JACKSON – The Commission on Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks has approved dates for the 2013-14 dove season. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides a “window” of dates from which states may select specific season dates. The 2013-14 dove season will be similar to previous seasons with a few minor changes.
Once again, Mississippi hunters will enjoy a 70-day, 15-bird daily bag limit for mourning and white-winged doves for the 2013-14 season. The possession limit is three times the daily bag limit. Mississippi is divided into two zones to maximize hunting opportunities throughout the state. The North Dove Zone is defined as areas north of U.S. Hwy. 84, plus areas south of U.S. Hwy. 84 and west of MS Hwy. 35. Season dates for the North Zone are as follows: Sept. 1-22; Oct. 12-Nov. 4; and Dec. 20-Jan. 12. The South Dove Zone is defined as areas south of U.S. Hwy. 84 and east of MS Hwy. 35. Season dates for the South Zone are as follows: Sept. 1-9; Oct. 5-Nov. 4; and Dec. 14-Jan. 12. The season will open at 2 p.m. on Sept. 1 for both dove zones.
“The opening day of dove season is one of the most popular hunting dates of the year,” said James Callicutt, Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Waterfowl Program Biologist. The MDWFP provides an abundance of public dove hunting opportunities on many state Wildlife Management Areas as well as on private lands through the private lands dove field program.
