Oklahoma 2018 quail hunting season opens Nov 10 – Feb 15, 2019 statewide. Daily Limit 10 daily, 20 in possession after the first day.
Two species of quail can be found in Oklahoma—the northern bobwhite’s range is nearly statewide, while the scaled quail is restricted to the western edge, including the panhandle. Both species are ground-dwellers, primarily foraging on seeds and insects.
Dec. 1, 2018 - Jan. 31, 2019. Open areas include Alfalfa, Beaver, Cimarron, Garfield, Grant, Harper, Kay, Major, Noble, Texas, Woods and Woodward counties; the portion of Osage County west of State Highway 18; and the portions of Blaine, Dewey, Ellis, Kingfisher and Logan counties north of State Highway 51.
Daily Limit Cocks only: Two cocks daily; four in possession after the first day. Persons who hunt in two states having separate daily limits may not exceed the largest number of birds that can legally be taken in one of the states in which they take birds.
