The fiscal-year licenses (combination, youth combination) are valid from July 1 to June 30. These licenses allow fishing during the time period specified on the license.
Resident 5-Year Combination Hunting/Fishing License
People who have been residents of Oklahoma for at least six months may buy a 5-year combination hunting/fishing license. Holders of these licenses are exempt from the annual fishing and hunting license only. Holders of resident 5-year licenses who become residents of another state during the 5-year period of their license may continue to use their license as a nonresident annual fishing or hunting license. When hunting, they must buy any season-specific hunting licenses that are not covered by a nonresident annual hunting license.
Lifetime Senior Citizen Combination Hunting/Fishing License
Residents born on or after Jan. 1, 1923, upon reaching age 65 (or those who turn 65 during the calendar year) are eligible to buy a senior citizen combination hunting/fishing license, which is valid for life. The license provides the same exemptions as a resident lifetime combination hunting/fishing license. Anyone born before Jan. 1, 1923, is exempt but must carry proof of age such as a driver’s license.
Disability Fishing License
Persons who have resided in Oklahoma for at least six months and who are receiving Social Security disability benefits, Supplemental Security Income benefits, or persons receiving disability benefits under the Federal Railroad Retirement Act or the Multiple Injury Trust Fund may buy a five-year disability fishing license for $10.
Lifetime Disabled Veteran Combination Hunting/Fishing License
This license is available to resident disabled veterans, as certified by the Veterans Affairs Department. For veterans with a disability of less than 60 percent, the cost of the license is $200. For veterans with a disability of 60 percent or more, the cost of the license is $25. The license provides the same benefits as a resident lifetime combination hunting/fishing license.
Land Access Permit
A $40 annual Land Access Permit is required of all residents who fish or hunt on Honobia Creek and Three Rivers Wildlife Management Areas, unless exempt. Nonresidents are required to buy an $85 annual permit, no exemptions.
Wildlife Conservation Passport
Unless exempt, people who enter or use designated Wildlife Department lands are required to purchase a Wildlife Conservation Passport. Exemptions include those who hold a valid Oklahoma resident or nonresident annual, combination or lifetime hunting/fishing license, senior citizen lifetime hunting/fishing license, or disability hunting/fishing license. Also exempt are residents younger than 18 at the start of the year, and students or instructors on tours or activities sanctioned by ODWC.
