OK: Cy Curtis book free online at the all new wildlifedepartment.com

For the first time, trophy whitetail hunters hoping to find
their name in the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s Cy
Curtis Awards book can view the publication free online at the all
new wildlifedepartment.com.

“We’ve revamped wildlifedepartment.com to make it more visually
appealing and user-friendly,” said Nels Rodefeld, information and
education chief for the Wildlife Department. “Along with the Cy
Curtis book, the new wildlifedepartment.com has all kinds of great
features and resources to provide more and better information to
our state’s hunters and anglers.”

While every deer harvested is a trophy in some way to the sportsman
that brings it home, there are those bucks whose sheer antler size
is notable among others. In Oklahoma, those deer may be eligible
for recognition in the Cy Curtis Awards Program, which recognizes
whitetail deer with a minimum typical score of 135, or a
non-typical minimum of 150 using the Boone & Crockett antler
scoring system.

The Cy Curtis Awards program – named in honor of the Wildlife
Department biologist largely responsible for the restoration of
whitetail deer in the state – was initiated in 1975 when only seven
deer were inducted. Last deer season, nearly 300 deer were added to
the Cy Curtis book.

Now posted free on wildlifedepartment.com, the Cy Curtis book is
more accessible than ever. In fact, wildlifedepartment.com makes a
range of outdoor-related information available to visitors with a
new look and feel to help sportsmen get the most from the outdoors.
Hunting season dates, fishing reports, regulations, event
calendars, news articles, interactive maps of public hunting
locations and more are all available at the click of a mouse.

“Wildlifedepartment.com is really a great tool for Oklahoma
sportsmen,” Rodefeld said. “It’s our most comprehensive source of
information and resources for hunters, anglers and wildlife
enthusiasts, whether your goal is to read up on hunting
regulations, complete an online hunter education home study, learn
where to fish for trout or read an article about a certain species
of wildlife.”
