Public Input Needed On Proposed New Deer Hunting Rules In Oklahoma

Posted:

Starting Monday December 3rd, Oklahoma hunters can sound off on the Wildlife Department's proposal to lower the buck limit. They're talking about dropping the limit to one for the combined deer muzzleloader and gun seasons beginning next year. The public comment on the proposed regulation will remain open until January 11th.

Deer hunters would be allowed a total of two bucks. But under the proposal, one buck would have to be taken with a bow and the other harvested during either muzzleloader or gun season. Bow hunters could still fill both buck tags during archery season.

The proposal is a way the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife can manage the state's deer herd for bigger or trophy bucks.
