License - Hunting and Fishing


The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation receives no general state tax revenues and is proud to be funded entirely by sportsmen. We take our responsibility seriously to conserve the state’s wildlife for future generations and provide you with the best recreational opportunities possible.

Every time you purchase a hunting or fishing license in Oklahoma, you are helping fund wildlife conservation in our state. The majority of the Department’s money is obtained through the sale of licenses. These monies go toward managing the fish and game species across the state. When you provide habitat for one species, all species in the area benefit--from largemouth bass to turtles, from white-tailed deer to song birds--all species are helped. Buying licenses has helped bring back the wild turkey to populations rivaling those found here around the turn of the 20th century. It has helped bring fish species to our state that our fathers could only dream of: striped bass, saugeye, trout and hybrid stripers (a cross between white bass and striped bass).
