    New Member, moving to Ft Sill 10 April 19

    Hi All, I'm moving to Ft Sill area on 10 April, and am really looking forward to some OK hunting. I've been hunting for a long time (25+ years), and now chase primarily ducks and doves. But I'd like to try my hand at some OK deer ... anything special I need to know before applying for special permits? I've lived in both Colo and Wash state (Wash is where I'm coming from) and the application processes are cumbersome, and you dang near need to be a Philly Lawyer to get them right. I hope OK is not the same. I don;t want to miss a hunting season because I missed some application deadline, etc. Note: I haven't bow hunted in over 10 years (since I left the FLA Panhandle), and I'm thinking I want to pick that up again. I'm thinking I'll probably need to stick to the Ft Sill Range (I'm retired military and being an Army civil servant is bringing me to Sill) unless y'all have any other suggestions. Of course, I'm not asking for honey holes or golden tickets, but just general 411. Thanks for all your help in advance! Cheers Frank

    We have a couple of members here that hunt that area. There is a lot of public access lands in the area as well that get very little pressure bow hunting. Since your retired military, I believe your eligible to hunt Ft Sill. Good success ratio on elk there.
    We have Controlled Hunts in Oklahoma for special regions. Log on to wildlifedepartment.com to learn about them and how to apply. It's actually pretty simple and the application won't let you complete it unless it's done right.
    Otherwise, get your resident hunting license when your eligible and hunt away during regular seasons.
    Your area will produce lots of ducks and doves.

    Welcome to the forum. Ft Sill has some great hunting and so does the surrounding area.

    Big turkey, big deer and elk on Ft. Sill and it's pretty easy to get access to hunt on the fort. You'll need to sit thru a 45min briefing on the rules on Sill which will explain the area designations, check in procedures and such. And like has been stated earlier, lot's of public access land available in that area with great game on it. Also, since your retired military, check on the discounted hunting/fishing license. If you have a VA rating 50%+ you get a really big discount.

    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    I love to hunt and fish and most of all spending time with my family after I get home from hunting and fishing.

    Hi all, thanks...I've been traveling so haven't been able to find time to get on forum. But thanks again for all info. Rick: I'll call you when I get down to Sill. I'm really interested in Wichita Mtn Waterfowlers. Frankly, the Wichitas are the main reason I accepted the job offer at Ft Sill. I was there in Spring 2017 and just fell in love with the area. I can't wait to explore more of them, and maybe hunt there too.
