Dove Fields Being Prepared at Black Prairie WMA
Spring turkey season is now a memory, so that means it is time
for the MDWFP to begin preparing dove fields at Black Prairie WMA.
While it may seem like a long time until early fall and the
beginning of dove season, now is the time to begin planting
sunflowers to prepare for the opening day of dove season. The
opening day of dove season is a special tradition in Mississippi,
and MDWFP seeks to provide a unique hunting opportunity for youth
at Black Prairie. The opening day at Black Prairie is open
only to youth hunters 15 years of age and younger. Youth must be
accompanied by a licensed adult when hunting and all hunters must
possess a WMA User Permit unless they are exempt from purchasing an
annual hunting or fishing license.
Mark your calendars for this year's Black Prairie WMA youth
dove hunt which will be held on September 1, 2012. The hunt
will begin at 2:00 pm and last until sunset. After the
September 1st youth hunt, adults will be allowed to hunt on
designated fields from 2:00 pm until sunset on Wednesdays and
