It's in your hands to make this happen!
I failed to add that we suggested that Instead of requiring Game Warden permission, they change it to Game Warden notification, where a voice mail or text would be sufficient.
There are a number of proposals on the comments link I hadn't read about.
I hope the governor doesn't add Bloodtracking Services to her new tax list.
From Wildlife Department: A list of annual rule changes and additions was approved unanimously Monday by the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission during its regular meeting in Oklahoma City. These changes and additions to Title 800, the rules that govern operations of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, were proposed in December and went through a public comment period in January. They will now be sent to the State Legislature and the governor for approval and, if approved, they will become effective later this year. Among the notable rule changes and additions are: Allow deer hunters, without carrying any method of take, to use a leashed dog to recover downed deer, provided the hunter has notified a game warden before using the dog to track the downed deer. Add rules, regulations, and definitions for the new Oklahoma Land Access Program (OLAP) including exemption from written permission for hunting antelope and elk on actively enrolled OLAP properties. Add rules to allow landowners and their designee to shoot feral hogs at night on their property. This feral hog rule is currently in effect in emergency status. Close waters in the northeastern part of the state to snagging from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., except for the Neosho River snagging area at Miami City Park. Prohibit the stocking of any aquatic organisms into public waters of the state without permission from the Wildlife Department.
