Elk season is now closed in two of Oklahoma’s seven private-lands hunting zones. As of Monday, hunters in the Southeast Zone had harvested the season quota of five elk, and hunters in the Special Northwest Zone had harvested the season quota of two elk. Elk archery season remains open on private lands in the other five zones; Northeast, Northwest, Panhandle, Southwest and Special Southwest zones.
The status of elk harvest quotas is updated daily online at http://www.wildlifedepartment.com. Hunters must check the harvest quota status before going afield to ensure the season remains open for the zone in which they intend to hunt.
