There is no public hunting on Ft Sill due to security, safety and the live-fire training mission of the installation. ODWC has coordinated this unique effort with Ft. Sill for a very special opportunity to harvest an either-sex elk on a guided hunt. This elk does not count against the statewide general limit and is a bonus elk.
Due to the hunt being conducted while Military training is ongoing, you will be escorted by a knowledgeable person to accompany you while in the field. This three-day escorted hunt will begin the morning of Wednesday, 5 January 2022 and conclude the evening of Friday, 7 January 2022, or upon your harvest whichever is first.
This hunt is conducted with your choice of method of take. The majority of shots are taken within 100 yards but there is often the opportunity for more lengthy shots in some of our open areas.
There is definitely nothing more breathtaking than an elk hunt on Ft. Sill, Oklahoma!
Gun hunts at Ft. Sill typically provide hunter shot opportunity for elk in the 70% to 80% range. It should be emphasized that what we are offering is a Western Hunting Experience. There are no guarantees on a “fair chase” hunt. Elk are a free roaming and wide-ranging animal.
The country they flourish in is tough. Hunting experience, physical conditioning, preparation, shooting ability, not to mention weather and hunting pressure, are all elements that will affect your hunt one way or the other.
We understand that many elk hunters both older and/or Handicapped/Disabled can no longer walk over or climb very rugged terrain. Based on your needs, we will cater to make your elk hunt as challenging, or easy, and successful as possible. There are many miles of roads around the installation that present many great opportunities to bag that Trophy Bull or Cow Elk. Don’t let physical capabilities deter you from applying for the opportunity to harvest a trophy of a lifetime.

Exempt from Hunter Education are anyone thirty-one (31) or older are exempt, any Honorably discharged Veteran from the U.S. Armed Forces, or anyone currently serving on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces or a member of the National Guard.
