State wildlife commissioners voted Monday to expand doe hunting in Oklahoma.
The antlerless only gun hunting deer seasons in December will be lengthened from six days to 10 days.
Antlerless only gun hunting has been allowed for two consecutive three-day weekends in December.
This year, a 10-day antlerless gun season for most of the state will run from Dec. 17 through Dec. 26. That season will still be closed in the Panhandle and most of southeast Oklahoma.
No other changes were made Monday to the deer seasons.
In other action, the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission also changed the antler points restriction for bull elk hunting on private land.
Before, a bull elk had to have at least six points on one side before it could be legally harvested. Commissioners voted Monday to change that restriction to five points. More cow elk hunting days were added in the Slick Hills area in southwest Oklahoma.
