CHANGES IN DEER, PHEASANT HUNTING
The number of antlerless deer hunting days in southeastern Oklahoma (zone 10) will increase next season.

During deer gun season, antlerless hunting will be allowed the first Saturday and Sunday, Thanksgiving Day through the following Sunday, and on the last two days of the season.
The commission also voted to reduce the daily bag limit of pheasants from three roosters to two.

ATV safety classes encouraged
Doctors and officials with ATV Ride Safe Oklahoma are urging people who drive all-terrain vehicles to take safety class.
At a news conference last week, Dr. Jason Lees, a trauma surgeon at OU Medical Center, said injuries from ATV accidents are common. He frequently sees bone fractures, head and internal injuries.
“Drivers of ATVs are much less protected than they are in cars,” he said.
At Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center, more than 30 children younger than age 15 have been treated for ATV-related injuries since Aug. 2011.
“The most significant injuries are the traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, said Justin Ramsey of The Children's Center in Bethany. “They have a life-changing impact for the victim and their family when it comes to rehabilitation.”
