OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Military officials are planning to sign a hunting agreement with Oklahoma wildlife officials to expand hunting dates at a state military installation in northeastern Oklahoma.
A signing ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday at Camp Gruber between the Oklahoma Military Department and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
The agreement will also specify what land will be available for hunting in future years.
Used as a training base by the Oklahoma Army National Guard, Camp Gruber covers about 87 square miles and is located southeast of Muskogee.
Oklahoma’s Adjutant General Robbie Asher says the new land use agreement will ensure the Oklahoma National Guard military units are able to effectively train, while still granting access for hunting enthusiasts.
