Beginning in early 2019, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation will unveil a new cutting edge, user-friendly license management system to better serve all citizens in their interactions with the Department.

Melinda Streich, Assistant Director of Administration and Finance for the Department, introduced the new system at the regular meeting of the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission on June 4.

This technological leap forward will make it much easier and more convenient for the public to get hunting and fishing licenses, to learn what the law requires for various activities, to keep track of hunter education requirements, to apply for controlled hunts, to check in game harvests, to buy items from the Outdoor Store, and to receive noteworthy communications from the Department.

The new customer-based system will replace the current license online sales process and permit sales. It will be a “one-stop shop” approach that improves the constituent’s experience with the Wildlife Department. Another benefit is that the Wildlife Department will incur no up-front costs to acquire the new system, and will not raise license or permit fees.
