OK: Free Hunting Days Pave Way for Taking Someone Hunting

Oklahoma Free Hunting Days take place Sept. 3-4, during which Oklahoma residents do not need a hunting license or HIP permit to go afield.

According to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s migratory game bird biologist, Free Hunting Days is a great way to introduce someone to hunting.

“Dove season is a great time to introduce or reintroduce people to the world of hunting,” said Josh Richardson, migratory game bird biologist for the Wildlife Department. “Gear requirements are low, doves are found everywhere and usually in high numbers, and the hunting can occur in more of a social type outing — perfect for those new hunters who need supervision or instruction. And with the Free Hunting Days, potential new hunters don’t even have to buy a license to try this out.”

In addition to dove hunting, squirrel season is open and there are other year-round hunting opportunities are available as well for species such as coyotes. To see a full listing of hunting opportunities, consult the current “Oklahoma Hunting Guide,” available free on wildlifedepartment.com or anywhere hunting licenses are sold.
