Looking at purchasing land in Oklahoma


Post by glock27 » Sat Jun 08, 2019 6:04 pm

I’m looking at land up in Oklahoma to purchase, I plan to live in Texas. However I would have this land for weekending, 4 wheeling camping etc. until my kids are graduated. Then I plan to move up there. Just curious on the laws up there. I’d love to have a personal range set up there. Also have a deer blind or two set up.

Right now I’m in a suburb with 1/5 an acre lot. I’d probably end up with 20-40 acres in Oklahoma. That’s what I’m thinking. I am just kicking this idea around with the bitter half. But I’ve heard in Texas you need to have at least 40acres to hunt centerfire rifle on, depending on county.

Can someone point me into the right direction of where I need to look for laws and far as burn bans, hunting on your own land, personal rifle range. Just wanting a place to retire on and do whatever I want.

You might want to have all your land in one state when you get old.

A suggestion an executor told me a while back.

Oklahoma is a beautiful state. It is very diversified in its geological makeup. It has the Ozarks Mountains in the East; the Great Plains in the west. The cultural diversity of Oklahoma is very similar to that what we have here in Texas. The people there are great. Living only 8 miles from the Red River, I went into Oklahoma almost daily. It's very easy to fall in love with Oklahoma...But.....it's not Texas. :txflag:

IMO you can't go wrong. :thumbs2:

I believe that OK law requires long guns to be unloaded during transport in your vehicle, and restricts handgun carry to .45 caliber and smaller. Other than that, they are in some ways more libertarian in their gun laws than we are. They had open carry before we did, and they passed Constitutional Carry last year.

BTW, I’m considering land in eastern OK too, and also in western AR. If Texas flips blue, I don’t know how long I could bear to continue living here. I already went through this with California, and left because I couldn’t stand to live with the crazies in charge any longer. And from what I’ve seen so far of Texas democrats, they’re no less crazy than the Californian variety. I suspect that OK will remain solidly conservative/libertarian for the foreseeable future. AR isn’t reliably conservative (see William Jefferson Clinton, and his "beard"), but with a piece of remote land up in the Ozarks somewhere, it doesn’t hardly matter what the propeller-heads in the state capitol do.
