After a successful September hunting doves and teal in Oklahoma, we are ready for prime time waterfowl, deer and hogs!
As our first frost of the season comes tonight, we are preparing for opening morning of Sandhill Crane season on October twenty fourth. The cranes, ducks and white front geese have been arriving daily as the temperature begins to drop. With snow in our forecast for two of the next five days, we are expecting a major migration over the next week which should include our first mallards and lessor Canada geese of the season.
Our long days on the tractor preparing fields, harvesting crops, planting winter wheat, and building blinds have been traded for white lines and windshields in search for the next day’s hunt.
Late October days with new birds arriving, the first frost, opening days of each species’ season, and cold air are what we work toward all summer. Are you ready? Have you made your plans for the winter? What is on your bucket list? Sandhill Cranes? Ducks? Geese?
First up for us are Sandhill Cranes. We typically hunt these large birds in a dry field over decoys out of A-frame style blinds. Sandhill Cranes are wonderful table fare and a challenging bird to hunt with their tremendous eyesight and tough exterior. Cranes have a daily limit of three per hunter and a possession limit of 9 per hunter. We will hunt Sandhill Cranes till Christmas.
If you are interested in hunting Sandhill Cranes in Oklahoma this season give us a call to reserve your dates! We look forward to hunting with you!
