Gather friends and family and get ready to head to the dove fields for the opening day of dove season. Who will be with you? The Georgia dove hunting season opens at noon on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2016.
“Hunting for doves brings a lot of joy to families that are anxious to kick off the fall hunting season,” said John W. Bowers, chief of Game Management. “Georgia has a great choice of fields to choose from with approximately 40 state public dove fields, plus opportunities on private land available to the public through a U.S. Department of Agriculture program called the Voluntary Public Access (VPA)/Habitat Incentive Program.”
