Velvet Buck Season Coming To Oklahoma?

Velvet buck season coming to Oklahoma? Senate Bill 910 has passed through the Senate and is moving on for consideration by the House of Representatives. The bill comes from Senator Blake Stephens, who is an avid hunter and is hoping to increase the deer season in Oklahoma

The plan behind the bill is for a 9-day archery season to take place in late August. The season opener would kick off Saturday morning prior to the last weekend in August, and end Sunday evening on the last weekend of August. 

Hunters wishing to participate in the velvet season will need to a hunting license and velvet buck tag. The season would last 9 days There would be a set number of permits, established by the Oklahoma Wildlife Commission, and hunters would draw for a permit (90% of velvet buck tags would go to Oklahoma residents)

If you are lucky to tag out on a velvet buck this will count against your 2 buck limit in Oklahoma. This project will kick off on private lands and grow from there. Adding this season will put Oklahoma in line with some of its neighbors like Tennessee that already offer a velvet buck season.
