Oklahoma is full of beautiful hikes and outdoor views. That makes hunting here some of the best in the country. With upcoming seasons for deer, elk, antelope, bear, turkey, quail, pheasant, and rabbit, there is something in Oklahoma for every sportsman or woman. In addition to the wide variety of game, there is also plenty of public hunting land in Oklahoma. So whether you want to catch your own Thanksgiving dinner with Oklahoma turkey hunting or if you’re just an annual Oklahoma deer hunting fan, book one of our Broken Bow cabins and get outside this fall. Here’s the lowdown on two of the state’s most popular hunting seasons—and where to go during them.
Oklahoma Turkey Hunting
Wild turkeys are large, with some growing upward of 20 pounds. Oklahoma has three species: Eastern, Rio Grande, and Merriam’s. You’re most likely to see Eastern turkeys around Beavers Bend Creative Escapes, but the Rio Grandes aren’t far away. They will respond to turkey bird calls and are typically hunted with a shotgun. You’ll find these gorgeous birds on most of the hunting land in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma Deer Hunting
Whitetail deer is the most popular game among Oklahoma hunters. Archery season for Oklahoma deer hunting runs from October to January, so you can get outside and catch some venison all winter long. If you prefer hunting with a rifle, there is a two-week window from the end of November through the beginning of December. The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation has a comprehensive list of all hunting seasons in the state.
Public Hunting Land in Oklahoma
Now that you know what to hunt, it’s time to discuss where to do it. The 5,420-acre Broken Bow Wildlife Management Area is right by Beavers Bend Creative Escapes, so our Broken Bow cabins provide easy access to some of the best hunting land in Oklahoma. You can also check out the 14,000-acre McCurtain County Wilderness Area and the serene Broken Bow Lake Public Hunting Area.
If you’re visiting from out of state, remember to buy an Oklahoma non-resident hunting license. Find information on all of the different permit options and purchase the Oklahoma out of state hunting license that is right for you.
