Effective January 1, 2016 and thanks to a historic agreement between the Cherokee Nation and the State of Oklahoma, all Cherokee Nation Citizens residing in Oklahoma are eligible for a free Cherokee Nation Hunting & Fishing License.
The Compact is an agreement between the Cherokee Nation and the State of Oklahoma, as sovereign governments, to promote the proper management and conservation of a shared wildlife resource. The new compact creates a joint system that allows Cherokees to hunt and fish in all 77 counties of the state with just one license.
The Cherokee Nation began mailing the licenses in December.
