You can use:

SELECT MONTH(date), YEAR(date)
WHERE MONTH(date) = 10
AND YEAR(date) = 2006

You can use Month function

from BOL

MONTH
Returns an integer that represents the month part of a specified date.

Syntax
MONTH ( date )

However, it's better to use a date range expression that SQL can use to search an index (if one exists now or in the future):

SELECT ...
FROM ...
WHERE date >= '20061001' AND date < '20061101'  --to get Oct 2006 only
