Appointed in October 2022 by Gov. Kevin Stitt, Tim Diehl will complete the unexpired term of the late Bill Brewster of Marietta, who had served as District 3 representative on the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission since July 2016.

“I am very pleased to have been given the opportunity to serve on the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission,” Diehl said. He is an avid hunter and has a passion for encouraging youths to get involved in hunting and fishing. He has coordinated and hosted youth events through the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.

“My father was an avid deer hunter and exposed me to hunting in southeast Oklahoma, and I have been hunting in the same area for over 40 years. It’s unbelievable the job the Wildlife Department has done in improving our wildlife resources since I was a kid hunting in southeast Oklahoma.”

Diehl is broker/owner of Southeastern Oklahoma Realty LLC in McAlester. He also serves on the board of directors for Bank NA in McAlester.

Diehl graduated from Lindsay High School and attended Oklahoma State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in marketing. He is a lifetime member of the NRA and member of the Oklahoma Wildlife Management Association.

Stitt also appointed Diehl to a regular eight-year term beginning in July 2023, which will require state Senate approval.

“I look forward to serving on the Commission, and protecting and growing our wildlife resources through good management practices," Diehl said.

He and his wife, Shelley, have two daughters and two grandsons.
