  1. Dove - Though it ends in the fall, the start of dove season is approximately the beginning of September, shortly before the fall equinox.

  3. Squirrel - The season for this type of game has the longest duration of any in the state (including the summer, fall, and winter months), beginning in early May and lasting until January of the following year. In a 2015 article for the All American Banner, squirrel hunting is regarded as “a popular part of Oklahoma’s hunting heritage and still is recognized by many today as a great recreational activity ...though fewer squirrel hunters may take to the woods now, the opportunities to harvest game and sharpen outdoor skills through squirrel hunting are still plentiful in Oklahoma.”
As an added bonus, Oklahoma traditionally sponsors “Free Hunting Days,” in which no hunting licenses or permits are necessary to hunt. Typically, these free days also occur in the early parts of September and provide a special treat for hunters to cap off their summers.
