Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

Oklahoma State Big Game Records

Home to the world’s largest peanut, Oklahoma has some pretty big record-book entries, too


That’s right, Oklahoma stakes claim to the world’s largest peanut, but a quick look at the record book reveals a variety of big game species there for the chasing. The panhandle features pronghorn hunting with a 2018 entry that scores more than 82 points. Typical and nontypical whitetail deer entries abound. Black bears aren’t shy about making the book, either, but the real curveball is elk. The largest populations are found in the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge (established by early Boone and Crockett members). Since the 1960s, the state has held a hunt there to manage elk populations. Only one elk made it to the records so far.
