Most Oklahoma hunters remember “those old map books” featuring the state’s public hunting lands, and just as many wish they could get their hands on an old copy to keep in their vehicles. But now they can get their hands on something even better. Just in time for Christmas, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation has released a brand new, fully updated, spiral-bound edition of the “Oklahoma Wildlife Management Area Atlas.”
Back by popular demand, this page-by-page guide to Oklahoma’s public hunting land features topographical maps of almost every wildlife management area in the state.
At almost 100 pages, the atlas depicts special features on each WMA such as roads, parking areas, designated campsites, food plots, ponds, wetland development units, non-ambulatory zones and more. Sportsmen can find acreage and contact information for each area as well driving directions.
“The old atlases were always popular, and these books are even bigger and better,” said Nels Rodefeld, information and education chief for the Wildlife Department. “I predict this will be one of our most popular products ever.“
The “Oklahoma Wildlife Management Area Atlas” can be purchased for $25, which includes a free one-year subscription to Outdoor Oklahoma magazine, the official magazine of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. Outdoor Oklahoma features everything related to hunting, fishing, wildlife watching and conservation in Oklahoma. Readers can catch the first glimpse of the Wildlife Department’s annual “Big Game Report, get insider tips on fishing from the magazine’s annual “Anglers’ Guide,” and read a range of articles and news about the outdoors in Oklahoma. Game meat recipes, how-to articles, stunning photography and more are all included.
“If you know an Oklahoma sportsman, then you can get them a great Christmas gift for just $25,” Rodefeld said. “And believe me, the new WMA atlas and a year-long subscription to Outdoor Oklahoma is one gift they are going to like. These are two long-loved outdoor publications in Oklahoma, and both can be very useful resources year-round for sportsmen.”
The new atlases are available at the Wildlife Department headquarters in Oklahoma City (1801 N. Lincoln Blvd) and the Department’s Jenks office (300 S. Aquarium Dr). Copies can also be ordered online at wildlifedepartment.com or by phone at (405) 521-3856. To order by mail, send a check or money order for $25 along with an Outdoor Store order form from wildlifedepartment.com to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, P.O. Box 53465 Oklahoma City, OK (specify address to which atlas should be mailed and, if different, the address to which the subscription to Outdoor Oklahoma magazine should be credited).
