Are Mechanical Broadheads Legal in Oklahoma?

BROADHEADS: There have been some questions concerning the use of mechanical or "open upon impact" broadheads. They are legal to use in Oklahoma as long as they are at least 7/8 inches wide when they open on impact.

Crossbow / Mechanical Bow Draw Device Usage - The use of crossbows and conventional longbows with a device that permits the bow to be held mechanically at full or partial draw are legal hunting methods during any open season when conventional longbows (archery equipment) are a legal means of take. See individual species’ regulations for any draw weight, bolt length and broadhead size requirements.
