    MattM37, I live within 11 miles of the Red River. One place I hunt, I'm within 50 yards of Red River and can see into Texas.

    Texas deer season opens Nov 1 and runs through about Jan 15.
    Oklahoma has a 9 day (Sat through the following Sunday) Primitive Arms (muzzle loader) season.
    Deer - Regular Gun opens the Saturday before Thanksgiving and closes the first Sunday in December. Two weeks! (16 days)
    Oklahoma also has a one week (9 day) "Bonus Antlerless" season between Christmas and New Years.

    If you're an Oklahoma hunter and not an archery hunter, trigger time is short. Holding out for a "bigger buck" may mean no meat in the freezer.

    Oklahoma has gazoodles of deer!
    Why the hell can't WE have a 2 month season too?

    I probably need to quit complaining. When we moved up here in 2002, season was only 9 days! (one week!)

    Personally, I think that because we only have a short season, it encourages people who may not have time to get out to poach.
    If you can't find a couple of days or a weekend or two in a two month season, you don't need to be hunting anyway!

    P.S. - Texas and Oklahoma have similar "Archery" seasons. Oct 1 through about mid Jan.

    Lifetime NY license is a credit card type and size license. Only tags are paper.

    I buy most online. The amount of buying has diminished though since I have a lifetime license in Georgia where I do most of my hunting and fishing.

    You buy the license then you have to buy a $20 deer tag. To fully tag out, seven deer, it costs $140 for tags. That's $196 for all deer tags. Then there is the turkey tags. Three annually, so figure another $30.
    So, for a full year, tags and license will cost a resident hunter $226!
    That doesn't include access fees to some of Oklahoma's management areas.
    Oh yeah, Fed Duck stamp.

    In Texas, you purchase a "Combination Hunting and Fishing" license. I think it's like, $75 now.
    That comes with all appropriate annual tags for whitetail, mule deer and turkeys.
    There is an archery stamp and some salt water fishing stamps or tags, but for the single sum, you get all the tags you're allowed in a year.

    I buy online and then print for signing. No tag lottery here. I don't hunt waterfowl so no federal stamp and I don't fish saltwater. Total $86.05 including freshwater fishing and plastic wallet card.

    Here's last year's receipt. In three years I'll be 65 and that means free Resident Hunting and Fishing, saving about $50

    I bought a Redding "Powder & Bullet" scale out of a pawn shop years ago. The wife was looking at the instruction "book" (an 8.5×10 sheet of paper folded twice) when something fell out.
    It was an unsigned 1959 Federal Duck Stamp!
    I paid $20 for the scale.
    The stamp is worth +/-$80! 😳!

    We do still have to put in for DMP’s. I usually go to the town clerk for those. A few years back I was at a big box so figured to save a trip I’d take care of it then. I qualify for a guaranteed landowner tag but the girl screwed up the application and I got turned down. Won’t be doing that again. I could go online but it’s not that big of a deal to stop in town, plus I leave with whatever tags in hand rather than wait and chance the mail.

    So Matt, what did you end up drawing? First or second choice or both?
    I had two of our land's WMA last year, went for both again this year, knowing I'd probably just get the one, which is how it went. Past two or three years, I haven't specified any different WMA for second choice -- when I used to, I'd always get the one asked for, but then I'd never actually get over there to hunt. If there's a chance for two permits right here at home, I'll take it. Come to think of it, I never did look yesterday at the chart for the odds on getting the second one. That's okay, one's enough -- especially since I'll probably have a good freezerful from that Opening Day buck. Yep, mmm-hmm.

    Here's an article from 2017. It says they sold about 20 thousand of them that year.
    Thanks for finding that. I do remember there being some disagreement about what it was used for.

    For a while they were sending out nice little pins when you got one. I kinda shook my head about that, wondering if maybe it had cost more to make the pins than the stamp sale brought in -- but it was a nice gesture and they were nice pins.

    Just put in for my lifetime, doesn't include deer or turkey.Did not get drawn for bear.(1st year Missouri has a season so it would have been cool to just have 1) Usually I buy my tag whenever I think about it when I'm somewhere that sells them. We are an any deer state so no special tag for does, although if you know you'll be shooting only a doe and can let a buck walk you can purchase a doe only tag for $7. Same for units that allow extra does to taken, just buy aover the counter antlerlese tag and go. Tags aren't unit specific.
