I see lots of lease offered just across the texas line into Oklahoma.

What are the drawback to hunting in OK vs Texas? Other than the cost of the license?

License cost $280 each season you hunt (Archery/Rifle/Muzzleloader) and as Pitchfork Pred stated the length of rifle season, its about 3 weeks long. This years started Nov. 18 and ended Dec. 3. Im fortunate to get to hunt opening weekend through the first 10 days of rifle but if you can only go up on weekends it will pass by quick!

Only drawbacks are cost of licence, as stated above and length of season. I was looking to buy land there and the season length was a deal breaker for me. Otherwise just like Texas.

If you bow hunt, there is no draw back. You can just use your archery license for all seasons.

You mean if you only use a bow, and not a gun during gun season. Is that right?

I believe thats that Booner1 is saying...if you bow hunt your non-res archery license is good all deer season Oct. thru mid Jan, but if you muzzleloader or rifle hunt then you're restricted to much shorter seasons for the same price as the archery license.

Rifle season is 17 days. Muzzleload is 10 I believe. Archery is close to the same. We have had two ranches in Oklahoma. I think over all the deer are better. This state produces some great deer. With that being said we are selling the Oklahoma ranch bought another in Texas and glad to have a rifle back in our hand. Ill tell you this, if you want to run some cows and have a great deer there is a lot of places that will help you pay for your land with the cows. Its amazing the grazing differences.

Archery runs Oct 1 to Jan 15. Rifle is about three weeks ((was 9 days up until 1990s) good thing is the rut is often full on that opening week rifle. IF you wanted to hunt Archery, Rifle, and Black Powder you would have to buy all three non resident license. 280.00 x 3. I have my lifetime Oklahoma hunting license but you have to live there to get that.
The deer tag includes your hunting license.

Not much of a downside unless you are only rifle hunters.
