Dove Season Opens September 1


Dove hunting season will open Sunday, Sept. 1, across Oklahoma. The dove opener is always a highly anticipated opportunity for many hunters to get back into the field and harvest some game after the long, hot summer.

Opening Day Reminder


The OLAP is entering its third season, and feedback about hunters' actions has been overwhelmingly positive. Oklahoma hunters have been exceptionally courteous and respectful to the land and landowners, please continue to uphold this standard. 

A dove season reminder: Do not hunt within 150 yards of homes. Be mindful of where your shotshell pellets are coming down, and do not shoot over property boundaries. 

"A peculiar virtue in wildlife ethics is that the hunter ordinarily has no gallery to applaud or disapprove of his conduct. Whatever his acts, they are dictated by his own conscience, rather than by a crowd of onlookers. It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of this fact." -Aldo Leopold
