Well, looks like us bowhunters who are not handicapped or elderly will finally be able to use Crossbows in Oklahoma's archery season. Or technically, any season where archery tackle is legal, which is the entire deer season practically! All I can say is, it's about time! Oklahoma crossbow hunting is now a reality!
Wow, imagine my excitement when I learned that Oklahoma would have its first Bear Season! I found out when I picked up the new wildlife regulation booklet at Wal-Mart about two weeks ago. I noticed that Oklahoma's Bear Season would coincide with the Black Powder season and that got me into a planning mode. I was making plans to head down to the mountains and do a little Deer hunting with the hopes of getting one of the first Black Bears in Oklahoma.
For those of you who put in for the Oklahoma Controlled Hunts, you'd better get over to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife's website and enter before the May 15th deadline.
Starting this year, applications will only be taken online. So don't be looking for the booklets at Wal-Mart or your favorite Sporting Goods stores because they won't be there.
