The Oklahoma Land Access Program (OLAP)

The Oklahoma Land Access Program (OLAP) enrolls private lands to allow public access for hunting, fishing, stream access and/or wildlife viewing. Accessing by foot, sportspersons can enter and use OLAP lands without obtaining special permission or paying a separate fee. The goal of the OLAP is to increase hunting, fishing and recreational opportunities in areas with limited public access.

Attention: All sportspersons using OLAP lands are responsible to know and understand the rules of the program, as well as the rules of each property. In addition to program rules, state and federal regulations apply. OLAP lands are considered Department-managed lands and all statewide regulations and license requirements apply. The program opens on Sept. 1, 2017.

Code of Conduct

  • Always think safety first and shooting game second.
  • Respect the landowner. The future of the program depends on the participation of landowners.
  • Pack it in, pack it out. If you see someone else’s trash, please pick it up.
  • Remember to pick up your shotgun hulls.
  • Don’t shoot over property boundaries.
  • Use access points, gates, or corners when available. Don’t stretch fence while crossing.
  • Respect fellow sportspersons and maintain a safe and appropriate distance.
  • Respect safety buffer zones.
