Hunting Season: What’s In and What to Look For Right Now


As hunting seasons vary by region, it is important for hunters to know what game animals are in season before heading out. Hunting during the wrong season could result in fines or even a loss of hunting privileges. In this post, we will discuss what game animals are currently in season across different regions.


Deer hunting is one of the most popular hunting activities across North America. The deer season varies by state and province but generally spans from September to January with specific dates depending on whether it is archery, firearm or muzzleloader season. It’s important to check local regulations as bag limits and antler restrictions may also differ.

Ducks and Geese

Duck and goose seasons typically run from late summer through winter months, depending on the location. There are many species of waterfowl available for harvest including mallards, wood ducks, pintails as well as Canada geese and snow geese.


Fall turkey hunting has become increasingly popular over recent years with many states offering both fall and spring turkey hunts. Fall turkeys tend to be more difficult than their spring counterparts as they do not respond quite so vigorously to calls due to mating being over for the year.

Rabbit and Squirrel

Small game like rabbits and squirrels provide an excellent introduction into hunting sports while also providing a great option when larger game isn’t available. Rabbit hunters should seek out brushy fields that offer plenty of cover while squirrel hunters will want heavily wooded areas where these playful rodents spend their time high up in trees.

Closing Thoughts

In conclusion, whether you’re new hunter or seasoned veteran its crucially important that all aspects of your trip comply with applicable laws regarding safety practices, licenses & permits requirements crop damage control considerations (if any), and animal species-specific hunting season information. It’s important to do your research and thoroughly understand the specifics of hunting seasons before heading out. Happy Hunting!
