Proposed Administrative Rule Changes


The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation is considering a number of rule changes, some simply housekeeping measures and some more substantial.

Each rule change proposal pertains to Title 800 of the Oklahoma Administrative Code. Title 800 is used by the Wildlife
Commission to set fish and wildlife rules. The links below will open the “strikeout and underline” version of the code,
where text with a line through it (strikeout) is proposed for deletion, and text underlined is proposed for addition.
Only those subchapters, sections and subsections with proposed changes are included.

If approved, changes to Chapters 1, 25 and 30 (see below) would go into effect July 1, 2012. Changes to Chapter 10 would go into effect January 1, 2013.

Chapter 1: Operations and Procedures
Chapter 10: Sport Fishing Rules
Chapter 25: Wildlife Rules
Chapter 30: Department of Wildlife Lands Management

Public Comment Period was December 1, 2011 – January 13, 2012.
