I’m looking to plan #3 with my 11 year old a year from now while looking at my work schedule for overtime and computing the math of how many shifts are needed….
