Dove-Hunting Season Opens Saturday

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. --  The Georgia dove season opens at noon on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013. 

"Many WMAs provide fields managed specifically for dove so there is no lack of opportunity for desired locations," says John W. Bowers, chief of Game Management. "Opening day typically is fun-filled, as many hunts involve cookouts and lots of activity, making it a great time to introduce family and friends to hunting." 

Many WMA public dove fields are reserved solely for quota hunts on opening day.  Review dove hunting rules and regulations to ensure the availability of the field you plan to visit.
