With Oklahoma's spring turkey season and fishing opportunities upon us, sportsmen traveling to Oklahoma from out-of-state are urged to know and adhere to guidelines and advisories pertaining to the spread of COVID-19.

Governor Kevin Stitt has issued a statewide Executive Order that requires individuals to quarantine for 14 days once entering Oklahoma from states where significant community spread of COVID-19 has been identified, which currently includes New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Louisiana, California, Washington.

Wildlife Department Fishing Report for 4/1/20

The Wildlife Department reminds sportsmen that the outdoors are always open and encourages effective social distancing while hunting or fishing. Wildlife Department offices are closed to visitors statewide, but you can still get your hunting and fishing license online. 


We manage and protect fish and wildlife, along with their habitats, while also growing our community of hunters and anglers, partnering with those who love the outdoors, and fostering stewardship with those who care for the land.
