While certain fall activities may be more limited this year due to Covid 19, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation reminds hunters that the outdoors are always open.
With October 1, 2020, marking the first day of several archery seasons across Oklahoma and the Wildlife Department encouraging hunters to harvest more antlerless deer, it could be a perfect year to focus on bowhunting.
The deer archery season is the most popular archery season in Oklahoma, with a record 113,000 archery hunters bringing home 30,748 deer in 2019-20.
It’s also one of the most widely available, running October 1st – January 15, 2021. Deer archery season is open statewide, with a season limit of six deer. New this year, regulations on some public hunting lands have been changed to mirror statewide regulations, and a new rule is now in effect regarding the importation of deer and elk carcasses and carcass parts into Oklahoma from surrounding states.
Deer archery season coincides with turkey archery season, and it’s common for deer hunters to head to the field along with the proper fall turkey license in case they get a chance to harvest a turkey while deer hunting.
