Early hunting seasons set for dove

AUSTIN -- The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service SRC (Service Regulation Committee) has approved the 2011-12 Texas early migratory game bird seasons, including a 70-day season and 15-bird daily bag statewide for dove, a 16-day early season for teal and Canada geese.

Texas dove season in the North and Central Dove Zones will run from Thursday, Sept. 1, through Sunday, Oct. 23, and reopen Friday, Dec. 23, through Sunday, Jan. 8, with a 15-bird daily bag and not more than two white-tipped doves.

The South Zone dove season will run Friday, Sept. 23, through Sunday, Oct. 30, reopening Saturday, Dec. 23, through Monday, Jan. 23, with a 15-bird daily bag and not more than two white-tipped doves.

Texas petitioned the Service unsuccessfully this year to allow for an earlier season opening framework for the South Zone. The hope was to open the South Zone the Friday after the Special White-Winged Dove Area closed, which would result in two full weekends of dove hunting in the South Zone in September. The proposal was unanimously approved by the Central Flyway; however, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service denied the proposal for fear that it would negatively impact late nesting mourning doves in the South Zone.

“We would not move a proposal forward if we believed that it would have a negative impact on the resources, and we do not believe that this proposal would have,” said Corey Mason, dove program leader for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. “This proposal was about increasing hunting opportunity. We have been asked by hunters, land managers, and outfitters for two weekends of hunting opportunity in September. We are disappointed by the USFWS decision.”

The Special White-winged Dove Area will open to white-winged dove afternoon-only (noon to sunset) hunting the first two full weekends in September running from Sept. 3-4 and 10-11 and reopen when the regular South Zone season begins on Friday, Sept. 23, through Sunday, Oct. 30, and again from Saturday, Dec. 23, through Thursday, Jan. 19. The Special White-winged Dove Area season takes four of the allowable 70 days, so when the regular season opens, this area must close four days earlier than the rest of the South Zone. During the early two weekends, the daily bag limit is 15 birds, to include not more than four mourning doves and 2 white-tipped doves. Once the general season opens, the aggregate bag limit will be 15.
