Dove season is just around the corner, with opening day on Saturday, September 2, 2017. REMEMBER the first few days (September 2–8) of dove hunting are only half-day (noon until sunset). Then it opens up ½-hour before sunrise until sunset for the rest of the season (September 9–October 29, November 22–29, December 23–January 15). You can keep 15 doves a day with a possession limit of 45. There are many places to hunt doves on the Wildlife Management Areas; see the links below for more information:
Many hunters take the opportunity to introduce a youngster, or adult friend to hunting with the Apprentice Hunting License. Dove hunters are not required to wear blaze colored material during the firearms deer season. Remember safety first and have fun!
