It has become an OKL tradition to feature a selection of Oklahoma-based products and experiences each holiday season. Here are a few of our favorite local gift ideas for Christmas 2021!

Located near Perry, Bluestem Hunting specializes in European pheasant shoots, while offering top-notch hospitality and an atmosphere of camaraderie among hunters. Kay Electric Cooperative member and trustee, Verl Brorsen, runs the business with help of his family. “It’s a lot of fast-paced action, a maximum amount of shooting with a minimum amount of walking. Bring your 90-year-old dad. People who can’t walk far can participate,” Brorsen says.
