I live in New Mexico and am considering retiring in Oklahoma. Is the land in Oklahoma BLM or federal land? Can you hunt there or is it all private land like Texas and you have to spend a fortune on hunting leases. Just curious.

I don't know. But I wish there was a lot more good, safe deer hunting going on in Oklahoma. There are far too many of those critters. They even seem to live in some wooded sections in Stillwater.

There are thousands upon thousands of acres open to hunting in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife manages public hunting and Wildlife Management Areas throughout the state. Google ODWC for their website. There you will find a list and maps of lands open for hunting. There is also approximately 50,000 acres of USFS land in the eastern part of the state open for hunting. Oklahoma also has a number of lakes constructed by the Corps of Engineers and much of the land around these lakes are also open to hunting. The Corp website will have downloadable maps of each lake showing the areas open to hunting.

Lots of great hunting in Southeastern Oklahoma. There are private as well as government and Weyerhaeuser Lumber Company land for hunting. The cost of living is relatively low in SE oklahoma as well. Great fishing, hunting, camping andbike riding.
