There are numerous types of hunting licenses available in Oklahoma, depending on which kind of game the hunter might be interested in hunting. Whether the hunter is a resident or nonresident of Oklahoma also is a factor in license requirements.

According to state regulations, anyone applying for a hunting license must provide proof of residency, typically in the form of a valid driver’s license. In lieu of a valid driver’s license, other documentation may be considered such as tax returns, voter registration, or motor vehicle registration.

There are also a number of special licenses and permits. Fiscal year licenses apply to both youth hunting and nonresident hunting among other situations. There are lifetime senior citizen hunting licenses, disability hunting licenses, and lifetime disabled veteran combination hunting licenses.

Price is also an important item to consider before purchasing a license or permit. Prices vary widely in Oklahoma, so hunters should verify current costs. Typically, though, prices range from $9 for youth hunting to $625 for lifetime hunting. Another thing to keep in mind with regard to licenses is the failure to obtain one. Punishment for hunting without a license can include fines and time in jail.

Once all ducks are in a row with licensing, hunters in Oklahoma are ready to enjoy the sport in one of the best states for it.
