Sunday is a free hunting day in the state. Hunters do not need to carry a state hunting license or a HIP (Harvest Information Program) permit to dove hunt.

Squirrel hunting also is in season.


The Oklahoma City Police Department's annual drawing for duck blinds on Lake Overholser and Lake Draper will be Wednesday and Saturday.

The drawing for spots on Lake Overholser will begin at 8 p.m. on Wednesday at the Lake Overholser pavilion, 1200 E Overholser Drive. The drawing for Draper Lake will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday at the lake marina, located east of SE 104th and W Draper Drive.

Participants must be age 18 or older and hold a current Oklahoma City hunting permit and an Oklahoma state hunting license. Oklahoma City hunting permits can be bought before the drawing at the sites. The permits are $3 daily or $12.50 annually.

A copy of the duck blind locations and hunting regulations will be posted at each site. All hunting must be from designated blinds. No bank hunting or hunting from watercraft is allowed.

All watercraft used to transport hunters to and from blinds must have a current city boating permit.

For more information, call the Lake Overholser patrol station at 789-3746 or the Lake Draper patrol station at 794-5010.


The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a white-tailed deer management workshop Sept. 19 in Norman at the Frye Auditorium at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds.

Participants can register just for the workshops, which include lunch, for $15. To receive a copy of the White-tailed Deer Foods and Management publication, the fee is $35.

Preregistration is requested and availability is limited. For more information or to register, visit www.noble/org/agevents or call Jackie Kelley at (580) 224-6360.
