(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The Wildlife Department is proposing that
hunters pass the buck when they've already bagged two in a year.

The Wildlife Department has proposed a two-buck limit per year
on Oklahoma hunters. That goes toward a total of five deer per
year. Hunters can now take three bucks in a one-year period.

A hunter can only bag eight deer in a three-year period.

The two-buck limit is being opposed by the Bowhunting Council of
Oklahoma.

Public hearings are scheduled tonight in Oklahoma City, Idabel
and Woodward. The Wildlife Commission will make the final decision.
