TULSA - Muzzleloader deer season starts Saturday in Oklahoma.

More than 77,000 hunters took advantage of it last year, but before they did, each had to get their license.

It's now easier than ever to get one.

The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation is using a new online license system, along with a mobile app called 'Go Outdoors Oklahoma.'

Now instead of having to go into a store to purchase a hunting licenses, everything can be bought online.

"No one likes to wait in line at Walmart and they forget before they go hunting and then they have to run to Walmart in the middle of the night, so now they can just buy it right then on the phone or on the computer," said Oklahoma State Game Warden Brandon Fulton.

Before, hunters were required by law to have their paper license on them.

But if you have the mobile app downloaded, all you need is your phone to pull up all of your licenses.
