Dove Season Fast Approaching

JACKSON - Dove hunting seasons will open on September 1 in the North Zone and September 13 in the South Zone.  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.  The South Dove Zone is defined as areas south of U.S. Hwy. 84 and east of MS Hwy. 35.
