I've already tried Googling OK wildlife regulations and laws but there was too much info to weed through, and I wasn't able to find something in regards to private land hunting in rural areas.

I know that hunting licenses are required and there are seasons to hunt certain animals, but does this apply to those who hunt on their own property?

It's just a general curiosity question. I don't personally hunt or even own a gun.

I'm not a hunter either, but my assumption would be for you to contact the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife.

I was hoping someone here would know the answer so I wouldn't have to call them.

I can't speak to the hunting laws in OK, as we've never hunted here, but I can tell you from personal experience that in Texas you are required to have a license on your own private property. DH hunts there every year on a friends private ranch, and yes, they all have to have them. I would think it would be the same here.

Yes you have to have a hunting license even for your own land. Not that anyone does.

From: License Exemptions | Oklahoma Hunting Guide | eRegulations.com

Landowners or Tenants
Resident landowners or tenants who hunt only on land owned or leased by them (not including hunting leases) are exempt from the hunting license. Resident landowners who hunt waterfowl and other migratory game birds only on their own property are exempt from the Oklahoma waterfowl license and HIP requirements.
Only resident landowners or tenants or such individuals’ children who trap on land owned or leased by such owners or tenants (not including hunting leases) are exempt from purchasing a trapping license.
Persons residing in another state who own land in Oklahoma but do not live on that land are considered nonresidents and are not exempt.
