Question: My father has a friend who was convicted of a non violent felony a while back. Obviously cant posess a firearm, but curious if allowed to hunt with a muzzloader in Okla.? I know when you buy one at walmart or academy or whatever there is no paperwork or Id required as long as your 18 that would make me believe you could but wanted to see what you knew about that here in Okla.

That's probably a game warden question.

CONVICTED FELONS AND DELINQUENTS

A. Except as provided in subsection B of this section, it shall be unlawful for any person convicted of any felony in any court of this state or of another state or of the United States to have in his or her possession or under his or her immediate control, or in any vehicle which the person is operating, or in which the person is riding as a passenger, or at the residence where the convicted person resides, any pistol, imitation or homemade pistol, altered air or toy pistol, machine gun, sawed-off shotgun or rifle, or any other dangerous or deadly firearm.

Never again in his life will he be able to possess any type of firearm. I had a case with a guy that got a good old time district judge to rule he was allowed to possess a shotgun while hunting. He currently is in Federal Prison. During his trail his attorney told the judge he recieved an order from the district judge in 1987. The Federal Judge replied well then he has been in violation of federal law since 1987 then. The US Attornys office pursues felons with guns pretty aggresively right now so to answer the question no he can not at either level.

Non violent felons can get a pardon if that is their only criminal conviction at the state level but would still be in subject to federal prosecution
