Here is a glance at the wildlife-related bills that have been introduced this legislative session and are still active.

Senate Bill 16: Would make it where holders of lifetime hunting licenses in Oklahoma would not have to buy a bear hunting license.

Senate Bill 216: Would require hunting guides to possess a hunting guide license from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, which would establish requirements for the license. The bill establishes a license fee of $100 for residents and $300 for non-residents.

Senate Bill 324: Would make it legal to noodle for blue catfish and channel catfish. Currently, only flathead catfish in Oklahoma are legal to catch and keep by hand-fishing.

Senate Bill 780: Would increase the minimum amount a person could be fined for improperly disposing of wildlife from $100 to $500.

Senate Bill 819: Would allow disabled persons to use laser sights for hunting.

Senate Bill 875: Would add elk to the list of wildlife nuisance species for which the Wildlife Department could issue depredation tags to control.

Senate Bill 919: Would allow aerial hunting of depredating wildlife with a permit from the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry.
