The Bowhunting Council of Oklahoma is the state organization whose main purpose is to promote the sport of bowhunting across the state of Oklahoma. For over 30 years the Bowhunting Council of Oklahoma has worked to ensure that the bowhunters of Oklahoma and those that follow will be able to hunt with a bow and arrow.
The Bowhunting Council of Oklahoma stands for the wise use of Oklahoma's natural resources and conservation of wild game and their habitat. The Bowhunting Council of Oklahoma is actively involved in fighting the anti-hunting movement in Oklahoma and across the nation.
