OK: September Offers Early Waterfowling opportunities

Bluewing and greenwing teal are the first to migrate through Oklahoma

September is a big month for hunters across Oklahoma, and not just for those pursuing doves. The resident Canada goose and September teal seasons both open Sept. 10.

Resident Canada goose season will run through Sept. 19, and September teal season will run through Sept. 25. Shooting hours for both seasons is one half hour before official sunrise to official sunset. Hunters can harvest eight geese daily and four teal daily.

Bluewing and greenwing teal are the first ducks to migrate through Oklahoma as they migrate southward on their traditional journey to wintering grounds in Mexico and Central and South America.

To participate in the September teal season or resident Canada goose season, hunters must possess a resident or nonresident Oklahoma hunting license and a Harvest Information Permit (HIP). Additionally, hunters 16 years old and older must carry on his person a valid federal duck stamp and Oklahoma waterfowl license, unless otherwise exempt.


All waterfowl hunting is restricted to federally-approved nontoxic shot in all areas of the state. Possession of lead shot while hunting waterfowl is prohibited.


For complete regulations, consult the “2011-12 Oklahoma Hunting Guide" or log on to the Wildlife Department’s website at wildlifedepartment.com.
