Dove Hunting Season Opens Sept. 1

DoveDove hunting season opens statewide this Monday, September 1 and local experts say dove numbers should be pretty high.

According to Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Biologist Scott Waters, recent dry conditions and lack of big rains will actually make for a better dove harvest.

Waters suggests hunting dove near ponds or in fields. Also, he says it's best to scout out an area before hunting.

Dove season lasts until October 31 and also reopens briefly for nine days in November.
