Thursday, October 20, 2022 - Muzzleloader season is an excellent time to go deer hunting, for several reasons.

For one, the late October timeframe offers the best of Oklahoma's weather and seasonal natural beauty.

And if cool mornings and fall foliage aren't enough, deer activity is picking up as the rut approaches, increasing the chances of catching a deer on the move.

This year, deer muzzleloader season is Oct. 22-30. Muzzleloader hunters can take four deer during the nine-day season (no more than one may be antlered).

Also opening Oct. 22 will be muzzleloader seasons for black bear in southeastern Oklahoma, and elk on private lands statewide. For complete details, see the current Oklahoma Fishing and Hunting Regulations on or on the Go Outdoors Oklahoma mobile app.
