Oklahoma is one of the best states in the nation for whitetail deer hunting, and it's big business for Oklahoma with an estimated total economic impact of over $600 million a year.
Fueling that deer hunting popularity is a management plan that serves our diverse hunters’ interests along with a strong education component outlining the benefits of balanced sex ratios and selective buck harvest.
