Early Dove Season Opens September 2nd, 2017

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!
