I have great respect for public land because I taught myself how to hunt on Blue River public hunting with my recurve bow. I come from a non-hunting family that doesn’t own acreage so I rely on public land and controlled hunts for a majority of my hunting experiences. I’ve been applying for the controlled hunts for 10 years, and I finally drew in for a hunt this year.
ODWC controls the situations not the hunt, so if you are looking for an inexpensive way to explore Oklahoma hunting, check out controlled hunting at www.wildlifedepartment.com.
