WMA Public Dove Fields 2016 - 2017

Dove Management Area Regulations

The following fields are open on a first-come basis. A Wildlife Management Area permit is required for all fields. Please consider the other hunters as well as the landowners whose cooperation makes these fields possible. Signs will be placed along roads directing hunters to the fields. All federal and state laws apply. Fields are open only on days and times indicated. Fields denoted by an asterisk (*) require hunters to sign in (not before 12:00 noon) and sign out on all hunts. No species other than mourning doves and Eurasian collared doves may be hunted during scheduled dove hunts. Please remove all litter, including spent shell hulls, from fields when leaving!

Don't forget to get a Migratory Bird Permit from your license vendor – it's required but it's free!
