So whats the deal with Oklahoma this year?
Seems like everybody here is killing nice bucks this year. I have seen 3 big deer while hunting this year. Just about more than I have seen in the past 10 years all together. Many of my friends are killing big bucks (way more than usual).
Was the low harvest last year due to some habitat/weather thing that allowed the deer to not have to move much and let some of these bucks grow older?
Or, is it the change of management direction by the ODWC is kicking in and this is something that might continue?
What do you guys think?

Everyone Im talking to is not having the most successfull year. Most the bigger bucks were harvested in the early season.
Oklahoma doing a better job managing deer. Two buck limit might help in the next few years.
Im thinking the number will be down over all again. Whats your thoughts on that?

Western Oklahoma is getting a reputution for good deer management. Got to let them walk a few years to get large.Elite bows, Vortex Binos, Trophy Taker sights, Carter releases, Goldtip Arrows. CBE sights, Vapor Trail Strings, B Stinger stabilizers

May be that me and all of my friends are just getting really lucky this year with the nice bucks.

I do feel you could be right
I have often noticed after a few bad years you see some larger bucks. But the trend in Oklahoma over the last few years has been achieving some good bucks.
I was tild the Oklahoma youth hunts harvest were quite the success. My butcher got lots of deer this weekend. It will help the harvest numbers. My butcher says he got atleast what ht had last year. My lease has the least amount of harvest in the ten years I have ran it. Lots has to due with guy that works the cattle. He not working with the hunters at all. Clearing way to much cover for cattle pasture.

I've only seen a couple of nice bucks this year however what scares me is I saw very few young bucks. Does have been thicker than snot and I've been filling the freezer with them....................5 so far in fact and if I don't see a buck by the end of december I will make it 6 if I get the chance. Last year was my worst year ever..........I normally kill 3 does at least a year. Last year total of 0 deer. With wife in college and not working I'm more interested in backstrap and deersteaks than I am horns.

The only thing I know, is that Oklahoma benefitted from the Big 12 having stupid tie breaker rules that resulted in the better team getting screwed into playing Ohio State instead of Florida.

So Texas Tech didnt really beat the socks off you now did they? Didnt we score like 60 points. OU won it last five games by scoring 60 points or more. Now no other team in college has done that. Bob Stoops didnt make the rules for BCS. Now when Texas is playing for the championship. I pull for the Big 12 team. Its a full season and not one game. How bad did OU beat Texas Tech?

It is a full season...but head to head matters and Mack (unlike Stoops) takes his foot off the gas and doesn't leave his starters in to score 60 points every game. The rules will be changed next year I guarantee, but that doesn't do us any good this year. I will never root for Stoops...ever.Hook 'Em Horns

Everyone doesnt want to follow the rules set
We lost to a very good Texas team. We beat OSU alot worse than you guys did. Both teams are deserving of the trip to Florida. Its not a good system and I hope it does change. OU will have there hands full in Florida. But those two freshnman corners better get ready for alot better recievers than Bama had thats for sure.

I felt if we didnt win are last games very favorable that Texas would be the BCS Champion. Im not saying we are better. Im saying we won with the current BCS rules. If you dont think OU had a great season, your diffiantly wrong. Once again had you guys beat Texas Tech we wouldnt be talking about this. BCS rules were in place at the begginning of the season. Everyone knew the rules.
Lots of one loss teams in ever conference. Nothing fair about it. Time to set a playoff in college football.

I would like to see a playoff type situation also. Wish it was in place for this year because I think on most days this season OU would beat TX.

And of course the OU fans think that OU would win a rematch on most days (just not on the day it actuall counted)...I say bring em on, cause we would beat them again! Hook 'Em HornsHook 'Em Horns
