  • Archery for Antelope, Bear, Deer, and Elk - The season begins during the early portions of October for each, but there are varying ending dates and other guidelines. Antelope and bear archery is only open in certain counties and both end only a few weeks after opening, much earlier than the other game seasons. Meanwhile, archery seasons for deer, and elk all end in early to mid January of the following year. In addition, elk season is only for hunting on private lands.
  • Rabbit - For those interested in hunting smaller creatures, hunting season for rabbit opens in early October and ends in mid-March of the following year.

  • Youth Deer Gun and Youth Elk Gun - Both youth seasons begin in mid-October but last only for three days. Also, youth elk is limited to private lands only.
  • Turkey Fall Gun - The season begins in late October and lasts until about mid-November, just in time for Thanksgiving dinner. The hunting for this game is also restricted to certain open counties. Hunters should be advised to check with their local counties for additional details.
The Oklahoma Hunting Guide also outlines a few additional guidelines for avid turkey hunters: the shooting hours are a half-hour before official sunrise to official sunset. In addition, roost shooting is prohibited.

Clearly, with all of these options available, it’s no wonder that hunters in Oklahoma and surrounding parts cast an eager eye towards the fall months. The weather is still warm, the hunting is bountiful, and “The Sooner State” is welcoming for all outdoor enthusiasts.
