Youth Waterfowl Hunting Opportunities

Brought to you by:

Youth hunters enjoy youth-only seasons in Oklahoma. Help the youth of Oklahoma get involved in the sport of waterfowl hunting and take a kid with you on your next hunt, or encourage them to participate in the youth-only opportunities below.

Youth Waterfowl Weekends

  • Panhandle: Oct. 4–5, 2014
  • Zone 1: Oct. 11–12, 2014
  • Zone 2: Oct. 18–19, 2014

These weekends are special waterfowl hunting opportunities for youths, providing two additional days outside of the regular waterfowl season. Youth hunters must be 15 or younger. An adult must accompany the youth hunter into the field. The accompanying adult must be 18 or older and hunter education certified or exempt, regardless of whether the youth is hunter education certified. This adult cannot hunt ducks, mergansers or coots; but may participate in other open seasons. All species and sex specific limits are the same as during the regular seasons.
