Oklahoma Wildlife Management Association at a glance

The Oklahoma Wildlife Management Association (OWMA) is a non-profit organization formed in 2007.  Our mission is to help conserve Oklahoma's wildlife and resources by supporting common sense legislation and conservation that ensures the future of wildlife and wildlife recreation on private and public land.  OWMA is the voice for outdoorsmen and women, landowners and managers who love and care for the land; we make sure their rights are not ignored.  


We strongly support hunting rights and our incredible hunting heritage.

Our Mission

The OWMA was organized to serve as an advocate for the benefit of wildlife and for the rights of wildlife managers, landowners, and hunters in educational, scientific, regulatory, legal, and legislative arenas.  


We are absolutely dedicated to educating all persons, especially the youth of Oklahoma, about the conservation, management and enhancement of wildlife and wildlife habitat on private and public land to ensure the preservation of our cherished rural heritage for future generations.

Anyone who desires to pass the heritage of hunting, fishing , and wise use of natural resources on to future generations while protecting the rights of hunters & fishermen as well as landowner/leaseholder rights should be part of an organization dedicated to fulfillment of those objectives.
