Located in the south central part of the United States, Oklahoma has a wide variety of species and seasons to keep hunters outside year round. Big game animals include white-tailed deer, black bear, pronghorn, and elk. For hunters with sights set on the sky, Oklahoma has quality waterfowl hunting across the entire state, as well as dove, crane, snipe and woodcock. Arguably the best kept secret in the Sooner State is the large number of WMAs and the Oklahoma Land Access Program (OLAP), which together provide expanded opportunity for wild bobwhite quail hunting.
Boasting more than 200 lakes and over one million surface acres of water, Oklahoma has been considered by many as a paradise for fishermen. Popular catches across the state include largemouth bass, spotted bass, channel catfish, blue catfish, and sauger. While not native to the waters of Oklahoma, both brown and rainbow trout have been introduced and are stocked periodically throughout the year.
