Interested in Dove Quota Hunts? Deadline to Apply is Aug. 15

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (8/6/2014)

As the summer begins to fade, sportsmen begin to look for fall hunting opportunities, and luckily, dove season is right around the corner with opening day scheduled for noon on Sat. Sept.  6. 

With preparation underway on approximately 40 state dove fields, and countless private fields, you want to be sure to have plans in place.  However, if you want a chance at one of the almost 20 dove quota hunts, you need to hurry and make sure your quota application is in by midnight on Aug. 15! 

Want to know what a field is expected to look like before you commit a quota application?  You are in luck!  Each year, Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division personnel prepare a dove field forecast for wildlife management areas and some additional fields that identifies available crops and anticipates the expected conditions for opening day.  This forecast notes if fields are in excellent, good, fair or poor condition and is now available at www.georgiawildlife.com/DoveForecast

For more information on dove hunting rules and regulations, hunters should review the 2014-2015 Georgia Hunting Seasons and Regulations guide, available at www.georgiawildlife.com/hunting/regulations
