Private dove land permits available
The Private Land Dove Field Program is a popular program in which Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) biologists work with private landowners to prepare dove fields and manage public access on private lands for hunting.
For the 2013-14 hunting season, MDWFP private land dove fields will be located in Copiah, Jones, Kemper, Pearl River, Prentiss, Rankin and Tate counties. These fields were planted in a variety of crops favored by doves, including sunflowers, millet, and corn.
Permits allow hunters to hunt three days per week (Monday, Wednesday and Saturday) during the first two dove seasons. These permits provide an excellent opportunity to introduce youth to hunting, as each permit allows up to two youth to hunt with an adult hunter at no additional cost.
To ensure safety and hunt quality, only a limited number of permits are available for each field.
“It is the goal of the MDWFP to provide a safe, quality hunt for Mississippi’s dove hunters,” said Scott Baker, MDWFP Dove Field Program Leader. “Since these hunts are administered by MDWFP, hunters can rest assured that fields have been prepared properly.”
Specific information on each field including maps, size of the field, type of crop planted, number of available permits and cost may be found at www.mdwfp.com/dove.
