Oklahoma Whitetail Hunting

Congrats on a nice buck.
 
I’m just south of you in North Texas. I visit OK to go fly fishing and the wildlife dept does an excellent job managing that land.
 
This buck was off of my family's ranch in Southwestern Oklahoma. Duncan area. Just East of Lawton, Ok.
First time I went deer hunting in OK was in Velma. Not much to write home about, that was back in 97. Deer were few and far between. Happy to see the numbers coming up.

Congratulations on a NICE buck!

I'm very familiar with that area! We would always to to the Black Kettle WMA in Central western Oklahoma. Let me know if you ever venture into Arizona! We have great hunting out here!

The home of Joe Diffie! The sign says so anyway. Deer are THICK here now
 
Outstanding deer! Congratulations

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.
Just to elaborate on this statement because it speaks volumes to the overall success of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation and the concept of “Sustainable Conservation”. The federal grants you speak of come from the Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937 (Pitman/Robertson Act). This is an extra tax on ammunition, firearms, and other fishing and hunting equipment. This act can fund up to 75% of a state’s wildlife management program. Distribution of this money to each state is based on the number of hunting and fishing licenses sold in the state. As a hunter, make sure to explain to your friends that “just shoot” that they need to buy a hunting license, cheapest one available, in order to get this money back into your state. Those shooter friends spend a large amount of money on ammunition and contribute greatly the Wildlife Restoration Act and they don’t know they do.

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….
