GENERAL RUN&GRAVEL: NOTE - Beginning Jan 1, 2011 anyone who enters any Oklahoma Wildlife Management Area MUST HAVE an Oklahoma hunting or fishing license or the new "Conservation Passport License", which costs $26. You may go to a business who sells the license or pay $3 additional to get it online at https://www.wildlifedepartment.com/forget1/Update.aspx. This is a state statute and is separate from DoWackaDo and our entry fees. DWD has kept entry fees low to accomodate the state fee.
